Buccaneers Will Make Super Bowl History Because of Incredibly Lucky Break

Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers punched their ticket to Super Bowl LV after defeating the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship. While this is the 55th all-time Super Bow game, it will make history, because the Buccaneers are the first team to play in the championship on their home field.

This game taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, is only possible because of a lucky break for the Bucs.

SoFi Stadium, the current home of the Los Angeles Chargers and Rams, was the original host for Super Bowl LV. However, heavy rains prevented the stadium from completing construction on time. This matters because a stadium must be open for two years before hosting the Super Bowl.

This incredibly lucky quirk put a hold on SoFi Stadium hosting the Super Bowl, allowing Tampa to be named this year's Super Bowl host in 2017. Obviously a lot has happened for Tampa since 2017, so there's no way they would've thought this was a possibility.

However, the team put itself in a position to make history by nailing the NFL Draft in recent years and bringing in quarterback legend Tom Brady this past offseason.

This season has been the perfect storm for Tampa, and they'll hope to finish it off with a Lombardi trophy in February.
