New Titletown? Tampa Bay, Boston newspapers react to Brady's SB win originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Nearly 20 years after winning his first Super Bowl title with the New England Patriots in February 2002, Tom Brady captured his seventh championship Sunday by leading the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 55.

Brady's sustained success over two decades is almost impossible to process, but sometimes, a picture and a headline can tell a thousand words. So, let's see how newspapers across the country reacted to the GOAT's latest triumph.

No newspaper front page roundup would be complete without checking in on the New York tabloids, which didn't disappoint in their reactions to Brady succeeding at age 43.

Brady already admitted he's returning for a 22nd NFL season, so we'll have at least another year of appreciating the GOAT's greatness.
