That second quarter was most of the scoring happened, as Tampa Bay answered with a fast touchdown drive of their own to break the 7-7 tie courtesy of a Mike Evans touchdown. The receiver ended the game with a team-high 51 yards receiving and Mut 21 coins that particular score.

Among the very first initial blips for Kansas City came on their ensuing drive. With Mahomes and business getting the ball to begin the second half, this was an perfect opportunity to get points on the board on two-straight possessions before Tampa Bay's offense could even touch the ball again. Bucs corner Sean Murphy-Bunting was able to become in-between the quarterback and receiver and haul in the pass by the past year's Super Bowl MVP. From there, Tampa Bay was able to tack on a field goal prior to halftime and move up by double digits.

Kansas City wasted no time attempting to get back into this game at the start of the second half, ripping off two chunk plays that totaled 58 yards before Mahomes linked with receiver Sammy Watkins, that grabbed a 30-yard pass onto the play, to get a seven-yard touchdown.

At this point of the match, both defenses really started to clamp down. Tampa Bay was closed out in the third quarter and K.C.'s front seven was able to stress Tom Brady more regularly, including a key sack that would late hold the offense to a field goal at the onset of the fourth quarter. Both guards forced three-and-outs on back-to-back string in the fourth, including a clutch stop from the Chiefs, who had been cheap Madden 21 coins giving Mahomes and his offense down the ball with over two minutes left and a chance to march down the field to win their second consecutive title. And they nearly did.
