The play of outside linebacker Shaquil Barrett was instrumental in the Bucs’ 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. Barrett finished with one sack and a game-high four quarterback hurries of Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who passed for just 270 yards and no touchdowns, while being intercepted twice by Tampa Bay’s swarming defense.
“I think our performance speaks for itself,” Barrett said. “Hey, we got to be at the top somewhere. The Chiefs got a high-powered offense. The way we came out there and played tonight – offensively, defensively, special teams – we all did what we had to do to get the win. No touchdowns were unheard of for the Chiefs offense. If you told anyone they won’t score a touchdown in any game this year, if you would’ve bet on that you would’ve made so much money. Nobody would’ve thought the Chiefs would’ve never scored a touchdown in a Super Bowl game.”
