It could be argued that no position has changed more in the NFL's history than the tight end. Once primarily a sixth offensive lineman who would catch the occasional pass, tight ends have become key cogs on offense.
It's been 18 years since the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last made an appearance in the Super Bowl. But thanks in part to the addition of Tom Brady, the best postseason quarterback to ever play the game, that drought came to an end last Sunday. The Buccaneers raised the George Halas Trophy for just the second time in franchise history, officially crowning them as NFC champions by virtue of a 31-26 victory over the top-seeded Packers. It's a title that did not come easy for the NFC's No.

The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams are all set to square off on the NFL's biggest stage in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday in Atlanta. Marquee players such as Tom Brady, Jared Goff, Todd Gurley, Aaron Donald, and Rob Gronkowski (to name a few) will command most of the attention heading into Super Sunday. And justifiably so, as one of these star players will most likely exit Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Feb.
Love them or hate them, the New England Patriots have established an NFL dynasty that may never be matched in the salary cap era. Defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on the road Sunday earned them a fourth Super Bowl bid in the past five seasons and the team’s ninth with Bill Belichick as head coach.

The Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots have spent decades defined by their quarterback play. Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady, two surefire Hall of Famers, have collected Super Bowl rings on the backs of MVP, All-Pro performances that have carried the team along with them.
