Super Bowl 55: Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady connected on a touchdown near the end of the first quarter of Super Bowl LV. That score and extra point put the Tampa Bay Buccaneers up 7-3 over the Kansas City Chiefs.

Deep in Chiefs territory, Brady found his familiar target off a play-action with a simple dump-off that Gronk carried into the end zone.

Their 13th touchdown pass connection is the highest all-time postseason total, and it was the first TD drive directed by Brady in his extensive Super Bowl history.
