It’s nice to have good karma on your side.

The NFL gods have quite a sense of humor.

This most improbable season ended in an improbable manner with a Super Bowl blowout. At 10:11 p.m., the Bucs turned the lights out on the Chiefs after a dominating performance that Tom Brady called “our best game of the year.”

This was worse. Much worse.

Todd Bowles draped a straitjacket over Tyreek Hill and Tampa Bay owned the trenches, hounding Mahomes relentlessly. A 14-2 powerhouse that had converted 49 percent on third down during the regular season went 3-for-13 on the money down.
