BOSTON (CBS) — One way or another watching Super Bowl LV was an emotional experience for all of New England. And while everyone wished the Patriots were playing in football’s biggest game, the team was at least happy to see the greatest player in franchise history celebrate another championship.

Moments after the Buccaneers finished off a 31-9 victory over the Chiefs, the official Patriots Twitter account sent out a short and sweet message to the GOAT.

“Congratulations to the greatest of all time,” the tweet stated.

The Patriots made sure to send a message to Rob Gronkowski, too, imploring him to not damage this year’s Lombardi Trophy. (Gronk may or may not have dented a Lombardi while bunting a baseball.)

Julian Edelman, one of Brady’s favorite receivers of all time, got in on the fun, too.

Brady of course won six titles as a member of the Patriots, first winning in 2001 and winning his final championship in 2018.

Brady connected with Gronkowski for not one but two touchdowns in the first half on Sunday night, helping Tampa Bay build a 14-3 lead. Brady connected with another former Patriot — Antonio Brown — for a touchdown before halftime to make it 21-3, and the Bucs never looked back.
