Devin White ripped the Kansas City Chiefs’ Super Bowl 55 gameplan to shreds on Undisputed.

Devin White and his Tampa Bay Buccaneers had no issues whatsoever generating pressure on a bewildered Kansas City Chiefs offensive line in Super Bowl LV.

The Buccaneers linebacker appeared on FS1’s Undisputed live from his car on Tuesday. Always a great interview, White told Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe how it was facing the Chiefs. He could not believe Kansas City tried to stop the Buccaneers’ pass rush without having a tight end chip or add any extra protection to help the offensive line. White said the Chiefs were “cocky.”

The Tampa Bay pass rush is why the Buccaneers won Super Bowl 55

You could tell within their first few offensive possessions that the Chiefs had no hope of containing the vaunted Buccaneers’ pass rush. It was relentless, yet refined. Tampa Bay rarely sent more than for blitzers at quarterback Patrick Mahomes, yet they were able to generate pressure on almost every snap. Kansas City did not make any adjustments and got roasted for it.

As the old adage goes, to the victor goes the spoils, and Tampa Bay beat Kansas City soundly. Therefore, Buccaneers players like White get to write the history of this league championship game. While the Buccaneers were unequivocally the better team on that Super Bowl Sunday, a half-baked offensive gameplan by Andy Reid and Eric Bieniemy did not help the Chiefs at all.

White can call the Chiefs “cocky” because his team handled Kansas City on the biggest of stages.
