Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski are heading to the Super Bowl, once again.
The NFL athletes led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 31-26 victory over the Green Bay Packers, the No. 1 team in the conference, in Sunday's NFC championship.
Super Bowl LV, which will feature Tampa Bay versus the Kansas City Chiefs, marks Brady's 10th Super Bowl appearance and Gronkowski's sixth, all of which were during the duo's tenure with the New England Patriots prior to joining the Buccaneers last year.
To celebrate their big win, the pair shared a video on Instagram recreating their iconic "Bad Boy for Life" video that went viral two years ago when the Patriots beat the Chiefs in the AFC Championship to advance to the Super Bowl.
In Sunday's video, set to the hit song by P. Diddy, Brady, 43, smiles at the camera while nodding his head before panning to Gronkowski, 31, who pulls up his jacket to show off his "NFC Champions" t-shirt. The clip then switches to footage of the duo playing for the Buccaneers.
"W," Brady captioned the video on Instagram, while Gronkowski reposted it on his own account, adding, "Part Dos."
"I'm the 6th Gronkowski ❤️❤️‼️‼️," Brady commented on his teammates' post.
Gronkowski shared another post on Instagram on Monday that included a photo of himself with several Tampa Bay teammates. "Your NFC champ #superbowlbound tight ends! Love you guys!! What a fun ride it's been this year. One more to go! You guys are all good guys, glad to have you boys by my side!!!" the star captioned the photo.
Gronkowski came out of retirement following several seasons with the Patriots to join Tampa Bay in April 2020, a month after Brady revealed he was also leaving the Massachusetts team to sign with the Buccaneers.
Last July, Brady told PEOPLE that he was excited to reunite with his longtime teammate. "I know he's been working really hard and it's really going to be up to us to determine how things go," the quarterback said. "And I think we're excited to get started."
Brady added of Gronkowski, "He's got such an infectious personality and I think everyone could see over the last year, year and a half — or really since he came to the league — he's just such a fun-loving, excitable, charismatic guy. And you couple that with his incredible football ability and it makes him a great teammate."
The Buccaneers last reached the Super Bowl 18 years ago for Super Bowl XXXVII when they won against the Oakland Raiders in 2003.
Brady and the Buccaneers will be the first NFL team to play a Super Bowl on their home field.
Super Bowl LV is scheduled for Feb. 7 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa Bay.
