Patrick Mahomes Leads Chiefs To Super Bowl Glory

Kansas City rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 and win their first Super Bowl title for 50 years at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.

In the NFL’s 100th season, and at the 11th Championship game in Miami, 24-year-old Patrick Mahomes became the youngest ever player to win a Super Bowl and MVP award, while Andy Reid ended his long wait for a Vince Lombardi Trophy.

Both teams had significant leads in a see-saw contest, but Mahomes’ five-yard touchdown pass to Damien Williams with less than three minutes remaining put the Chiefs in control before Williams ran in another TD to open up an 11-point deficit and set up the defense to end Kansas City’s long wait.

When Kendall Fuller picked off San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the dying seconds, the victory was sealed.

After fitting team introductions from Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson and Demi Lovato’s rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, the Chiefs started with the ball when the Niners elected to defer.

However, newly-crowned Defensive Rookie of the Year Nick Bosa made an immediate impact for San Francisco, swatting down a Mahomes pass before the Chiefs QB misfired to Williams on third down.

After starting their opening drive at their own 18, the Niners opened the scoring midway through the first quarter.
