Chiefs win the Super Bowl in overtime

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22, Sunday, at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. This is the Chiefs fourth Super Bowl victory, and their third under coach Andy Reid. At the start of the game the Chiefs were in fact loosing as they were starting to trail the opposing team 19-16 with less than two minutes on the clock for the fourth quarter. Until the Chiefs’ Harrison Butker kicked a 29-yard field goal, and Patrick Mahomes hit Travis Kelce on a crosser for a 22-yard gain that enabled the Chiefs to get an easy kick, according to The Athletic. 

As a result of this win, one of the Chiefs‘ most popular and best players Patrick Mahomes earned himself a whopping third Super Bowl MVP. He is now reportedly one of the five quarterbacks in the history of the league to win a minimum of three Super Bowl! It started out as a tough and long game with emotions running high as the Chiefs were trailing Kansas City 10-3, and Travis Kelce (another notable and amazing player. As well as boyfriend to pop mega-star Taylor Swift who was also in attendance) was seen getting into a minor altercation with coach Reid on the field. 

Taylor Swift apparently wasn’t the only music star in attendance as R&B legend Usher led this year’s Super Bowl Halftime show with an incredible performance along with fellow R&B hit-makers: Alicia Keys, Ludacris, H.E.R, Lil Jon,, and Jermaine Dupri. 

The Chiefs ended up finishing up with just 16 first quarter yards compared to San Fransico’s 125, but right when hope seemed to be dwindling the Chiefs made a comeback, when the 49ers’ made what seemed to be a critical error in the third quarter. Returner Darell Luter Jr. “fumbled a punt on San Fransico’s 35-yard line,” as The Salt Lake Tribune would describe it. The Chiefs ended up winning in overtime after tying the game on a resulting field goal that rounded off a reported 12-play, 69-yard-drive.
