How About Those Chiefs!!

Super Bowl 54 took place in beautiful Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. It was watched by 102 million people which made it the 10th most-watched Super Bowl in NFL history. Those 102 million people were not disappointed. The Chiefs won 31-20 against the San Francisco 49ers and pulled off their 3rd comeback in this year’s playoffs alone. They came back down 10 going into the fourth quarter and ended up scoring 3 touchdowns in the quarter. The Chiefs had to come back down by 10 against the Tennessee Titans and more than 20 against the Houston Texans. The story of this postseason and more importantly this Super Bowl is the resilient duo of head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Head coach Andy Reid deserves a lot of credit. Before the win on Sunday, Reid had the most wins in history without a Super Bowl victory. Finally, after 21 years of being a head coach in the NFL, Reid finally won the big one and he deserved it. Patrick Mahomes, on the other hand, is only 24 and has already become the second-youngest player to win a Super Bowl, the youngest player to win Super Bowl MVP, 2018 NFL MVP, 2018 First team all-pro, 2018 Offensive player of the year, and 2x pro bowler. In only his third season Mahomes already has an incredible resume and is one of the most talented quarterbacks we have ever seen. Together, Reid and Mahomes are going to make a deadly duo for years to come. The Chiefs offense overall answered very strongly to a 49ers defense that had been suffocating them all evening. The 49ers held the Chiefs to only 156 yards in the first half and only 104 of them were passing yards. Going into the fourth quarter, the Niners defense had forced Mahomes into no passing touchdowns and 2 interceptions. It was looking like San Francisco’s defense was just too much to handle for Mahomes but that is when Mahomes turned it on. A lot of people including me thought the 49ers defense would bring them this victory but a lot of people, including me, underestimated how good 24-year-old Patrick Mahomes really is. And oh my, was I wrong. Patrick Mahomes is in another world in terms of talent and he is extremely clutch. The Chiefs have a rare talent at the most important position in sports, yes, but more importantly, they have an ultimate winner at that position and that is very unparalleled.
Overall, this year’s Super Bowl did not disappoint (especially the halftime show, thank God) and the best team truly won. With no controversy and no bad sportsmanship, this was just a game of great football and the better team won, and in my opinion that is the best kind of Super Bowl.
