Patrick Mahomes Leads Kansas City Chiefs To Super Bowl Win Over San Fransisco 49ers
The Kansas City Chiefs played an impressive game and an especially memorable second half to come away with the win over the San Fransisco 49ers. This is the franchise’s first Super Bowl win in 50 years.
24-year-old Patrick Mahomes started the match strong, scoring the first touchdown of the game. This brought the score to 7-3. At halftime, the score was tied 10-10.
Mahomes had a rocky third quarter, throwing his second interception, which led to San Fransisco scoring and taking a 20-10 lead. At the beginning of the 4th quarter, Mahomes was sacked but turned things around with a 44-yard pass to #10 Tyreek Hill. Afterward, with a touchdown from #26 Damien Williams, the Chiefs led 20-17. Later, Williams scored again, making the game 30-20 (31-20 after the kick for the extra point was good). In total, the Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter.
The final score was 31-20.
The MVP of the game was, unsurprisingly, Patrick Mahomes. The quarterback completed 26-41 passes for 286 years, had two interceptions, and also had two touchdowns. At 24, Mahomes is the youngest player to ever win a Super Bowl MVP honor.
