For the first time since 1969, the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions. Andy Reid wins his elusive first Super Bowl title in dramatic fashion as his club trailed by 10 points heading into the fourth quarter. It was at that point where Patrick Mahomes and the K.C. offense went on a 21-0 run to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.
Mahomes, who was named Super Bowl MVP, wasn't sharp for most of this game but was clutch when it counted. On the Chiefs go-ahead touchdown drive to go up 24-20, Mahomes completed all five of his passes for 60 yards and that go-ahead score, which was a short 5-yard pass to Damien Williams. Mahomes finished the game completing 26 of his 42 passes for 286 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. Williams, meanwhile, totaled 133 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns.
Defensively, Chris Jones was a force up the middle of the defense. He swatted a number of passes by Jimmy Garoppolo to the ground and even helped force his first interception in the first half. Frank Clark also had a key sack late in the fourth quarter that essentially clinched the win for Kansas City.
The Chiefs used an epic fourth-quarter comeback to win their first Super Bowl title in 50 years, and there's a lot to go over.
