Hail to the Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are on top of the football world, winning the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in 50 years as they beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV in Miami. As they had throughout the postseason, the Chiefs had to rally from a ten-point deficit. While each of their wins over the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans saw their comeback staged in the first half, the Chiefs need to rally in the fourth quarter on the NFL’s biggest stage. The Chiefs took the lead early, as they were up 10-3 in the second quarter. However, San Francisco scored the game’s next 17 points and held a 20-10 lead with under ten minutes to play. It was at this time where Patrick Mahomes, who had struggled all game, finally found his grove, taking Kansas City going 83 yards in ten plays, with Travis Kelce making the touchdown catch. After the Niners went three and out, the Chiefs got the ball back and took the lead on a five-yard run by Damien Williams, who later added a second score to ice the game, as the Chiefs scored three touchdowns in five minutes to win the game 31-20.
