Written by Site Hub on February 12, 2024
The Kansas City Chiefs, led by Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and coach Andy Reid, clinched their second consecutive Super Bowl title, setting their sights on a three-peat. Mahomes’ pivotal 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman in overtime secured a 25-22 victory over the San Francisco 49ers, marking the Chiefs as the NFL’s ninth team to win back-to-back Super Bowls. This win adds to the Chiefs’ third championship in five years, elevating them among the league’s elite franchises.
The Super Bowl in Las Vegas, characterized by its sloppiness and a dull start, came to life in the final quarter and overtime, becoming the second of 58 Super Bowls to end in a tie in regulation. Mahomes, awarded his third Super Bowl MVP, joins an elite group of quarterbacks with three Super Bowl wins. A few pivotal plays led to the Chiefs’ victory, including Mahomes’ critical runs and a decisive touchdown pass during overtime.
