MAMI, FL – Trailing in the 4th quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points to capture Super Bowl LIV over the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20 on Sunday, February 2nd. It’s Kansas City’s second Super Bowl victory, the first for Chiefs head coach Andy Reid and Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes.
“We never lost faith, found a way to get it done late,” said quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
At the tender age 22 warm Mahomes becomes the youngest quarterback to ever win a Super Bowl and MVP. Despite throwing two second half interceptions, he finished strong going 26 of 42 for 286 yards. It has been fifty years since Kansas City last Super Bowl victory.
The Chiefs 21 point onslaught took little over five minutes.
San Francisco jumped out to a 20-10 lead in the third quarter.
With 2:44 left in Super Bowl LIV, Mahomes threw a 5-yard screen pass to Damien Williams for the go ahead score.
Red and yellow confetti fell down on Hard Rock Stadium, an incredible conclusion to the NFL’s 100th season.
