The Kansas City Chiefs became back-to-back Super Bowl champions after beating the San Francisco 49ers with a score of 25-22 at Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11 in overtime. The Chiefs become the first team in 19 seasons to repeat as Super Bowl champions.
The Chiefs’ kicker Harrison Butker tied up the game with less than 10 seconds on the clock during regulation, with the 49ers getting the ball first in overtime. Jake Moody hit a 27-yard field goal in OT to give the Niners a 22-19 lead, but Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes drove the Chiefs down the field, and with 13 seconds left in overtime, connecting with receiver Mecole Hardman on a one-yard touchdown pass to give the Chiefs the victory, and their third Super Bowl in the past five seasons.
Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes took home his third career Super Bowl MVP award, becoming only the third player in NFL history to do so (alongside retired quarterbacks Tom Brady and Joe Montana).
