Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes led a 13-play, 75-yard drive in overtime that ended with a three-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman. This victory lifted the Chiefs to a 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers, marking his third Super Bowl victory. Despite falling behind by 10 points in the first half, Mahomes demonstrated his ability to perform under pressure and guided the team to victory.
Mahomes was named the MVP of the Super Bowl for the third time shortly after his pass to Hardman. He finished the game with 34-of-46 for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception on the first drive of the second half. In addition to his passing performance, Mahomes made plays with his legs, including an eight-yard run to convert a crucial fourth down and a 19-yard run to convert a third down. By the end of the night, Mahomes had a team-high 66 rushing yards.
Looking ahead, Mahomes has a chance to become the first quarterback to win three straight Super Bowls in the 2024 season. With his track record and skill set, it seems unlikely that anyone would bet against him achieving this historic feat.
