KANSAS CITY WINS SUPER BOWL LVIII IN OVERTIME OVER 49ERS
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes overtime drive led to a Super Bowl LVIII win over the San Francisco 49ers, 25-22, last night in Las Vegas.
Mahomes found Mecole Hardman for a three-yard touchdown pass to win the game.
Quarterback Brock Purdy and the 49ers’ offense got the ball first in overtime, and despite getting it all the way down to the Kansas City nine-yard line, rookie kicker Jake Moody kicked a field goal to make it a 22-19.
But the Chiefs still had their chance to win the game with a touchdown, and Mahomes magic showed its face once more on the biggest stage.
The 13-play drive saw Mahomes use his legs quite a bunch, including on fourth-and-1 when he had a designed run to keep the drive going. He also got the Chiefs into the red zone when he scrambled for 19 yards. Three plays later, Hardman was wide open to let the red and yellow confetti fall from the rafters.
Mahomes finished the game with 333 yards on 34-for-46 through the air with two touchdowns and one interception, while rushing for a team-high 66 yards on nine carries.
Travis Kelce may have had just one catch for one yard in the first half, but he finished Mahomes’ top target with nine catches on 93 yards, while Hardman had 57 yards on three catches, including a 52-yarder earlier in the game.
