To date, Super Bowl LIV was one of the most exciting Super Bowls as the Kansas City Chiefs had a major comeback in the fourth quarter to defeat the San Fransico 49ers 31-20.

Not only did they take the win, but this was also Kansas City’s first win in 50 years and their third Super Bowl championship—they won in 1962 and 1969.

Led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the youngest quarterback to win Superbowl MVP and a Super Bowl title at 24-years-old, by the fourth quarter, the Chiefs navigated the 49ers defensive pressure with Mahomes’ two long touchdown passes that led to their victory.

About the win, Mahomes said, “We never lost faith,” Mahomes said. “That’s the biggest thing. Everybody on this team, no one had their head down. We believed in each other.”

The Chiefs were also the first team in NFL history to win three games after trailing by 10-or-more points in a single postseason.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid scored his first Super Bowl Ring as head coach! “This is what it’s all about,” Reid said. “What a great team, great coaches. Appreciate every bit of it.”
