Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl

The Kansas City Chiefs are celebrating their Super Bowl LVII victory and third championship in franchise history. Led by the incredible Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs fought off a 10-point halftime deficit to ultimately slay the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35.

The Eagles started off the game on fire, taking the first drive of the game 75 yards for a touchdown. However, the Chiefs quickly responded, with Mahomes driving the team down the field for their own score. 

Despite this, their next possession ended with a missed field goal from Harrison Butker and another long Eagles touchdown drive. It looked as though momentum was slipping away, yet the Chiefs defense came up huge when Nick Bolton returned Jalen Hurts’s fumble 36 yards for a touchdown, knotting the score at 14-14. Philadelphia still managed to get two more scores in before halftime to lead by 10. Additionally, Mahomes suffered an ankle injury near the end of the half, leaving some concerned.

The worries were soon put to rest when the third quarter began. Mahomes was in peak form and directed three straight touchdown drives that outscored the Eagles 21-3 at the halfway point of the fourth quarter. 

Kadarius Toney was also an integral part of this success, scoring one of the touchdowns during that drive and breaking a Super Bowl record with a 65-yard punt return that set K.C. up for another Mahomes to Skyy Moore goal-line touchdown.

Philadelphia still had fight left in them, however, as they tied the game at 35 with 5:15 left to play. That is when the Chiefs put together a time-consuming drive that included a bold 26-yard scramble by Mahomes, which set up the game-winning field goal from Butker.
