Patrick Mahomes goes back to back

Texas Tech legend and Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes does it again. Securing his third Super Bowl victory along with his third Super Bowl MVP award. 

Alongside Head Coach Andy Reid, Mahomes is now halfway to the historic achievement of legendary duo Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, who clinched six Super Bowl victories together over a two-decade span. The last team to win consecutive Super Bowls was the 2003-2004 Patriots.

The game started off slow, with the halftime commercials being the most interesting part of the game.

49ers’ kicker, Jake Moody, kicked off the scoring with the longest field goal in Super Bowl history at 55 yards. Followed by a 21-yard touchdown pass from wide receiver Jauan Jennings to running back Christian McCaffrey, making the score 10-0. 

With 43 seconds left in the half, Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker added a 28-yard field goal, bringing the score to 10-3. 

The third quarter saw Butker making history with a 57-yard field goal, the longest in Super Bowl history, narrowing the score to 10-6. The game continued to go back and forth with Butker contributing a 29-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.

The 49ers won the toss and elected to receive. This turned out to be a big mistake. After a 49ers field goal. Mahomes led the Chiefs down the field, connecting with receiver Mecole Hardman for a 3-yard touchdown.

This catch secured the Chiefs second straight Super Bowl.

At 28 years old, Mahomes joins an elite group of starting quarterbacks with three Super Bowl victories. Mahomes joins Tom Brady, Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw, and Troy Aikman. 

The Kansas City Chiefs denied the 49ers their sixth franchise Super Bowl win, while winning their third Super Bowl in the last five years.
