The Chiefs clinched a 25-22 victory over the 49ers in Super Bowl LVI, thanks to Patrick Mahomes’ leadership. Despite trailing by 10 points in the first half, Mahomes led a 13-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a three-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman. This marked the third time Mahomes had guided the Chiefs to a win in the Super Bowl, and it was his second victory against the 49ers.
Mahomes’ impressive performance earned him his third MVP award for the Super Bowl. He finished the game with an outstanding passing record of 34-of-46 for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception on the first drive of the second half. In addition to his passing prowess, Mahomes also made plays with his legs, including an eight-yard run that converted a crucial fourth down and a 19-yard run that converted a third down. By game’s end, Mahomes had amassed a team-high 66 rushing yards.
With his track record and skill set, it is likely that Mahomes will continue to dominate in future Super Bowls. If he can achieve this historic feat of winning three straight Super Bowls in the 2024 season, he will undoubtedly go down as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history.
