The Kansas City Chiefs are back-to-back Super Bowl champions. The Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime in Super Bowl 58 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Mecole Hardman Jr. caught the game-winning three-yard TD pass from Patrick Mahomes in OT to win the game.
It’s the second straight season and the third time in the last five years that the Chiefs have won the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs struggled early and trailed at halftime 10-3, but battled back in the second half and took the game to overtime with a 19-19 tie in regulation. The 49ers got a field goal early in overtime but the Chiefs got a possession under new overtime rules and Mahomes ran for two key first downs in the drive before throwing the game-winning pass to Hardman.
Mahomes was named Most Valuable Player for the third time in his career after finishing the game with 333 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. The Chiefs are the first team in the NFL to win back to back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004. San Francisco has now lost each of its last three Super Bowl appearances.
A parade and celebration are planned Wednesday morning at 11 in Kansas City.
