Chiefs win first Super Bowl in 50 years

MIAMI - Despite trailing by 10 points or more for a third time this postseason, the Kansas City Chiefs again came back.

The Chiefs are Super Bowl LIV Champions after a 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers. It is the first Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs in 50 years, and it is the first of head coach Andy Reid's career.

Patrick Mahomes earned Super Bowl MVP honors and overcame two interceptions. Mahomes scored three total touchdowns on the night and threw for 286 yards.

The Chiefs jumped out to a hot start and led 10-3 during the second quarter. However, the 49ers rattled off 17 straight points and dominated the third quarter to take a 20-10 lead.

Then, on 3rd and 15 midway through the 4th quarter, Mahomes found his magic. Mahomes fired deep to Tyreek Hill for 44 yards. Four plays later, Mahomes connected with Travis Kelce for a touchdown to make it 20-17 with 6:13 to go.

The Chiefs rode that momentum on the next drive as Mahomes dumped it off to Damien Williams for a touchdown giving Kansas City a 24-20 lead with 2:44 remaining.

The Chiefs forced a turnover on downs, and Williams put the game away with a touchdown run.
