Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to a 25-22 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. Despite trailing by 10 points in the first half, Mahomes was able to guide the team to victory with his impressive performance under pressure.
The winning drive was a 13-play, 75-yard effort that culminated in a three-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman. This marked the third time Mahomes had led the Chiefs to a win in the Super Bowl, and it was also his second victory against the 49ers after falling behind by 10 points earlier in the game.
Mahomes’ impressive passing performance was not limited to just his touchdown pass. He finished the game with 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 to convert a crucial fourth down and a 19-yard run to convert a third down. By the end of the night, Mahomes had a team-high 66 rushing yards.
With this latest victory, Mahomes has cemented himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. Looking ahead, he will have another chance to add another ring to his collection when he takes on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV in February 2021.
