Late surge helps Chiefs win first Super Bowl in 50-years

The wait is over for the Kansas City Chiefs fans. They had to wait 50-years before many of them were able to call themselves Super Bowl Champions.

The Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, on Sunday night in Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. There were 62,417 fans in attendance.

Kansas City has won their last two Super Bowl appearances, while San Francisco has lost their last two. The Chiefs also win the Big Game in 1970.

The 49ers are the latest team to lose the game after leading in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately for Kyle Shanahan, he has been apart of two of those losses.

He was also part of the Atlanta Falcons staff, as their offensive coordinator, who led the New England Patriots after they were down 28-3 in the third quarter, before losing in overtime 34-28.

According to ESPN’s Stats & Information, during Shanahan two Super Bowl appearances, they were outscored 46-0, including overtime after the 10-minute mark in the fourth quarter.

The Chiefs went on a roll of three straight touchdowns in the final six minutes and 13 seconds.

Also, with this win, Andy Reid finally gets a Super Bowl win on his resume. Reid — who previously won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers — won his first Super Bowl after his 222nd win.

He was the winningest head coach without a Super Bowl win, but that has changed now. And all he wanted after the win was the biggest cheeseburger available to him.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named the game’s MVP. He is the youngest Super Bowl MVP in NFL history.

This win has sealed his Hall of Fame future. It also stopped the critics, who said that he could never win the Big Game.

Mahomes II went 26 of 42 for 286 yards. He threw two touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Damien Williams had 17 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown. Tyreek Hill also had nine receptions for 105 yards.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went 20 of 31 for 219 yards. He threw one touchdown pass and two interceptions.

Raheem Mostert had 12 carries for 58 yards and one touchdown. Kendrick Bourne had two receptions for 42 yards.

The Chiefs outscored the 49ers, 21-10, in the second half. Williams scored on a 38-yard rushing touchdown. Mahomes II also hit Williams for a five-yard touchdown reception.

Mahomes II also hit Travis Kelce for a one-yard touchdown reception.

49ers’ Mostert scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown. Robbie Gould also made a 42-yard field goal.

The game was tied at 10 all at halftime. Kansas City’s Mahomes II scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown. Harrison Butker also made a 31-yard field goal.
