The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. The Chiefs defeated the Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

This is the Chiefs’ third Super Bowl Championship as they moved to a 3-2 record in the Super Bowl. It is their second Super Bowl win in the past four seasons, as they also won at the conclusion of the 2019 NFL Season.

With the loss, the Eagles fell to 1-3 in the Super Bowl. They are one of nine teams to have suffered three Super Bowl losses.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named the Super Bowl MVP. This was his second Super Bowl MVP in his career.

He also became the first player since the 1999 season to win the regular season MVP and win the Super Bowl. Kurt Warner was the last to do it during the 1999 season with the St. Louis Rams when he won the MVP and then the Super Bowl with a 23-16 win over the Tennessee Titans at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, Georgia.

There was controversy near the end of the game. For the Eagles fans, they refuse to accept that James Bradberry held Juju Smith-Schuster on the play.

However, Bradberry admitted after the game that he held and did not believe he would get caught.

“It was holding,” Bradberry said following the game. “I tugged his jersey. I was hoping they would let it slide.”

This Bradberry penalty later set up the game-winning Harrison Butker field goal.

Mahomes went 21 of 27 for 182 yards. He threw three touchdown passes.

“He grew up in a locker room,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said of Mahomes. “He’s seen the greats, and he strives to be the greatest. When it’s time for the guys around them to raise their game, he helps them with that.”

Isiah Pacheco had 15 carries for 76 yards and one touchdown. Travis Kelce had six receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts went 27 of 38 for 304 yards. He had one touchdown pass.

Hurts led the team with 15 carries for 70 yards and three rushing touchdowns. DeVonta Smith had seven receptions for 100 yards.

“You either win or you learn,” Hurts said after the game. “It’s something that I know will motivate me.”

With his three rushing touchdowns in the game, Hurts tied a Super Bowl record. He tired Terrell Davis’s record when he had three rushing touchdowns in Super Bowl XXXII in a 31-24 win over the Green Bay Packers.

The Chiefs outscored the Eagles 24-11 in the second half. Pacheco scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown. Mahomes hit Kadarius Toney for a five-yard touchdown reception.

Mahomes also hit Skyy Moore for a four-yard touchdown reception. Butker made the game-winning 27-yard field goal with seconds remaining in the game.

Hurts scored a two-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. He also converted a two-point conversion.

Jake Elliott also made a 33-yard field goal in the third quarter.

The Eagles led 24-14 at halftime. Hurts scored on a one-yard rushing touchdown. Hurts also scored on a four-yard rushing touchdown.

Hurts hit A.J. Brown for a 45-yard touchdown reception. Elliott also made a 35-yard field goal.

Mahomes hit Kelce for an 18-yard touchdown reception to open up the Chiefs scoring in the first half. Hurts rushed for a five-yard loss before fumbling the ball.

Nick Bolton then scooped up the football and returned it for a 36-yard fumble return for a touchdown.
