The Kansas City Chiefs have won their third Super Bowl in five years after a thrilling last-second touchdown in overtime. This marks the beginning of a dynasty in Kansas City after becoming the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls in 20 years, with the Tom Brady-led Patriots being the last team to accomplish this uncommon achievement. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes showed immense emotion immediately following the game-winner collapsing on the sidelines.

Mahomes threw the game-winning pass to receiver Mecole Hardman, who started the 2023 season with the New York Jets before coming back to the Chiefs at the trade deadline. With the entire world seemingly against them, Kansas City was able to pull off the victory after trailing the majority of the game.

Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Recap
The quarterback finished the game with 333 passing yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy finished with 255 passing yards and a touchdown in the heartbreaking loss. Mahomes also walks away with his third Super Bowl MVP award, tying former 49ers quarterback Joe Montana for the second-most to win the award.
Mahomes made it known to the rest of the league that Kansas City is never an underdog in the Lombardi Trophy ceremony. He was also asked by reporters about the comparisons to one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game, Tom Brady. The Chiefs quarterback still says that Brady is still the greatest of all time since he lost to Brady in the Super Bowl when he was with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Even though the quarterback says that he still is not the best, many fans, especially in Kansas City, think that Mahomes is the new “GOAT.”
What The Future Holds
The Chiefs secured their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history, only becoming the seventh team to do so. There will be many questions surrounding the franchise this season, including what the future holds for tight end Travis Kelce and head coach Andy Reid, and if the team will make a big splash in the offseason with Mahomes reportedly restructuring his contract this offseason.
