Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his team to a 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV with a 13-play, 75-yard drive that ended in a three-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman. Despite being behind by 10 points in the first half, Mahomes was able to guide his team to victory, demonstrating his ability to perform under pressure.
This was Mahomes’ third Super Bowl win with the Chiefs, and the second time against the 49ers. Shortly after scoring the winning touchdown, he was named MVP of the game for the third time. Mahomes finished with an impressive passing performance, completing 34 out of 46 passes for 333 yards, two touchdowns and an interception on the first drive of the second half.
But it wasn’t just his passing that made Mahomes stand out in this game – he also made plays with his legs. He ran eight yards to convert a crucial fourth down and scored another 19 yards on a third down conversion. By the end of the night, Mahomes had amassed a team-high 66 rushing yards. His combined performance proved too much for San Francisco’s defense to handle.
Looking ahead to next season, it seems likely that Patrick Mahomes will have another chance at winning another Super Bowl ring as he seeks to become the first quarterback ever to win four straight titles. With his talent and skill set, there is no doubt that he will continue to be one of NFL’s top players in years to come.
