Back-To-Back: Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl 58

Back-To-Back%3A+Kansas+City+Chiefs+Win+Super+Bowl+58

Patrick Mahomes left a confetti-covered Allegiant Stadium as a back-to-back Super Bowl champion, cementing his status as a Hall of Famer First Ballot at just 28 years old. The Kansas City Chiefs are the first team to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the 2003-2004 New England Patriots, led by none other than 7-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady.
Mahomes, along with TE Travis Kelce and head coach Andy Reid, have now won 3 Super Bowls in the last 5 years, and are already looking forward to completing the first three-peat in NFL history. But at the end of the first half, things did not seem as clear, with the San Francisco 49ers led by second-year QB Brock Purdy leading 10-3. But Mahomes made yet another comeback just like his first Super Bowl against the 49ers just 5 years ago. Trailing 20-10 until the final minutes of the game, a then 24-year-old Mahomes made a clutch performance to carry the Chiefs to their second championship in franchise history.
A 2-yard pass to WR Mecole Hardman sealed Super Bowl 58 in OT, ending in a score of 25-22 to seal the franchise’s fourth Super Bowl. While the last five years have now been coined as the new Chiefs dynasty, it’s noteworthy that the 49ers both performed well and committed critical mistakes that cost their potential sixth Super Bowl — Christian McCafferey’s fumble in the first quarter, a punt return fumble in the second half, and a mistake by head coach Kyle Shanahan in not choosing to kick off with the new overtime rule. Ultimately, the heartbreaking loss will make the 49ers a stronger team, and for the wonder boy Brock Purdy, his career is quite literally only getting started.
