The Kansas City Chiefs have defeated the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 58 after Patrick Mahomes’ overtime TD pass to Mecole Hardman.
The Kansas City Chiefs have won Super Bowl 58, defeating the San Francisco 49ers 25-22.
It was a competitive game throughout. The Chiefs and 49ers both struggled from an offensive standpoint early. The field goal kickers ended up stealing the show early in the contest. 49ers kicker Jake Moody set a new Super Bowl record for the longest field goal at 55 yards, but that was later surpassed by Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker who made a 57-yard attempt.
The offenses displayed signs of life toward the end of the fourth quarter, and both made deep runs into their opponent’s territory. Both the 49ers and Chiefs ultimately turned to their field goal kickers once again, however, and the game headed to overtime with the score tied at 19 apiece.
Following a 49ers field goal in overtime, Patrick Mahomes found Mecole Hardman in the red zone for the game-winning touchdown.
Chiefs’ dynasty cannot be denied
If there were any critics about the Chiefs’ dynasty prior to Sunday, there’s no denying the facts now. Regardless of whether you love the Chiefs or can’t stand them, this current Kansas City group has established a dynasty.
Mahomes was interviewed after the dramatic victory on CBS, via ClutchPoints.
“It means a ton,” Mahomes said. “Just the adversity we dealt with this year… the guys never faltered. I just gotta give God the glory. He challenged us to make us better. And I’m proud of my guys. This is awesome, it’s legendary.”
So what about the Chiefs’ dynasty?
“Yeah,” Mahomes responded when asked if it is a dynasty following this win. “It’s the start of one. We’re not done. I know we’re going to celebrate tonight… But we’re not done. We’ve got a young team, we’re gonna keep this thing going.”
