Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl for second year in a row
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers, capping off a thriller in Las Vegas that saw several lead changes in the second half before ending in just the second Super Bowl to go to overtime.
The Chiefs will bring home the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the second year in a row and the third time in five years after quarterback Patrick Mahomes rallied his team which had been dominated by San Francisco in the first half.
“What a game, right? It could have gone either way,” Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters. “I feel fortunate to have been on the positive side.”
The Chiefs’ win cemented coach Reid and Mahomes’ team as the NFL’s new dynasty.
“It’s a little bit surreal,” Reid said. “I get asked so many times, ‘Is it a dynasty?’ I don’t know what a dynasty is. You guys you have the thesaurus, you figure it out.”
Mahomes was named MVP.
