Super Bowl LIV MVP, Patrick Mahomes.

In a back-and-forth game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, the Chiefs won Super Bowl LIV, 31-20. The game took place Sunday, Feb. 2 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL.

Prior to this season, the Chiefs had three rings, their last Super Bowl win in 1969. It was the first Super Bowl championship for coach Andy Reid, who started with the Chiefs in 2013, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who won Super Bowl MVP.

In a close game, the Chiefs were able to bring their score up in the fourth quarter. In the first, the Chiefs led the 49ers 7-3. At the half, the teams were tied at 10-10 in the second quarter and were behind by ten points in the third at 20-10. The Chiefs were able to pull ahead in the fourth quarter. With less than ten minutes left, Mahome passed to tight end Travis Kelce, leading to one touchdown, and then, with just over two minutes left, made another touchdown pass to running back Damien Williams. With 2:44 left on the clock, the score became 31-20, leading the Chiefs to victory.

After the game, Mahomes said at the trophy presentation, “It’s this team, we have heart. I mean, just from day one, coach pushes us to be the best team we can be, and we never give up. The leaders that we have on this team, they have that mindset that we’re never going to give up and we’re going to fight to the end. Thank you Kansas City.”

Besides the Chiefs’ comeback, the Super Bowl offered other highlights. Demi Lovato sang the National Anthem and Jennifer López and Shakira performed at halftime. The commercials were as entertaining as expected, offering multiple celebrity cameos: Tom Brady tackled the retirement rumors with a commercial for Hulu, teasing that he would be staying with the New England Patriots; Ellen DeGeneres promoted Alexa; Missy Elliot sang for Pepsi; Post Malone, Jimmy Fallon, and John Cena acted Michelob Ultra beer, and Lil Nas X dueled with Sam Elliott for Dorito.
