The Chiefs are only the second team this century to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.

The NFL season has finally come to an end with the Kansas City chiefs on top after a 25-22 Super Bowl win in overtime. This would end up being the Chiefs third Super Bowl in five seasons.

The game was scoreless through the first quarter, but the second quarter started out with a Super Bowl record-setting kick. Rookie Jake Moody hit a 55-yard field goal.

The 49ers Christian McCaffery caught a touchdown for 21 yards from Januan Jennings, and the Chiefs scored with four minutes left in the first half, making the score 10-3 49ers.

Both teams fumbled in the first half as well.

The first half of the game was a defensive battle and the Niners came out on top, but in the end, that wasn’t enough.

Mahomes threw an interception to open the second half, but the Chiefs; defense stood strong and held San Francisco without points.

The Chiefs started the second half scoring off with a field goal, which broke the record set earlier in the game, The kick of 57 yards was no problem for Harrison Butker. Toward the end of the third quarter, the Chiefs finally scored a touchdown after the 49ers fumbled the ball on a punt return. Mahomes hit Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a 16-yard touchdown reception.

The 49ers responded with a touchdown of their own on the next drive when Jauan Jennings caught a pass from quarterback Brock Purdy for 10 yards. Rookie kicker Jake Moody missed the extra point, which came back to haunt them later in the game. The two teams traded field goals to end the fourth quarter to send the game to overtime.

The Niners scored a field goal, but with three seconds left in the game, Mecole Hardman would catch the Super Bowl-winning touchdown to end the game and bring the Lombardi Trophy back to Kansas City.
