Patrick Mahomes leads Chiefs to late comeback win over 49ers in Super Bowl

A chilly, breezy night in South Florida ended with a spark as the Kansas City Chiefs came back from 10 points down late in the fourth quarter to win Super Bowl LIV 31-20 over the San Francisco 49ers. After seeing his offense somewhat limited for three quarters, Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes led Kansas City with two fourth-quarter touchdowns, including the go-ahead score, as Kansas City’s defense held San Francisco scoreless over the final 15 minutes. Damien Williams added a touchdown with 1:12 to play just for good measure, ensuring the victory for the AFC champions as they played in their first Super Bowl in 50 years.

2020 Super Bowl: Mahomes catches fire late, leads Chiefs to 31-20 comeback win by Alex Johnson NBC News

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes celebrates after throwing a touchdown in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday. Mahomes was the game’s MVP.

Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs’ otherworldly quarterback, overcame several mistakes to lead the Chiefs to a 31-20 comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers in the 54th Super Bowl.

It was the 222nd career victory for the Chiefs’ Andy Reid, who before Sunday had been the coach with the most wins without a championship in NFL history. The Chiefs hadn’t been back to the title game since they won the fourth Super Bowl 50 years ago, in January 1970.

Mahomes threw two costly interceptions and was off-target on numerous other pass attempts. But he exploited his astonishing athleticism to avoid the pass rush of the 49ers’ defense, which was ranked No. 1 in the league, to pick up 286 yards with two touchdowns on 26-of-42 passing at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
