Chiefs defeat the 49ers 31-20 to claim first title in 50 years

Faced with another double-digit deficit, Patrick Mahomes simply exhaled Sunday and breathed life into another Kansas City comeback.

The dynamic quarterback led the Chiefs to three fourth-quarter touchdowns and a 31-20 victory over San Francisco in Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium.

Mahomes, who finished 26 for 42 for 286 yards and two touchdowns on the way to being named the Super Bowl MVP, hit running back Damien Williams for a five-yard touchdown with 2:44 remaining to put the Chiefs ahead.

The outcome marked Kansas City’s second Super Bowl title in franchise history. A Chiefs team hadn’t played for the NFL championship in 50 years.
