Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl LVII by defeating Philadelphia Eagles

Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl LVII by defeating Philadelphia Eagles

The Chiefs were inspired by a brilliant second half performance from Patrick Mahomes as they came from behind to win the Super Bowl.

Charlie Kelly, Dennis Reynolds, Mac, the Phillie Phanatic, the whole gang will be gutted, as Patrick Mahomes inspired an amazing second-half comeback for the Kansas City Chiefs, as they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 to win Super Bowl LVII.

The Chiefs won their second Super Bowl in four years thanks to Mahomes, despite the fact that the quarterback picked up a massive ankle injury.

It looked for a long time that the Eagles were going to win only their second Super Bowl, having won in 2017, having got off to a brilliant start.

They also led by 10 points at the end of the first half, which was when their opposing QB looked to be in trouble, having rolled his foot.

However, whilst most eyes were on Rihanna's amazing halftime show, the KC medial team clearly did some very good work on the 27-year-old.

He and Andy Reid got everything right following the break and the Chiefs scored with every position in the second half to complete an unreal comeback in what was a thrilling encounter.

Eagles QB Hurts opened the scoring in the first quarter when he ran the ball in from just a yard out, just moments after Kenneth Gainwell thought he'd got in, only to see that he'd been inches short of the line.

Travis Kelce levelled things up not long after, with Mahomes finding him with a touchdown pass for the 14th time in the play-offs.

KC kicker Harrison Butker had the next chance to put some points on the board for his team, but hit the post from 42 yards, only making a lovely sound with his kick rather than the goal.

Hurts made the AFC side pay with the first play of the second quarter, finding AJ Brown with a 45-yard pass, with Brown diving in to make it 14-7.

However, the Eagles signal caller blotted his performance when his fumble was picked up by Nick Bolton, who ran in a touchdown from 36 yards.

The 24-year-old wasn't finished though and soon ran in again, following a penalty from the Chiefs, to put his side back ahead.

Mahomes then rolled his ankle just before the teams headed in for halftime, with Jake Elliott slotting home a field goal to give the Eagles a 10 point lead before Rihanna's show.

The Chiefs quarterback first charge up the field in the second half put his side in touching distance and Isiah Pacheco closed the gap soon after.

Elliott kicked for goal again, from 32 yards out, before Mahomes found Kadarius Toney in the end zone from five yards, to give the Chiefs the lead.

Skyy Moore was the latest player to score a touchdown, once again being found by the 2019 Super Bowl MVP, as the Vince Lombardi Trophy looked to be going back to Kansas.

Hurts wasn't finished though, running in his third shorts distance TD of the game and then adding the extra two points himself, after beating a couple of tackles, to level things up at 35-35.

Butker ended the scoring though, scoring a field game with just eight seconds left on the clock, to earn Mahomes and the Chiefs the win.
