Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl LIV

Comeback kids defeat San Francisco 49ers 31-20

The Kansas City Chiefs have won Super Bowl LIV on Fox, defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-20. The big win required another comeback from Andy Reid’s team.

The 49ers drew first blood in the form of a Robbie Gould field goal. The Chiefs would answer with a Patrick Mahomes rushing touchdown. That’s where the first quarter ended.

A second-quarter San Francisco touchdown and a Kansas City field goal made the score 10-10 at halftime.

In the third quarter, Gould would add another field goal. His teammate Raheem Mostert adding a rushing touchdown, giving the 49ers a 20-10 lead into the fourth quarter.

They wouldn’t score again — but the Chiefs would.

Kansas City responded by way of a Mahomes touchdown pass to Travis Kelce with just over six minutes left to play. A few minutes later, Mahomes hit Damien Williams for the go-ahead touchdown.

Both Mahomes and 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finished with two interceptions. Mahomes was named MVP.

Mahomes finished 26-of-42 for 286 yards passing. He had 29 yards on the ground.

Chiefs running back Williams finished with 104 yards on 17 carries. Tyreek Hill was the team’s top wide receiver, catching 9 balls for 105 yards. Sammy Watkins added five catches for 98 yards, Kelce had 6 for 43 and that aforementioned touchdown.

For the ‘9ers, Garoppolo was 20-of-31 for 219 yards. Mostert finished with 58 yards on 12 attempts. Jimmie Ward stood out on defense with 11 tackles.

Super Bowl LIV took place in Miami, Fla., with the Chiefs representing the AFC and 49ers the NFC. San Fran had finished the regular season at 13-3, Kansas City was 12-4.

This was the first Super Bowl win for the Chiefs in 50 years. It was the first for Reid, who previously coached the Philadelphia Eagles.

With that whole pigskin thing now out of the way, the Season 3 premiere of Fox’s oddball singing competition “The Masked Singer” is all set to start. We’ll get ratings for both Nielsen behemoths on Monday.
