The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LVII in a thrilling 38-35 game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Both high-powered offenses put on a show — and displayed quarterback star-power on both sides of the field — but it was ultimately MVP Patrick Mahomes who rallied the Chiefs to victory.
Mahomes now stands alone as the only player in NFL history to be named league MVP and Superbowl MVP in the same year.
The Chiefs also won the Super Bowl in 2020 and reached the title game in 2021. The three appearances in four years by the Chiefs have analysts calling it a dynasty, but Patrick Mahomes was quick to put that to rest saying “we’re not done yet so I’d rather you say it.”
Despite the tough loss for the Eagles, quarterback Jalen Hurts was brilliant, rushing for a Super Bowl quarterback record of three touchdowns and 70 rushing yards, another record.
Superbowl LVII was historic in many levels. It was the first featuring two black starting quarterbacks – Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles.
It was also the first featuring two brothers on opposing teams with Jason Kelce of the Eagles going against Travis Kelce of the Chiefs. The two Harbaugh brothers have coached against each other in a Superbowl before.
Lastly, it was the first time an NFL coach, Chiefs’ Andy Reid, went against hos former team, Philadelphia Eagles in a Superbowl.
It was the biggest day in US sports, and also a memorable experience for music fans. Rihanna dazzled in a 13-minute performance of her greatest hits, owning the stage and skipping the typical guest appearances.
Rihanna ended her performance with her mega-hit “Diamonds in the sky” while being hoisted into the “sky”. She also broke the internet with speculation that she’s pregnant with her second child.
