With the game and season on the line, the Kansas City Chiefs, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes dug deep to pull off a come-from-behind win and ending any hopes the San Francisco 49ers had of being the new Super Bowl LIV champs.

Down by 10 in the 4th quarter, the 2019 league MVP found tight end Travis Kelce for 7 and then running back Damien Williams put the nail in the coffin to seal the game with a 38 yard gallop down the sideline for a td. The Niners defense played flawless but seemed to run out of steam in the closing minutes giving coach Andy Reid his first Super Bowl win and the franchise its first in 50 years. Patrick Mahomes 24, became the youngest Super Bowl MVP.
