Kansas City Chiefs win Super Bowl LIV

February 4, 2020

The Kansas City Chiefs won their second Super Bowl in franchise history on Sunday. In Super Bowl LIV, the Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami, Florida. This was the second Super Bowl victory for the Chiefs in franchise history. They previous beat the Minnesota Vikings 23-7 in Super Bowl IV in New Orleans on January 11, 1970.

The primary star for the Chiefs on Sunday was quarterback Patrick Mahomes of Tyler, Texas, who was the game’s most valuable player. Mahomes completed 26 of 42 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns. He also had nine rushes for 29 yards and one touchdown.

Tyreek Hill of Lauderhill, Florida reached the century mark in receiving yards and Damien Williams of San Diego, California reached the century mark in rushing yards. Hill had nine catches for 105 yards and Williams had 17 rushes for 104 yards and a touchdown.

The 49ers were up 20-10 after three quarters. Then the Chiefs scored three consecutive touchdowns. Tight end Travis Kelce of Westlake, Ohio had a one yard touchdown catch, Williams had a five yard touchdown catch and then a 38 yard rush into the end zone with 1:12 left on the clock.

Another reason why the Kansas City are Super Bowl champions is because they were able to contain 49ers running back Raheem Mostert. After having 220 yards rushing and four touchdowns against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship two weeks ago, Mostert only had 58 rushing yards in the Super Bowl.

The Chiefs became the first team to win the Super Bowl after trailing by 10 or more points in three postseason games. Kansas City was down 24-0 to the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional Playoff before winning 51-31 and then was down 17-7 to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship before winning 35-24.
