Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his team to a 25-22 win over the 49ers in a thrilling overtime game. Mahomes orchestrated a 13-play, 75-yard drive that ended with a three-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Mecole Hardman. This touchdown sealed the victory for the Chiefs and showcased Mahomes’ talent under pressure.
Despite falling behind by 10 points in the first half, Mahomes was able to rally his team to secure the win. This was the third time Mahomes has guided the Chiefs to a Super Bowl win, and he was named the MVP for the third time shortly after the game ended. His performance included 34 completions on 46 attempts for 333 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception.
In addition to his passing game, Mahomes also made impressive plays with his legs, contributing a team-high 66 rushing yards. His ability to make big plays both in the air and on the ground proved too much for the 49ers defense to handle.
Looking ahead to the 2024 season, Mahomes will have the opportunity to become the first quarterback to win three straight Super Bowls. Given his track record and incredible skill set, it’s unlikely that many people would bet against him achieving this remarkable feat.
