The Kansas City Chiefs are officially a dynasty after becoming back-to-back Super Bowl champions. The Chiefs defended their title after coming from behind in overtime to beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in Super Bowl 58 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The Niners took the lead in the overtime after kicking a 27-yard field goal. Mecole Hardman caught a three-yard pass from Patrick Mahomes for the game-winning touchdown. Mahomes was named Most Valuable Player for the third time in his career after finishing the game with 333 passing yards, two touchdowns and a pick.
Mahomes was 8-for-8 passing on the Chiefs overtime drive and twice had to use his legs to extend the drive. The first time came on a 4th and 1 from KC’s 34 yard line. With the game on the line, Mahomes kept the snap and ran to his right for eight yards. Later on 3rd and 1 from the San Francisco 32, he stepped up through the pass rush and weaved his way 19 yards down to the 13. Three plays later his pass to Hardman set off a celebration.

Mahomes joins Tom Brady and Joe Montana as the only players to win the Super Bowl MVP award at least three times.
The Chiefs are the first team in the NFL to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004. San Francisco has now lost each of its last three Super Bowl appearances.
