Super Bowl LVIII between the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs was a nail biter. While the first half was slow to start, it saw a bit of everything. From a dropped Chiefs pass to the longest filed goal in Super Bowl history made by K Harrison Butker and a 49ers double-pass trick play touchdown, the first half kept audiences on their toes, unsure where the game would go.

The Chiefs trailed by a halftime by a touchdown but later took their first lead in the third quarter as the defense only allowed three total yards on the 49ers' first three possessions in the second half. The Chiefs were able to neutralize tight end George Kittle and running back Christian McCaffrey. Kittle was later ruled with a shoulder injury, though he continued to play. The Chiefs made a huge play to recover a muffed punt late in the third at the 16-yard line to set-up the Chief's first touchdown of the game. The fourth-quarter saw both teams go back-and-forth and led to a tied score at the end of the fourth quarter, pushing for an overtime.

At overtime, the 49ers got first ball, but were unable to make a touchdown. The Chiefs came in and took over the overtime. Patrick Mahomes shown through as the Chiefs trailed behind by a field goal in OT. Mahomes connects with Mecole Hardman in the end zone on their "corndog" play to secure the Cheifs' back-to-back Super Bowl win. In the immediate on-field post-game interview, Mahomes was asked if this is now the start of a Chiefs dynasty and he said, "It's the start of one, but we're not done." The Chiefs became the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since Tom Brady led the New England Patriots to win in 2003 and 2004. The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers in OT 25-22 to become the Super Bowl LVIII champions, winning their third Super Bowl in five years.
