Kansas City Chiefs wins First Super Bowl in Fifty Years.

On the fiftieth anniversary of their first Super Bowl win, the Kansas City Chiefs came out strong against the San Francisco 49ers to win their second Super Bowl. In what will seem like a never-ending party in Kansas City also seemed like an eternity waiting in this Super Bowl, as it was a showdown of the highest-rated offense (Chiefs) and defense (49ers), after the smoke cleared and pyrotechnics welcomed in the AFC and NFC champions into the world’s biggest stage, it was time to get down to business.

With a game starting right out the gate in the first quarter, 49ers first to score with a 26-yard field goal and the Chiefs took the lead with a rushing touchdown by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, league MVP of last year and Super Bowl MVP of this year. The Chiefs would take a field goal making it 10-3 and the 49ers would light up the scoreboard with their first TD of the game. 

The first half would expire with a 10-10 tie, second half rolls in and it gets even crazier with touchdowns being scored left and right, the 49ers retook the lead with a rushing TD by RB Raheem Mostert after an interception by LB Fred Warner.

It was in the fourth, and the 49ers were up 20-10. The Chiefs would catch up with a short pass to TE Travis Kelce making it a three point game. Kansas City would end up putting it all on the line with a short pass to Damien Williams, the Chiefs would take the lead with a 24-20 lead. The 49ers would have the chance to retake the lead with a 70-yard shotgun pass from QB Jimmy Garappolo to TE George Kittle, however an OPI (Offensive Pass Interference) penalty on Kittle, most people are calling it controversial. After that, the 49ers accidentally created a delay of game penalty in the game on top of a loss of down due to a sack by DE Frank Clark.

The Chiefs would score once again to make the final score of 31-20, after that the 49ers continued to spiral as they gave a last effort for the title as Kendall Fuller would intercept the final ball leading up to the Chiefs offense kneeing the ball, just like a Madden NFL game, and finally winning their first Super Bowl in 50 years.

Kansas City would win their second Super Bowl in their franchise’s history, Pat Mahomes would become the youngest Super Bowl MVP in history and the youngest to win the Super Bowl after claiming league MVP, and head coach Andy Reid would win his first Super Bowl title in his career after falling short of an appearance multiple times and falling short of the title back in 2004 against the defending Super Bowl Champion, New England Patriots. 

{Patriots went back-to-back in Super Bowls with XXXVIII (2003) and XXXIX (2004)} The Chiefs ended the night in a flash of red and yellow confetti raining down from the top of Hard Rock Stadium and claimed immortality at last.
