Through three quarters it was a defensive game between the Chiefs and 49ers. Then the offenses started to come alive, sending the game to overtime tied at 19-19.
It was the 49ers who jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the second quarter. They lost that lead in the third quarter, but took it back with a touchdown from Brock Purdy to Jauan Jennings to go up 16-13. But Jake Moody’s extra point was low and blocked to keep it a three-point game.
That allowed the Chiefs to tie it up with a field goal. The 49ers re-took the lead at 19-16 with under two minutes left, but the Chiefs again turned around and drove for a field goal to tie it up.
The 49ers drove first for a field goal to make it a 22-19 game. Then the Chiefs took over and drove all the way down the field for the touchdown to win 25-22.
The game winner was a three-yard pass from Patrick Mahomes to Mecole Hardman.
With the win, the Chiefs defend their Lombardi to go back-to-back. It was the Chiefs’ fourth Super Bowl win in franchise history and their third in five years.
The first in that run also was a come-from-behind win over ther 49ers.
This win breaks a three-way tie atop the AFC West in Super Bowl wins between the Chiefs, Raiders, and Broncos. The Chiefs hole sole possession of the most Lombardi trophies in the division.
It was also the Chiefs’ fifth win in five games at Allegiant Stadium, having never lost to the Raiders there since they moved to Las Vegas prior to the 2019 season,
