With MVP Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs form a football dynasty – New York Amsterdam News

Yes, the Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LVII on Sunday. And yes, Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs quarterback, was the game’s MVP leading them to a 38-35 victory. The Chiefs can be declared a dynasty having played in three of the NFL’s past five Super Bowl’s going 2-1. They have hosted the last five AFC championship games at Arrowhead Stadium.

Down 24-14 at halftime, Mahomes brought his team back on four consecutive scores on all of the offense’s possessions in the second half, capped by a 26-yard game winning field goal by Harrison Butker—who had missed a 42-yarder in the first quarter—with 8 seconds left. A desperate failed Hail Mary by the Eagles ended the game, giving Mahomes his second Super Bowl win and second Super Bowl MVP.

“It feels amazing just to see the confetti,” said Butler as it flowed throughout State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. 

“Guys talked in the locker room [during halftime], and we just said, ‘Let’s leave it all out there. Leave it out there for 30 minutes and see what happens at the end of the day,’” said Mahomes. “I thought guys did that.” Guys did do that. Mahomes did that. The Chiefs did that.

“It took everybody to win the game,” said Mahomes, highlighting the efforts of his teammates and coaches, including head coach Andy Reid who coached the Eagles from 1999-2012 before moving on to Kansas City, offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy, himself deserving of a head coaching position, and  defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Mahomes was 21-27 for 182 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions. He wasn’t sacked despite the Eagles having 78 in 19 games going into the Super Bowl. Mahomes’ numbers were less than those of Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, who was spectacular in going 27-38 for 304 yards and one touchdown. Hurts had 70 yards rushing and tied former Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis’ (1998) record of three TDs touchdowns on the ground. His one turnover was a fumble in the second quarter that was returned 36-yards for a touchdown by Chiefs linebacker Nick Bolton, tying the game at 14-14.

“Zero sacks. Put it on an (expletive) tee-shirt. Now that would make a great souvenir, especially  or the members of Kansas City’s offensive line,” said Chiefs offensive tackle Orlando Brown. “We take a lot of pride up front, of being the source of energy.”

The entire Chiefs nation can take pride in once again being Super Bowl champions.
