The Kansas City Chiefs are once again Super Bowl champions.

The Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35, in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday (February 12) night. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was named Super Bowl MVP for the second time in his career, threw for 182 yards and three touchdowns on 21 of 27 passing, while also recording 44 yards on six rushing attempts, despite appearing to re-injure his late in the second quarter.

Kansas City outscored Philadelphia, 24-11, in the second half, which included 17 points in the fourth quarter and scoring on each possession of the final two quarters. The Chiefs' final score came on a 27-yard field goal by Harrison Butker, which was setup by a controversial holding call on what would have been a forced fourth down by the Eagles defense with 1:54 remaining.

Instead, Kansas City forced Philadelphia to use its final timeout before running down he clock prior to Butker's successful attempt.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts broke late former Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair's previous Super Bowl record for most rushing yards by a quarterback (64), while also becoming the first player to record two rushing touchdowns and a passing touchdown in Super Bowl history. Hurts finished Sunday's game with 304 yards and one touchdown on 27 of 38 passing, as well as 70 yards and three touchdowns on 15 rushing attempts.

The Chiefs have now won three Super Bowls in franchise history, which included winning Super Bowl LIV in February 2020.
