Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs shine bright like a diamond in Arizona to win an unforgetable Super Bowl

Super Bowl LVII will forever be remembered as one of the greatest of all time, the Kansas City Chiefs have lifted their third Vince Lombardi Trophy and Patrick Mahomes has etched his name in gold letters in NFL history by leading his team to an agonizing 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

But beyond the numbers, the story is one of a leader who despite having an injured right ankle before the game and taking another seemingly fatal hit in the second quarter from linebacker T.J. Edwards. After that play, Philadelphia went in front 24-14 but Mahomes came out to play the second half at the level of the player who won the regular season MVP in NFL Honors.

Patrick Mahomes cemented himself as an NFL legend

The game's illustrious moment was not any of his touchdown passes, instead it was the 26-yard carry on the final drive that set the scene so that after a holding, Kansas City ran out the clock and with a 27-yard field goal by Harrison Butker came away with the thrilling win.

The Chiefs thus became the first team to win two Super Bowls in which they had been losing by at least 10 wins; Kansas City also won under those conditions against the San Francisco 49ers in the LIV edition.

Mahomes and Hurts' big games

Statistically, Mahomes completed 21 of 27 passes for 182 yards with three touchdown tosses, no interceptions and six carries for 44 yards.

For the losing side, Jalen Hurts had a great game, completing 27 of 38 passes for 304 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions, in addition to 15 carries for 70 yards and a record three visits to the end zone by that route.

Chiefs, NFL's new dynasty

Kansas City has then begun to establish itself as the NFL's new dynasty, winning two of the last four Super Bowls, reaching three of them and becoming the first team to play five consecutive AFC Championship Games at home.
