Mahomes, was named Super Bowl MVP for the second time just days after collecting his second league MVP award. Mahomes was magnificent, despite aggravating his high ankle sprain late in the first half. He never missed a snap while leading three consecutive second-half touchdown drives after his team trailed 24-14 at intermission. He completed 21 of 27 passes for 182 yards and three scores and also ran for 44 yards, much of that on his bad wheel. Now Mahomes, 27, surpassed Tom Brady as the youngest QB to start three Super Bowls, might just be able to begin setting his sights on some of the GOAT’s other records. But he was hardly the only story in one of Super Sunday’s more remarkable matchups.
Kansas City became the 10th franchise to win the Super Bowl at least three times. The Chiefs have prevailed twice under CEO and co-owner Clark Hunt, whose father, Lamar, founded the AFL in 1960 and was the team’s original owner when the franchise was born as the Dallas Texans. The Chiefs’ first Super Bowl win came under Lamar Hunt following the 1969 season, but it took 50 years before their second.
