A Super Bowl winning drive that took 13 plays with Taylor Swift in attendance?

Baby just say yes.

The Kansas City Chiefs secured their second consecutive Super Bowl title on Sunday after scoring a touchdown in overtime that was the drive of the season for Patrick Mahomes and company. It took 13 plays, seven minutes and 19 seconds for the Chiefs to get into the end zone, their longest drive of the day, and it was capped off by Mecole Hardman’s touchdown.

There were several key moments on the drive, including plays where it looked like the San Francisco 49ers may come out on top. Here is everything that happened on the championship-winning drive for the Chiefs:

The Chiefs run “Tom and Jerry,” according to Mahomes, and the quarterback finds Mecole Hardman for the touchdown to win the Super Bowl.

“Tom and Jerry is the name of the play. We can guess who’s who,” Mahomes said after the game. “But the same motion, though. the same motion as we scored ‘corndog,’ and we scored a couple plays last year. So we saved it for the right moment.”

Andy Reid added about the play: “That was ‘corndog.’ This was ‘corndog’ with a little mustard and ketchup.”
