Super Bowl 2024: Chiefs beat 49ers in OT thriller on walk-off TD pass by Patrick Mahomes – Yahoo Sports

Date:

The Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions for a third time in the Patrick Mahomes era.

Mahomes found Mecole Hardman for a walk-off touchdown in overtime on Sunday to deliver a 25-22 defeat to the San Francisco 49ers in a thriller. The Super Bowl victory is the second straight for the Chiefs and their third in five seasons. It also marks their second win over the 49ers in the Super Bowl after beating San Francisco following the 2019 season.

Mahomes was stellar yet again, completing 34 of 46 passes for 333 yards with two touchdowns and one interception. He led the Chiefs on a game-tying drive at the end of regulation, then the game-winning drive in overtime. He converted two first downs with his feet in the extra session, including a run on fourth-and-1 to keep the Chiefs alive.

The effort earned Mahomes his third Super Bowl MVP trophy.
