The Kansas City Chiefs, led by their quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce, who is also known for being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, clinched another Super Bowl victory. They became the first NFL team to successfully defend the title in 19 years, beating the San Francisco 49ers 25:22 in a thrilling game that went into the second overtime in Super Bowl history.
The Chiefs managed to turn the tables on their opponents, as they did in their previous victories against the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers four years ago. This victory marked the third Super Bowl win in five years for Mahomes, Kelce, and coach Andy Reid, among others. The 49ers, however, missed out on their sixth triumph, a record still held by the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
