Super Bowl LVII will be an historic moment, featuring two Black quarterbacks facing off on the biggest stage. Additionally, this marks the first time brothers Travis and Jason Kelce will play against one another in a major championship game.
Check out the highlights of this thrilling shootout as the Chiefs come out victorious against Philadelphia. See below for all the action as it unfolds!
Patrick Mahomes overcame a painful high ankle sprain that kept him out of the Divisional Round against the Jacksonville Jaguars to lead Kansas City Chiefs to their second Super Bowl victory in three years, becoming the first African-American quarterback in NFL history to win a Super Bowl. On his way to becoming the first African-American quarterback ever to win a Super Bowl, Mahomes completed 27 passes without being sacked and scored two touchdowns on his way to becoming the first African-American quarterback ever to do so.
He was a major factor in the Chiefs' dominance over the Eagles in the second half, helping them claim their first Super Bowl in four years despite an early 10 point deficit. Mahomes led a 10-play, 75-yard drive that ended with an Isiah Pacheco touchdown to cut Philadelphia's lead to three points with 1:45 left in the third quarter.
On this drive, Mahomes connected with Travis Kelce over the heads of defenders for an 18-yard score to give Kansas City its first lead of the game at 14-10. He then led them on another long scoring drive - this time for a short pass to Kadarius Toney that cut Philadelphia's lead to 27-21 with about 12 minutes remaining in regulation.
Mahomes made the most of a short field in the fourth quarter that featured several touchbacks. He completed short tosses to Moore for a touchdown; Toney scored his first touchdown with around 12 minutes remaining; and Pascal gained two yards for another score.
Mahomes not only completed his impressive comeback with a touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins, his brother, with 2:55 remaining in the fourth quarter to secure an incredible 38-35 victory for Kansas City over Philadelphia Eagles. This triumph is one that both Mahomes and his teammates earned; congratulations to both!
An epic Super Bowl week ended on a high note for both the Eagles and Chiefs with an exciting loss. After being one of the NFL's top defenses this season, they were outclassed by a retooled Chiefs offense that kept Mahomes clean while giving him time to complete passes. It was an evenly-played contest that showcased both teams' talents.
Jalen Hurts made history on Sunday by becoming one of the first Black quarterbacks to start in a Super Bowl. He led his Kansas City Chiefs team to an historic 38-35 victory against Philadelphia Eagles in the 57th Super Bowl.
The 24 year-old quarterback is one of the most promising young stars in the NFL. His speed, elusiveness and knack for breaking through blockers make him a threat both on the ground and in the air.
He had an impressive performance against the Eagles, completing 23 of 35 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns. Additionally, he ran for another score on two carries.
However, it was the Chiefs' defense that came through big in the second quarter. On third-and-1 from their 47 yard line, Isaac Seumalo jumped early and forced a fumble that was recovered by Nick Bolton for an impressive 36-yard touchdown return.
This was the crucial play of the game. It gave the Chiefs a chance to tie the score and temporarily change momentum in a game they had lost.
Two minutes later, Mahomes was sacked on a third-and-goal at the Philadelphia 4 and had to punt. On his next drive however, Mahomes hit Tyreek Hill for a 69-yard touchdown.
Even with that touchdown, the Chiefs remained down 35-24. On the following drive, Mahomes aggravated an ankle injury that had him in intense discomfort.
It was only the start of Kansas City Chiefs' comeback. They scored a touchdown and field goal in the final 15 minutes to claim their victory and secure an exciting comeback victory.
Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs to a thrilling come-from-behind victory, but it was Hurts who threw some of the most crucial passes of the day. The second-year signal caller threw his first career touchdown pass and also made an important interception for a pivotal defensive stop.
ESPN analyst Chris Berman declared the first half of the Super Bowl an historic moment in sports. "To have two African American quarterbacks starting against each other for the first time ever in a Super Bowl is going to be an incredible event," Berman said on his postgame show.
Kadarius Toney went from being a first-round draft bust to an hero in the Kansas City Chiefs' 38-35 Super Bowl win against Philadelphia Eagles. The wide receiver made two of the biggest plays in franchise history to give Kansas City an 18 point lead midway through the fourth quarter and then caught an errant punt and ran 65 yards for a touchdown, setting up their final score of the game.
It was an incredible turnaround for Toney, who had been dealing with injuries and inconsistency ever since being traded from the New York Giants to the Chiefs. Throughout the regular season, he received rave reviews from coaches, teammates and fans alike; yet many NFL teams still considered him a risk; thus he was cut from their practice squad during training camp.
This offseason, the Chiefs re-signed Toney to a four-year contract worth $17 million. His talent had already been demonstrated during this postseason as he earned his second Pro Bowl selection and set an NFL record for receiving yards in one Super Bowl. Toney has been an essential piece of their offense this year and earned himself yet another Pro Bowl selection.
He made Super Bowl history by becoming the first receiver ever to catch a touchdown pass from a quarterback in the shotgun formation. That play set up an important field goal in the closing minutes of the game that gave the Chiefs their first championship.
On Sunday night, Mahomes bounced back after aggravating his high-ankle sprain in the first half and led his team to an exciting comeback victory against Philadelphia Eagles. He completed 17 of 22 passes for 161 yards and two touchdowns in the game.
At the end of the first half, Philadelphia led 24-14 thanks to Jalen Hurts' impressive play. He threw a deep ball to DeVonta Smith who made an amazing diving grab - but officials overturned her catch.
With the ball at their own 49-yard line, Philadelphia was driving for a touchdown and looking to extend their lead by double digits. But they failed to convert on third and five from within their own yard as stud linebacker Nick Bolton picked up and returned a fumble for a touchdown, cutting the Chiefs' lead to 24-14.
Haason Reddick has been an integral part of the Philadelphia Eagles' meteoric rise to become the most dominant team in NFL history. As both a key defender and top-tier pass rusher, Reddick has played a significant role.
In the NFC Championship Game against the San Francisco 49ers, Reddick recorded two sacks, one tackle for loss and a forced fumble to help Philadelphia earn a 31-7 victory. He also had an impactful hit on 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy who left with an elbow injury and was doubtful to return.
PFF noted that Hester dominated the 49ers' offensive line all game long and had an impact on every play during Sunday's victory. Indeed, PFF noted that Hester has a higher pass-rushing win rate than any other Eagles linebacker this season.
While his tackling skills have always been praised, it's his versatility that has really set him apart. He can play both off the edge and in a five-man front.
He's an impressive pass rusher when he's on the edge, capable of taking down tight ends and helping a linebacker group that often faces multiple opponents. Additionally, his speed and athleticism make him a great run-stopper as it gives him ample chances to take down runners.
His versatility earned him a spot in the starting lineup this year, even though he only played 12 games for the Cardinals after being drafted 13th overall. He began his career on the inside but has since transitioned to the edge where he's seen more consistent results.
In his first three seasons with Arizona, Reddick registered 10 sacks and a team-leading 22.5 tackles for loss. However, after being moved outside in 2020, he began realizing his full potential; now boasting 13 sacks and ranking second in the NFL with a PFF grade of 93.2.
Although he wasn't nominated for the NFL's Defensive Player of the Year award, Reddick is one of the more underrated defensive players in the league. This season he's been an integral part of Philadelphia's defense's success, helping them reach the Super Bowl while compiling an impressive sack total along the way.
