Kansas City Chiefs Win SB57
Super Bowl 57
It started with the final 4 teams in the playoffs: Cincinnati Bengals, Kansas City Chiefs, Philadelphia Eagles, and San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs, and Niners made it to playoffs last year and the Bengals faced the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl 56. This year, the playoffs resulted in the final matchup: Kansas City Chiefs vs Philadelphia Eagles. In case you missed it, Kansas City Chiefs won SB57!
This was the first Super Bowl with two black starting quarterbacks: Patrick Mahomes with the Chiefs and Jalen Hurts with the Eagles. Both players are also from Texas. It's such a great thing to see two black quarterbacks represent in the Super Bowl during Black History Month!
Patrick Mahomes has accomplished so much in so little time. He is the first player in NFL history to win multiple championship and league MVP titles in 6 seasons. This year, he won the regular season MVP and Super Bowl MVP.

This was also the first Super Bowl that faced brother against brother: Travis and Jason Kelce are the first brothers to play against each other in the Super Bowl. Travis is a star tight end for the Chiefs and Jason is a star center for the Eagles. Their mom supported the both of them with a clever split jersey and shoes to match!
They are not the first brothers to compete for the championship: brothers John and Jim Harbaugh went head to head at Super Bowl XLVII as coaches for the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers.
This Super Bowl game was up in the air. Patrick Mahomes had an ankle injury that didn’t inspire confidence in the team’s chances of winning. No quarterback that has worn #1 has won a Super Bowl and Jalen Hurts sports #1 on his jersey.
The Eagles held the lead for most of the game and were possessive over draining time and preventing opposing scores. By halftime, the Chiefs were 10 points behind. Mahomes had suffered another ankle injury, but played as well as he had all season. The Chiefs took the lead to 35-28 after an incredible punt return by wide reciever Kadarius Toney. This secured a new NFL record for the longest punt return at 65 yards. Harrison Butker secured a winning field goal, taking the score to 38-35, with 8 seconds left in the game.
