The American Professional Football (NFL) Kansas City Chiefs became the main character of the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the third time in his career with a dramatic come-from-behind victory.
Kansas City defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in the 57th Super Bowl held at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, USA on the 13th (Korean time).
Kansas City’s Super Bowl victory is the third in its career, following 4 in 1969 and 54 in 2019.
In particular, Kansas City opened the ‘Chiefs Dynasty’ by advancing to three Super Bowls out of the last four seasons and winning twice.
Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the MVP of the regular season this year, played a decisive role in helping the team win.
After the end of this season, with Tom Brady, the best quarterback in NFL history, announcing his retirement, Mahomes presented the team with the Vince Lombardi Trophy and announced the transfer of the quarterback kingship.
On this day, Mahomes threw 3 touchdown passes and 182 yards, and did not allow a single interception.
In particular, Mahomes showed a wide view by noticing the opponent’s foul 1 minute and 54 seconds before the end of the fourth quarter, where the score was 35-35, and intentionally passing it there.
Philadelphia cornerback James Bradbury committed a foul by grabbing the body of Kansas City wide receiver Juju Smith Schuster while on defense.
Mahomes, who confirmed this from afar, passed the ball even though the wide receiver could not catch it, drawing out the referee’s declaration of a defensive holding foul, and Kansas City seized their last chance right in front of the opponent’s end zone.
Kansas City, who deliberately waited for time even in the middle of a touchdown, kicker Harrison Butcker scored a field goal with 8 seconds left to end the game, effectively putting an end to the game.
After the game, Mahomes was named the second Super Bowl MVP of his personal career following Super Bowl 54 in 2019, when he defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20.
“I’ve been saying nothing would get me off the field,” said Mahomes, who had to undergo treatment at halftime for an ankle injury he’s been carrying all postseason. “We challenged and we needed the whole team to win. is the Super Bowl Champion.”
The game between the two teams, which exchanged touchdowns once in the first quarter, flared up in earnest from the second quarter.
The protagonist of the second quarter was Philadelphia’s quarterback Jaylen Hurts.
At the start of the second quarter, Hertz threw a 45-yard, accurate long-range pass to wide receiver AJ Brown, who was running to 카지노사이트the end line, leading to a touchdown.
Thanks to Philadelphia’s proud offensive line, Kansas City’s feet were completely locked down, Hertz was able to throw decisive passes with plenty of time.
However, Hertz committed a fumble, a fatal mistake, spilling the ball at 9:39 in the second quarter, and Kansas City linebacker Nick Bolton picked up the ball and ran to the end to score a touchdown.
Hertz, who allowed the game to tie because of his mistake, made another surprise play.
2 minutes and 20 seconds before the end of the second quarter, with only 4 yards left to the opponent’s end line, instead of passing, he made a touchdown with a rushing play in which he ran with the ball himself.
Philadelphia, riding on momentum, ended the first half with a 24-14 lead with Jake Elliott’s field goal just before the end of the second quarter.
In the second half, which resumed after pop star Rihanna’s spectacular halftime show, Kansas City’s come-from-behind show unfolded.
Kansas City, who scored 7 points in the 3rd quarter with running back Isaiah Pacheco’s touchdown and bonus kick, blocked Philadelphia’s offense with 3 field goals, narrowing the gap to 4 points.
Mahomes’ “magic” began in the fourth quarter.
With an exquisite pass that deceived all of Philadelphia’s proud defenses, it led Caderius Tony’s touchdown, which was a no-mark, and this time, it led to Sky Moore’s touchdown in the same way, succeeding in a 35-27 turnaround.
After Quarterback Hurts scored another direct touchdown, Philadelphia even scored a two-point bonus touchdown to bring the game back to 35-35.
However, just before the end of the game, Mahomes led a field goal by inducing a foul with a wide field of vision, and the 57th Super Bowl ended with a new hero.
Philadelphia faced Kansas City with a play that caught Hertz’s surprise, who was the backup quarterback until last year, but eventually fell on his knees at the end and failed to claim his second career trophy.
