Kansas City Chiefs Win Super Bowl LIV
Kansas City Chiefs overcome a 10-point fourth quarter deficit to win Super Bowl LIV for the first time in half a century. They beat San Francisco 49ers 31-20 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. Chiefs become the first team in the history to come back from a 10-point deficit in three games in a single postseason.
With his team trailing 20-10 heading into the fourth quarter, last season’s League MVP made 2 incredible throws to continue Chief’s season of comebacks. The second touchdown by Damien Williams was the icing on the cake. Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points on their way to securing the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
“We kept believing,” said last year’s league MVP and now Super Bowl MVP Mahomes. “That’s what we did all postseason. I felt like if we were down by 10, we weren’t playing our best football. They guys really stepped up. They believed in me. I was making a lot of mistakes out there early. We found a way to win it in the end.”
Coach Reid Finally Wins the Super Bowl
Until Sunday night coach Andy Reid was regarded as the best coach to have never hoisted the Lombardi Trophy. This being his 21st year as a head coach, his second appearance at the Super Bowl proved to be the charm. He now has 222 career victories, the most wins (including the playoffs) by a head coach before winning the Super Bowl. “I’m really excited,” remarked Reid. “You get one, you want to go get another one, but we got to backpedal for about a minute here and enjoy this one and we’ll get busy on the next one.”
“I am gonna get the biggest cheeseburger you have ever seen… Might be a double,” he celebrated.
The last time Chiefs won the Super Bowl; President Richard Nixon was in the oval office, Paul McCartney was still a Beatle and Diana Ross was in the Supremes.
Scintillating Half Time Performance
Of course, Jennifer Lopez and Shakira brought the house down with the most spectacular performance Super Bowl has seen in a long time. The duo delivered better than they had promised during the half-time show performing about 20 hits between them. Dressed in a stunning red dress accompanied by an army of female dancers Shakira performed popular songs like “She Wolf”, “Whenever, Wherever” and “Hips Don’t Lie” driving the crowd into a frenzy.
Shakira then passed the mantle to her counterpart Jennifer Lopez who brought the heat to the city of Miami performing her classics like “Jenny from the Block” dancing exuberantly, she pole-danced her way into our hearts with a mouth-watering performance of “Waiting for Tonight”. Jlo then gave way to her 11 year old daughter who proved that singing is a family affair. She wowed everybody when she performed “Let’s Get Loud” a gigantic cross illuminated the Hard Rock Stadium in purple and gold, the colors of Kobe Bryant’s former team, the Los Angeles Lakers.
Reaction from the Commander-in-Chief
Kansas’ comeback victory elicited a reaction from the oval office:
“Congratulations to the Kansas City Chiefs on a great game and a fantastic comeback under immense pressure. We are proud of you and the Great State of Missouri. You are true Champions!” tweeted President Trump.
