Chiefs repeat! Mahomes leads winning drive in OT for 25-22 win

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Live updates from the Super Bowl in Las Vegas:

Mahomes rallies the Chiefs to second straight Super Bowl title, 25-22 over 49ers in OT

Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs are back-to-back Super Bowl champions.

Mahomes threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman with 3 seconds left in overtime, and the Chiefs rallied to beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 on Sunday in the second overtime game in Super Bowl history, becoming the first repeat champs in 19 years and ninth overall.

It was the second straight win for the Chiefs, but the first since she became fan-in-chief when she and Travis Kelce, who got a key first down before the touchdown, began dating shortly before the season started.

Shanahan oversees another Super Bowl collapse

What a crushing loss for 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, who again will be dogged with questions about not being able to win the big game.

He was the Falcons’ offensive coordinator that lost a 28-3 lead to the Patriots.

Four years ago, the 49ers under his command blew a two-possession lead in the fourth quarter to the Chiefs.

And then tonight, the 49ers took leads with 1:53 left in regulation and again in overtime and couldn’t hold on as Kansas City first forced OT and then won the game.

Shanahan is one of the NFL’s brilliant offensive minds, but until the Niners win a title with him on the sideline, the questions will remain.

The GOAT. The dynasty.

Don’t count out Patrick Mahomes, who won his third Super Bowl title with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Harman in overtime. He is chasing Tom Brady’s seven championships, the current greatest of all time. Mahomes is in the conversation as well.

This the Chiefs’ second Super Bowl championship in a row and third in five seasons.
