The Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl LVII Champions. That’s our favorite kind of Victory Monday.

After finishing the regular season 14-3 and heading into the playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Chiefs battled through two playoff games to earn their spot in the Super Bowl. Four quarters later, they came out on top, beating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35. Let’s take a closer look at what went down on the big day.

Quick recap

The game started with a classic Mahomes to Kelce touchdown pass to tie it at 7-7. Later in the first half, linebacker Nick Bolton recovered a fumble and scored a touchdown, tying the game up again at 14-14. The Eagles ended up taking a 10 point lead to end the first half — but don’t worry. Running back Isiah Pacheco put seven more points on the score board in the start of the third quarter. After a Kadarius Toney touchdown, the Chiefs were up 28-27 with just 12 minutes to go. Both teams fought back, bringing the game to a 35-35 tie, leaving the game-winning points in the hands (or should we say leg?) of kicker Harrison Butker.
