Chiefs are champs after fourth-quarter comeback

Score, Chiefs vs. 49ers play-by-play


MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Oh, you thought the Kansas City Chiefs were done for, huh? That Patrick Mahomes was human after all?

You learned nothing from that AFC divisional round game against the Houston Texans, did you?

The guy who has delighted the NFL with his no-look passes and Houdini-like escapes pulled off his best feat of magic yet Sunday night. With about as much life as road kill at the end of the third quarter, Mahomes rallied the Chiefs to 21 fourth-quarter points and a 31-20 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV.

Chiefs running back Damien Williams scores around 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman in the fourth quarter.

Left completely undone under the heat of Nick Bosa’s relentless pressure, throwing interceptions on consecutive series in the third quarter, Mahomes responded with a performance for the ages. 

“We never lost faith. I think that’s the biggest thing,” Mahomes said. “Everybody on this team, nobody had their head down. And we believed in each other. That’s what we preached all year long.”
