The Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes was named MVP of Super Bowl LVII
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his team to a game-winning drive that earned him his second career Super Bowl MVP award after beating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 Sunday night at State Farm Stadium.
Mahomes is now the seventh player in NFL history to win both regular-season MVP and Super Bowl MVP in the same year.
Mahomes threw three touchdowns and threw 21 of 27 yards for 182 through the air. He also rushed for 44 yards, 26 of which came on the final drive that helped set up their final trip to the red zone.

In the first half, it looked like Mahomes had reinjured his ankle, which he sprained in the Divisional round against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
But during his post-game MVP speech, he reminded everyone of what he had been saying all along before Sunday.

“I told you guys this week there’s nothing that’s going to keep me off this football field,” he told Terry Bradshaw. “I just want to yell at my teammates, man. We challenged each other. It took everyone to win this football game.”
After Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts rushed for his third touchdown of the game and initiated the two-point conversion to level, the Chiefs and Mahomes had just over five minutes to retake the lead.
Beginning at her own 25-yard line, another classic Mahomes game-winning drive was underway.
The Chiefs were methodical as they began picking up yards on the Eagles’ defense, with Mahomes finding Juju Smith-Schuster and Travis Kelce through the air while running back Isiah Pacheco amassed yards on the ground.

But Mahomes, despite looking like he had injured his already injured ankle in the first half, used his legs to rack up crucial yards. First it was a 10-yard scramble that resulted in a first down. But the 26-yard streak really got the Chiefs in business at Philadelphia’s 17-yard line.
After Jerick McKinnon slipped before reaching the end zone, a pair of knees from Mahomes followed by Harrison Butker’s 27-yard field goal that won the game, the Chiefs won their second Super Bowl in four years.
