The 50-year journey is finally over for the Kansas City Chiefs after they defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl LIV to win the franchise's second ever Lombardi Trophy.
Patrick Mahomes will be taking home two types of hardware, however, after being rewarded accordingly with Super Bowl MVP honors.
At 24 years old, Mahomes is now the youngest player to ever win the Super Bowl MVP Award. He can now add that to his resume alongside becoming the youngest ever NFL MVP.
Facing a 20-10 deficit in the fourth quarter, the Chiefs looked dead to rights, thanks to two interceptions by Mahomes. That didn't deter him, though, as he led the Chiefs' seemingly insurmountable comeback with three touchdown-scoring drives.
Mahomes would hit tight end Travis Kelce in the end zone to cut the game to 20-17. Then, with a little under three minutes remaining in regulation, Mahomes completed a pass to running back Damien Williams, who barely broke the plane for the touchdown, giving Kansas City a 24-20 lead.
It was a lead the Chiefs would never surrender. Williams' next rushing score officially iced the game.
Mahomes finished the game with 286 yards, a 63.4% completion rate, two passing touchdowns, and one rushing score.
The young gunslinger's career just started, and he can already call himself a Super Bowl champion in just his second season as a starting quarterback.
