Moments ago Chief’s QB Patrick Mahomes was interviewed after leading his team to a thrilling comeback win.
Mahomes was also named the Super Bowl MVP.
Inquirer reports after 21 years as a head coach, after 14 years of heartache with the Eagles, other close calls with the Chiefs, and a life devoted to football, Reid won his first Super Bowl as the top guy when Kansas City mounted a dramatic comeback to topple the pesky 49ers, 31-20, Sunday night.
The Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter after spotting San Francisco a 20-10 lead. Reid, who had drawn the wrath of Philadelphia for his snail-like play-calling 15 years ago in Super Bowl XXXIX, unleashed his superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes in a dazzling final nine minutes.
Mahomes, who had tossed two interceptions in the third quarter, drove the Chiefs on two touchdown-scoring drives to retake the lead. Some of the throws were breathtaking, two of them touchdowns to tight end Travis Kelce and running back Damien Williams.
Mahomes was named MVP of Super Bowl LIV. But it was Williams who drove the final nail into the 49ers’ coffin when he bolted 38 yards into the end zone for the final tally. The tailback, who had wrestled the lead job from former Eagle LeSean McCoy midseason, rushed 17 times for 104 yards and a score.
As the final seconds ticked down, many fans at Hard Rock Stadium – Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie among them – chanted, “Andy, Andy, Andy.” When the clock read 0:00, Reid was engulfed by his assistants. – his son, Brett, the Chiefs linebackers coach, among them.
