The fourth quarter didn’t get off to a great start for the Chiefs. Facing a 10-point deficit, they were moving down the field until Mahomes threw his second interception of the night. He hadn’t thrown an interception in the playoffs or had a game with multiple interceptions all season.
After the 49ers’ had a drive stall, the Chiefs got the ball back and Mahomes put together his best drive of the game. The big play was a 44-yard pass to Tyreek Hill, which put him over his receiving props for the game. After a pass interference in the end zone, Mahomes found Kelce on a one-yard strike to bring the Chiefs to within three points of San Francisco.
The tide of this game turned pretty quickly after the Chiefs cut the lead to make it a one possession game. Their defense was able to hold the 49ers’ offense, setting up the Chiefs for a chance to take the lead. They went down the field with ease, scoring a touchdown on a short pass to Damien Williams. The drive only took two minutes and 26 seconds and put Kansas City on top for the first time since the first quarter.
The 49ers got the ball back and once again stalled out. Garoppolo was sacked on a fourth down attempt, giving the Chiefs the ball back on the 49ers’ 42-yard line. After the turnover on downs, Damien Williams rumbled for a 38-yard touchdown run. This was essentially the dagger and the game was officially over when San Francisco got the ball back and Garoppolo threw his second interception of the game. Patrick Mahomes and Chiefs are Super Bowl champions!
