The Kansas City Chiefs went into the fourth quarter down three points to the Philadelphia Eagles. They finished off their drive started in the third quarter with a short five-yard touchdown to WR Kadarius Toney. The Chiefs have their first lead of the game and are up 28-27.

Toney’s first catch in the Super Bowl was certainly an important one. He flew completely under the Eagles' radar and was completely uncovered. Toney waltzed into the endzone for the easy score. He was acquired midseason from the New York Giants and added to the wide receiver depth for the Chiefs. While he hasn’t always been in the main view of the offense, Toney plays his role well. He provides another dependable outlet for Mahomes to target on the offense and can be used in a variety of ways.
