Super Bowl: Patrick Mahomes leads Kansas City Chiefs to victory over Philadelphia Eagles and despite injury

Patrick Mahomes jumped through the red and yellow confetti after Glendale’s historic Super Bowl spectacle as if his ankle injury had never happened.

The quarterback superstar from the Kansas City Chiefs hugged his head coach Andy Reid, waved to his family in the VIP lounge and yelled hoarsely into the camera: “We’re going to celebrate hard, baby!”

At the 57th gigantic sports and show party of the National Football League (NFL), it was again the gifted playmaker who carried his team along after a ten-point deficit. In the Super Bowl duel with the equally outstanding Jalen Hurts, he threw three touchdowns.

Seventh ring of champions: Insatiable Brady ‘running out of fingers’

The Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals Stadium with a late field goal from kicker Harrison Butker 38-35.

Superbowl: Mahomes and Hurt shine

“I’ve always said it: You’re not going to beat those Chiefs!” Mahomes said, jabbing his finger in the air. “I want to thank everyone, on and off the team.” Reid gushed he could kiss his “MVP” with joy: “But I don’t.”

Mahomes strolled into State Farm Stadium in a gray designer suit, he wasn’t wearing socks – so he didn’t have to hide his injured ankle. It was to be his evening. Possibly the most talented quarterback of all NFL history, Hurts took on Hurts, the less-experienced but still accurate and clearly more powerful Eagles promoted sophomore.

The duel started strong, Hurts carried the football to a touchdown on his first drive. Mahomes hit back with a pass to Travis Kelce, whose brother Jason plays with the Eagles.

It was the night of the big moments. Hurts’ insane throw at AJ Brown put the Eagles back ahead, and after a fumble to equalize, Hurts followed up with a third touchdown before R&B superstar Rihanna’s sensational half-time show.

A fourth touchdown followed in the closing stages. His head coach Nick Sirianni cheered – during the national anthem before kick-off, tears were still running down the trainer’s face.

Rihanna: Superstar inspires at halftime

The Chiefs fans, outnumbered in the stadium, drew new hope with a touchdown run from rookie running back Isiah Pacheco. Mahomes seemed unaffected despite a hit to his already injured ankle. Hurts, however, equalized an eight-point deficit with another touchdown plus a two-point run.

The Chiefs had luck on their side in the last few minutes. Referee Carl Cheffers ruled James Bradberry holding in a controversial call, resulting in a new first down for the Chiefs. Butker scored to knockout eight seconds from time

The worldwide spectacle that takes place at the Super Bowl could also be seen again at halftime. While German football fans beat their heads up all night, tens of millions of viewers in the United States celebrated Rihanna’s big 13-minute comeback, who began her first public appearance in four years on a floating platform. Star guest was a baby in the womb, as her management immediately confirmed.

More superlatives: According to the National Chicken Council, 1.45 billion chicken wings should be consumed around the game. Added to this were an estimated 14,500 tons of crisps and 1230 million liters of beer.

30 seconds of advertising, for example for Cognac with Serena Williams, cost seven million dollars.
