The Philadelphia Eagles dominated from the beginning with a very well organized defensive line. By the second quarter, they had scored 14 -7. However, the Kansas City Chiefs maintained their challenged. Due to a fumble recovered by Nick Bolton, Kansas City Chiefs outsmarted by the Philadelphia Eagles, to score a touchdown, equaling the game to 14-14.
Then, QB Jalen Hurtstook an advantage and scored a rush trouchdown before the end of the 2nd quarter. The touchdown was followed by another 3 points score by the team. By the half-time the score was Eagles, 24 vs Chiefs, 14.
As expected, Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes delivered an outstanding performance. However, late in the second quarter, Patrick Mahomes limped off the field after being tackled around the legs and looked to be in some pain on the sideline. This may be the effects of the high ankle sprain suffered in the playoffs against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He came back in the second half with a clear strategy to protect his ankle. By the third quarter, the score was Eagles, 24 vs Chiefs, 21, with Patrick Mahomes maintaining the momentum, with the outstanding performance of the receiver Kadarius Toney.
In the early fourth quartter, Kadarius Toney returned a punt 65 yards, to set up the Chiefs for a red-zone opportunity, the longest punt return in Super Bowl history. The Kansas Chiefs took advantage of the field position, with Patrick Mahomes hitting Skyy Moore for a four-yard touchdown reception and Kansas City led 35-27.
The Eagles then seemed to wake up and quickly tied the game, 35-35. Eagles QB Jalen Hurts was quick to score his 3rd rushing touchdow a playoff game, a match of Otto Graham's 1954 NFL Championship Game.
But it was too late as they could not hold the offense by the Chiefs. The Chiefs were able to score a field goal, 8 seconds before the end of the game, winning with 38-35. The Eagles needed some magic that did not happen.
Kansas Chiefs won the Super Bowl LVII and Patrick Mahomes was named Super Bowl LVII MVP, three years after after being named the MVP of Super Bowl LIV.
The 2023 Super Bowl 57 halftime show was led by Rihanna. It was another epic Super Bowl halftime show performance.
