Thanks to a game-winning drive in overtime by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs won their 3rd Super Bowl in four seasons with a 25-22 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, February 11. 

Mahomes was voted winner of the Pete Rozelle Trophy awarded to the Super Bowl LVIII Most Valuable Player. 

According to the NFL, Mahomes completed 34 of 46 attempts (73.9 percent) for 333 yards and two touchdowns with a 99.3 rating and added 66 rushing yards in helping the Chiefs overcome a 10-point deficit en route to a 25-22 overtime win in Super Bowl LVIII. It marked the second Super Bowl ever to go to overtime as the Chiefs became the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since the 2003-04 season. 

Kansas City recorded the seventh comeback of 10 or more points in a Super Bowl, including the team’s Super Bowl LIV and LVII victories. Mahomes, who was also named Super Bowl LIV and LVII MVP, is the third player ever to win three Super Bowl Most Valuable Player awards. 

He is the third player ever to be named Super Bowl MVP in consecutive seasons, joining Pro Football Hall of Famers Bart Starr (Super Bowls I and II) and Terry Bradshaw (Super Bowls XIII and XIV). 

Mahomes is the fifth quarterback with at least three Super Bowl titles. It marks the 33rd time that a quarterback has been named Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. Mahomes recorded his 15th career postseason win. The award is chosen by a panel comprised of 16 media members.
