The Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl last night against the 49ers 31-20.


The Super Bowl started out slow in the first three quarters and didn’t pick up the speed until the fourth quarter.


The first points of the Super Bowl came from the 49ers kicker Robbie Gould on a field goal, so the 49ers started the game 3-0.


The Chiefs on their next possession drove down the field and Patrick Mahomes, quarterback for the Chiefs, ran the ball for the touchdown and had the Chiefs take the lead at 7-3.


That was the end of the first quarter, but during the second quarter the San Francisco 49ers scored a touchdown to take the lead of the Chiefs 10-7, but the Chiefs got the ball and scored a field goal to tie that game going into halftime at 10-10.


The half-time performance was between Jennifer Lopez and Shakira singing their hit songs.


After halftime in the third quarter the chiefs couldn’t do anything offensively, so the 49ers got the ball and scored both a touchdown and field goal to take the lead 20-10 going into the fourth quarter.


In the fourth quarter the Chiefs offense and defense came alive making sure the 49ers didn’t score, and making sure they got points.


While being down 10 points the Chiefs scored a touchdown to Travis Kelce, tight end, so the Chiefs made it a one score game at 20-17 with six minutes remaining in the game.


The Chiefs defense stopped the 49ers offense and so they punted the ball, so the Chiefs were able to drive down the field and scored another touchdown to take the lead at 24-20.


The 49ers didn’t get a first down and gave the ball back to the Chiefs who ran the ball in for a touchdown.


Jimmy Garoppolo, quarterback for the 49ers, threw an interception to the Chiefs, which ended the game and the Chiefs won.
