The Kansas City Chiefs are world champions once again, following a 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

The Chiefs are the first Super Bowl winners to repeat as champions since the New England Patriots achieved the feat in Super Bowl XXXIX.

Despite the seemingly low score, the game was one to remember and offered a little bit of everything.

As is standard for Patrick Mahomes, who has trailed by double digits in all four of his Super Bowl appearances, the Chiefs had to mount a memorable comeback for the victory. After the teams exchanging scores at the end of regulation, the Super Bowl went to overtime for just the second time. After the 49ers cashed in on a field goal to start the extra period, Mahomes followed up by leading a game-winning touchdown drive.

The sports world swiftly praised the repeat champions after their big win.
