After being named the regular-season MVP last year, Patrick Mahomes can now add Super Bowl MVP to his resume after being voted the Most Valuable Player of Super Bowl LIV for leading the Chiefs to a 31-20 come-from-behind win over the 49ers.
It wasn't Mahomes' best performance by any means, but he came through in the biggest moments to lead his team to victory. He scored a one-yard rushing touchdown for Kansas City's first score of the game, and with the Chiefs trailing San Francisco by 10 points in the fourth quarter, he saved his best for last.
He orchestrated a 10-play, 83-yard drive, culminating with a touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce, to pull Kansas City within 20-17 with just over six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Then, after the 49ers went three-and-out, Mahomes led the Chiefs down the field with a seven-play drive, capped off with a five-yard touchdown pass to running back Damien Williams with less than three minutes left to take a 27-24 lead.
That would turn out to be the deciding score, as San Francisco's ensuing drive would fall short. Williams then scored a 38-yard rushing touchdown to put the game out of reach.
Mahomes finished Super Bowl LIV having completed 26-of-42 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns, along with two interceptions. It's the 30th time a quarterback has won the award.
