At State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the 57th Super Bowl, the Philadelphia Eagles were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs by a score of 38-35.
The Chiefs were dominated in the first half, particularly in the second quarter, by the Eagles. Philly quickly turned a 7-7 game into a 24-14 halftime lead, with the Eagles outplaying the Chiefs twice in plays and time of possession.
When Eagles linebacker T.J. Edwards fell on Mahomes’ right ankle while dragging him to the ground late in the second quarter, the injury to Mahomes’ right ankle aggravated once more. After the injury, Mahomes only completed 13 of 14 passes for 93 yards and two scores. He outran the Eagles’ defense on a 26-yard scramble with 2:55 left in the game, setting up the game-winning field goal, as if that wasn’t enough.
Every NFL game, including the Super Bowl, has two halves. Only one of them was attended by the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles collapsed in the second half after pushing the Kansas City Chiefs to the brink and injuring Patrick Mahomes. They lost the Lombardi Trophy because they were outgained, out-disciplined, out-hustled, and outscored.
That might be harsh considering that the final score was 38-35 and the Chiefs didn’t win until the very last second. But in the NFL’s biggest game, it’s as close to a gimme as you can get with a 10-point lead, all the momentum, and Mahomes barely able to leave the field at halftime.
Kadarius Toney of the Chiefs set several Super Bowl records, including the longest punt return and the most rushing yards by a quarterback with 70 from Jalen Hurts of the Eagles.
The halftime show featured Rihanna in the lead. NBC News was informed by a RiRi representative that she is pregnant once more.
According to CNBC, this year’s advertisements featured a lot of celebrities. Super Bowl commercial spots sold out, with 30-second spots selling for more than $7 million at their peak.
After halftime, the Chiefs defense, which was abused in the first half, performed significantly better. The Chiefs forced a field goal after a 17-play drive, a punt on the following drive, and the final Eagles touchdown before the game’s final play. In the second half, the Eagles went on three drives.
In the second half, the Chiefs’ defense prevented Hurts from making any more explosive rushing attempts and contained Hurts’ rushing.
During this game, the Chiefs’ offensive line performed admirably. Sacks are prohibited. Mahomes was seldom struck.
The frantic attack of the Chiefs was also open for business.K.C showed up during the second half, when it really mattered. This unit was the reason the Chiefs won the Super Bowl.
Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs quarterback, will take home a second Super Bowl ring and the award for the most valuable player.
Mahomes kept his team consistent, playing despite what appeared to be a pain in his ankle and coming back from behind to win the game before the half. Mahomes returned to the field to lead the Chiefs back to the end zone after limping off just before halftime.
The 2022-23 professional football season is over, and the most ardent fans will have to put up with basketball, hockey, and baseball until the 2024 Super Bowl, which will be held in Las Vegas on February 11, 2024.
