By Aaron Humes: A breathless finish secured a consecutive National Football League (NFL) championship in the first overtime of Super Bowl LVIII for quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, 25-22, over the San Francisco 49ers.

In a rematch of Superbowl LIV, the 49ers defense came out strongly early and built a ten-point lead, coming within 23 seconds of holding the defending champions scoreless in the first half.

An interception on the first drive of the third quarter threatened an end to the Chiefs’ championship hopes, but Andy Reid’s men traded touchdowns and field goals with San Francisco’s Brock Purdy in the fourth quarter as regulation ended in a 19-19 tie.

Purdy got the ball first in overtime and led an impressive drive that was nonetheless stopped five yards short of goal, with a field goal securing the lead.

But Mahomes answered with a game-winning 75-yard drive and promised after the game on television that this will be the start of their dynasty, after matching New England Patriots legend Tom Brady with a back-to-back championship and overtime victory seven years after Brady’s all-time comeback against the Atlanta Falcons: “It’s the start of one. We’re not done, I know we’re going to celebrate tonight, but we’re not done, we’ve got a young team and we’re going to keep this thing going.”

For San Francisco and coach Kyle Shanahan, it is another blown lead and Super Bowl loss as Kansas City overcame both top seeds in each league.

The half-time show was headlined by R&B superstar Usher Raymond and was well-received, as many celebrities took in the game at Allegiant Stadium outside Las Vegas, Nevada.
