    After a hard-fought but relatively low-scoring game, the Kansas City Chiefs came away with a 25-22 victory in Sunday's Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.

    Early plays appeared to favor Kansas City, when a first quarter fumble gave the Chiefs possession of the ball and a bizarre achilles injury took 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw out of the game.

    Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce - whose pop star girlfriend Taylor Swift was in attendance with several celebrity pals - raised eyebrows early on when he appeared to body check head coach Andy Reid on the sidelines, apparently upset with Reid's decision to run a play without him.

    But a record-setting field goal - 55 yards - put 3 points on the board for San Francisco just after that start of the second quarter. Forty-Niners kicker Jake Moody bested the previous Super Bowl record of 54 yards.

    A touchdown moved the needle even further in favor of San Francisco when the ball landed in running back Christian McCaffrey's hands and he made a break for the end zone.

    The Chiefs put their first points on the board thanks to kicker Harrison Butker, whose 57-yard field goal was the longest in Super Bowl history - knocking out the record San Francisco's Moody had set just minutes earlier.

    A Chiefs touchdown followed with just a few minutes to go in the third quarter, giving Kansas City a 13-10 lead.

    The lead changed hands again just two minutes into the 4th quarter, as the 49ers made one more trip into the end zone.

    Kansas City tied the score 16-16 with another field goal from Butker just over halfway through the fourth quarter.

    And with less than two minutes to go, Moody answered back: 19-16.


    Kansas City tied the score 19-19 with another field goal - with just a few seconds left on the clock.

    And for the second time in Super Bowl history - the first time under the league's newly-adopted overtime regulations - the game went into overtime.

    The 49ers tipped the scales with a 27-yard field goal from Moody, bringing the score to 22-19.

    The Chiefs returned fire with a touchdown, earning the title of back-to-back Super Bowl champions.
