A Review of Super Bowl LVIII: Best Super Bowl in Recent Memory

“Wow!” That was the only word that could come out of my mouth when the Kansas City Chiefs won their second straight Super Bowl last Sunday. From a game that started out so boring with absolutely no offense from either team, to a game that was the best one in recent memory. It even had the same record broken twice in a single game! If you happened to miss this year's Super Bowl, then this is the article for you. I’ll be recapping the Super Bowl starting with the first quarter. 

No points were scored by either team in the first quarter of this year's Super Bowl. The San Francisco 49ers had a strong opening drive, but a rare Christian McCaffrey fumble ended the 49ers promising five play 48 yard drive. The Chiefs on the other hand, did not have a promising first quarter. They did not gain a first down on their first drive and had to punt the ball away after just four plays on their second drive. The score after the first quarter was zero to zero.

The second quarter had a little more action but it was still kind of slow with only 13 points being scored. The first points of the Super Bowl came from rookie kicker Jake Moody, who hit a 55 yard field goal, which also broke the record for the longest field goal in Super Bowl history. The 49ers then followed that up with a trick play for a touchdown that put them up ten to zero with just a little time before halftime. The Chiefs were not going down without a fight though, as Harrison Butker drilled a 28 yard field goal right before halftime to get the Chiefs back within one possession with the Chiefs getting the ball after halftime. The score after the second quarter was the 49ers with 10 and the Chiefs with 3.

The third quarter was another pretty boring quarter with only ten points scored—all by the Chiefs. The Chiefs got a 57 yard field goal, which broke the previous record set earlier in the game by Jake Moody, which put the score at ten to six. The Chiefs then scored their first touchdown of the game on a 16 yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes to Marquez Valdez-Scantling, which also gave the Chiefs their first lead of the Super Bowl, 13-10. The 49ers did nothing with any of their drives in the opening quarter of the second half, so the score at the end of three quarters was 13-10 Chiefs.

The final score of Super Bowl 58 was a 25-22 Chiefs victory!

The 4th quarter and overtime is where the magic happened! The 49ers answered the Chiefs touchdown with a touchdown of their own on a Brock Purdy 10 yard touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings, but the extra point got blocked, which proved to be costly in the end. The score after that touchdown was 16-13 49ers. Harrison Butker and the Chiefs answered that touchdown with a 24 yard field goal, tying the game at 16. The 49ers then answered that field goal with a field goal of their own, a 53 yard field goal put the 49ers back in front, 19-16. The Chiefs then responded to that field goal with yet another field goal of their own, tying the game at 19 as time expired which meant the Super Bowl was going to overtime! The 49ers elected to get the ball first in overtime and marched down the field and got another field goal. This put the 49ers up 19-16 and Mahomes and company needed at least a field goal to stay alive, and that they did! After marching down the field, Mahomes found Mecole Hardman in the back of the end zone for the game winning touchdown! The final score of Super Bowl 58 was a 25-22 Chiefs victory!
