Chiefs defeat 49ers in OT to claim Super Bowl LVIII victory
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 25-22, in overtime Sunday to win Super Bowl LVIII.
Through the triumph — it’s fourth in franchise history — Kansas City became the first team to repeat as Super Bowl champions since the 2003-04 New England Patriots, breaking the longest back-to-back drought in the history of the National Football League.
The Chiefs also became the fourth organization to win three Super Bowls in five years, joining the Pats, Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The 49ers’ heartbreaking loss is the franchise’s third defeat in eight tries, with all three losses coming in their most recent appearances. They’ve now been vanquished twice by Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in a Super Bowl, and they haven’t captured a Lombardi Trophy since the 1994 season.
