Steven Kertis, Reporter

The Kansas City Chiefs outlast the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl 57 on Sunday in State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The Eagles started off the game red hot as they marched down the field in the first five minutes of the game and quarterback Jalen Hurts scored a 1-yard rushing touchdown to put the Eagles up 7-0.

The Chiefs would answer right back as quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Travis Kelce to tie the game at seven.

The Eagles would score on the first play of the second quarter as Jalen Hurts threw a 45-yard bomb to wide receiver AJ Brown as the Eagles took a 14-7 lead.

Defense gets involved as Chiefs linebacker Nick Bolton recovers a fumble and takes it 36 yards for a touchdown to tie the game at fourteen.

Eagles would answer quickly again as Hurts scores his second rushing touchdown of the half to put the Eagles up 21-14. The Eagles would tack on a field goal to make it 24-14 at halftime.

The Chiefs started the second half with the football, and it did not take long for them to march down the field and score a touchdown by running back Isiah Pacheco to put the Chiefs down by three.

Kansas City would take its first lead in the game as Patrick Mahomes would find a wide-open wide receiver Kadarius Toney as the Chiefs took the lead 28-27.

Toney would not be done as he returns the longest punt in Super Bowl History back to the Eagles 4-yard line. Mahomes would find wide receiver Skyy Moore to put the Chefs up 35-27 and their largest lead of the game.

The Eagles would not go away as Jalen Hurts scored his third rushing touchdown of the night along with the two-point conversion to tie the game at 35.

Mahomes gets the ball back and marches down the field for kicker Harrison Butker to win the game for the Chiefs and he nails it giving them their third Super Bowl title.
