Mahomes, con dos pases de anotación en el cuarto periodo, se convirtió en el Jugador Más Valioso (MVP) del partido y en el héroe del triunfo de los Chiefs (13-4).

Los Chiefs disputaron en 1967 el primer Super Bowl, que perdieron por 10-35 ante los Packers de Green Bay, y volvieron a jugar otro en 1970, cuando ganaron 23-7 a los Vikings de Minnesota, sin que desde entonces hubiesen llegado hasta hoy a la gran final de la NFL.

Los 50 años de ausencia en un Super Bowl era la segunda mayor en la historia de la NFL solo superados por los 51 de los Jets de Nueva York y los Lions de Detroit, que en sus 54 temporadas de existencia no lo han jugado nunca.

El veterano entrenador en jefe de los Chiefs, Andy Reid, con 21 temporadas en la NFL, ganó este domingo su primer título de Super Bowl después de haberlo disputado también con los Eagles de Filadelfia en la edición XXXIX, de 2004, que perdieron.

Reid es uno de los siete entrenadores en jefe de la NFL que ha conseguido llegar al Super Bowl con dos equipos diferentes para unirse a Don Shula (Baltimore y Miami), Bill Parcells (New York Giants y New England), Dan Reeves (Denver y Atlanta), Dick Vermeil (Philadelphia y St. Louis), Mike Holmgren (Green Bay y Seattle) y John Fox (Carolina y Denver).- EFE
