This year’s Super Bowl is officially in the books, with the Kansas City Chiefs taking home the Vince Lombardi Trophy for the second time in four years. Betting has become a big part of the NFL experience, allowing fans to wager on their favorite teams.
Some of the world’s biggest sportsbooks offer promotions and free wagers to new clients, giving them a chance to experience the excitement of these big games without wagering their own funds.
Super Bowl LVII was a thrilling contest up to the very end, with the Chiefs defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in a game that kept fans on the edge of their seats. The Chief’s Quarterback Patrick Mahomes made history by becoming the first player in NFL history to win the Super Bowl and MVP in the same season.
Many fans are wondering what made the difference in such a close game. Both teams fought hard, making this one of the most competitive match-ups in history. With that in mind, we’ve compiled this list of takeaways from the big night.
The Second-Half Changed the Outcome
The Eagles appeared to be on the road to victory in the first half of this year’s game when they displayed incredible dominance in the second quarter. By halftime, Philly had a 24-14 advantage over the Chiefs, and many spectators thought the game was in the Eagle’s hands.
At the break, the Chiefs had only 128 yards to the Eagles’ 265 yards. If Jalen Hurts hadn’t fumbled the ball, committing an unforced error that resulted in a defensive score for the Chiefs, the game wouldn’t have been competitive at all.
To say things were looking bleak would be an understatement. However, as any NFL fan knows, things can change quickly on the gridiron, and that’s exactly what happened. The Chiefs scored on all four possessions they had in the second half, and their defense improved dramatically. The defense kept Hurts’ rushing in check and prevented all explosive running attempts.
A Dynasty in the Making
After watching the Chiefs’ performance on Super Bowl Sunday, it’s hard to deny that this team has the potential to become a dynasty. While many advise caution when speaking of dynasties, with a second championship in four years, it’s safe to say the Chiefs’ legacy is really unfolding.
Of course, many believed last year’s Rams and the 2017 Eagles were also potential dynasties, but neither team lived up to expectations. However, something seems different with the Chiefs. In Mahomes, they have the best player in the NFL by a wide margin. That alone will make them contenders for years to come.
Since Mahomes became a starter, the Chiefs have won at least 12 games per season and made it to five AFC Championship Games in a row with home-field advantage. It’s hard to pull off that kind of consistency in the NFL, and it speaks of how talented this team is.
The Chief’s greatness doesn’t end with Mahomes. When it comes to offense, Andy Reid has stood out like few others and is sure to go down as one of the greatest of all time. If the Mahomes-Reid duo endures for a few more years, it’ll give the Chiefs a good shot at creating a dynasty.
Mahomes Has Cemented His Legacy
Football fans and commentators have not stopped talking about Mahomes’ performance in leading his team to victory in Super Bowl LVII. It wasn’t a smooth path. He limped off the field in the second half, appearing to have aggravated an injury he suffered earlier in the playoffs.
Fans were nervous, but Mahomes returned and impressively finished the game, throwing for three touchdowns with no interceptions. He delivered when it was needed. The Chief’s victory marked the second time Mahomes has won a title in six years.
His timing was immaculate, allowing the Chiefs to score 24 points in the second half after entering halftime 24-14 down. At only 27 years old, Mahomes has won two Super Bowls, an impressive legacy he will build on in the future.
