It’s another Super Bowl to remember for the Kansas City Chiefs after winning their second Super Bowl in four years. This game was as tough as their last Super Bowl win after overcoming a strong Philadelphia Eagles team, 38-35.
It was a tightly contested game where neither team could escape their opponents in the offensive department. Both teams have outstanding playmakers on the offensive side of the ball, and a high-scoring Super Bowl LVII was nothing short of a certainty.
However, the Philadelphia Eagles lived up to the pre-game expectations of the experts at OKBET. They finished the first half with a 24-17 score thanks to the outstanding quarterback play of Jalen Hurts.
However, the Chiefs bounced back in the second half in a way that almost seemed like it was a movie script. They scored three touchdowns in the second half, which allowed Harrison Butker to score the game-winning field goal from 27 yards.
Patrick Mahomes was instrumental in the Chiefs’ third franchise Super Bowl. He finished the big game in Arizona with 182 passing yards, and his three passing touchdowns were key in the Chiefs’ comeback.
His most productive target was Travis Kelce, with 81 receiving yards and one TD to his name. Isaiah Pacheco continues to become one of the biggest steals of the 2022 Draft. The seventh-round pick finished Super Bowl LVII with 76 rushing yards and one rushing TD for the Chiefs.
The Eagles Will Look to Bounce Back
The Eagles will rue some of the botched drives that cost them the Super Bowl LVII victory. However, the team will look to bounce back from this bitter defeat.
Hurts was the major reason the Eagles almost won their second franchise Super Bowl. He finished the game with 304 passing yards and one passing touchdown. He was also unstoppable out of the pocket as he notched three rushing TDs for 78 yards.
The Eagles’ young signal-caller believes this bitter loss to the Chiefs will push the team forward.
“You want to cherish these moments with the people that you come so far with,” Hurts told Fox News’ Scott Thompson. “Your family, your loved ones, your teammates, your peers, everyone you do it with and do it for.”
Meanwhile, Jason Kelce gave his brother Travis a cuss-filled congratulatory message. He was also seen embracing his mother after the game.

There have been talks of the future Hall Of Fame center retiring after the season. While he hasn’t said anything about his future, some believe that this might be it for the beloved Philly sports icon.
It will be a tough road back for the Eagles. Fortunately, they have a great leader in the locker room that will help them compete for another Super Bowl sooner than later.
