(Newser) – Super Bowl 54 is in the books, and the Kansas City Chiefs are the new Super Bowl champions. KC came from behind late—they trailed 20-10 with about 6 minutes left—to beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-20, per ESPN. Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes—the game's MVP—threw two touchdown passes late in the game, the last one a 5-yarder to Damien Williams with 2:44 left that held up under video review. That one gave them a lead of 24-20. The 49ers then turned the ball over on downs in their next possession, and the Chiefs tacked on another TD with a little over a minute to go. The game was tied 10-10 at the half. (Read about the halftime show, a tribute to Kobe Bryant, and one notable ad.)
