Who’s going to win Super Bowl 57? | You Ask the Questions

Patrick Mahomes proved why he is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player as he shrugged off an ankle injury to lead the Kansas City Chiefs to a dramatic 38-35 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday to claim their second Super Bowl in four years.

Kansas City’s hopes of returning home with the Lombardi trophy looked bleak late in the opening half when Mahomes appeared to re-injure the right ankle that had been a major worry coming into the game.

Grimacing in pain after a tackle, Mahomes hobbled off the field and slammed his helmet to the turf as the Chiefs headed into halftime trailing 24-14.

But when the teams returned after the break a resilient Mahomes produced a heroic effort, tossing two fourth-quarter touchdowns and engineering a final drive to set up Harrison Butker’s 27-yard game-winning field goal with eight seconds to play.


Super Bowl 2023 - Patrick Mahomes named MVP

Add yet more accolades to an accolade already Hall of Fame worthy after just five seasons as a starter. It was another superlative performance from Patrick Mahomes, indistubably now the league’s finest quarterback.

With victory in Super Bowl LVII, Mahomes became the first player to win both league MVP and a Lombardi Trophy in the same season since Kurt Warner in 1999.

Super Bowl 2023 - Eagles 35-38 Chiefs - FINAL

Patrick Mahomes led the Kansas City Chiefs to Super Bowl glory after a stunning comeback victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Mahomes threw three touchdowns in an efficient passing display, including 182 yards from 21/27 attempts, rallying from behind against a heroic effort from Jalen Hurts, whose three rushing touchdowns and one passing touchdown were not enough.

It is the second title for Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid in a dominant five-year spell.

Mahomes who suffered a dislocated ankle three weeks ago, appeared to suffer a reoccurrence of the issue in the first half after a hit from TJ Edwards.

The 27-year-old hobbled off at half-time, with his team trailing by 10 at half-time and left in a historically bad position.
