For the second time in the history of the Super Bowl there was overtime, the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers arrived 19-19, everything would be defined in the additional 15 minutes, where, under the new rules, each would have possession of the ball ; Those from the Bay Area had the first offensive, they added 3 points, they were not enough, the Chiefs, with a field goal, managed to lift the Vince Lombardi.

So, zero and two go. For the second time, the Chiefs beat the 49ers in a Super Bowl, marking 30 years since the Bay Area natives failed to lift the long-awaited Vince Lombardi Trophy.

The final score was a difference of just 3 points, 22-25. With 3 seconds left on the clock, there was nothing else to do, the NFL had a new winner. The Kansas City Chiefs won Super Bowl LVIII, becoming a dynasty with 3 championships won in 5 years, the last two in a row.

Patrick Mahomes commanded a 75-yard drive that ended with a pass to Micole Hardman inside the 5-yard line for the win.

Mahomes, quarterback of the Chiefs, took the MVP (Most Valuable Player) with 333 yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception and 66 yards on the ground. This title is the third in his career.

With this, the Chiefs have begun to forge their own path in NFL history, removing the stigma and comparisons with the dynasty marked by the New England Patriots.

And it took 20 years for an NFL franchise to win the Vince Lombardi in consecutive seasons, a fact that the Patriots achieved when led by Tom Brady.

It was in 2020 when the Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers, on that occasion 31-20.

Usher entertained the Halftime of Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The 2000s returned to the center of the stadium, where the lights marked the spectacular nature of the show, which was joined by Alicia Keys, Lil Jon and Ludacris, as surprise guests.

The fans were able to enjoy old glories of the American singer with songs like Caught Up, U Don?t Have to Call, Superstar, Love In This Club, If I Ain?t Got You (Alicia Keys), My Boo (Alicia Keys), Confessions Pt. II, Burn, U Got It Bad (HER), Bad Girl (HER), OMG, Turn Down for What (Lil Jon), and Yeah! (Lil Jon and Ludacris).
