As the 2019/2020 NFL football season wound to an end Sunday, February 2 at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium, Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs took on Kyle Shanahan’s San Francisco 49ers. 

   The Chiefs, representing the AFC, went into the postseason with a record of 12-4 led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes. 24-year-old Mahomes just finished his third season with the Chiefs. Representing the NFC were the 49ers, led by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. 28-year-old Garoppolo has been in the league for six years. As soon as singer/songwriter Demi Lovato kicked things off with the Star Spangled Banner, the action began.

   The first half of the game was relatively low scoring. After the 49er’s defense held the Chiefs to a three and out on their opening drive, San Francisco kicked off the scoring with a 38 yard field goal on their opening drive. Now trailing 3-0, the Chiefs retaliated with a one yard touchdown run by quarterback Mahomes, taking the lead 7-3. On San Francisco’s next drive, Chiefs cornerback Bashaud Breeland intercepted Garoppolo’s pass. Kansas City then settled for a 31 yard field goal to take the lead 10-3. Before going in for halftime, fullback Kyle Juszczyk evened the score 10-10 with a diving touchdown.

   For the Pepsi Halftime show, musical artists Jennifer Lopez and Shakira performed an electric show. The two artists co-headlined the event, entertaining the 62,000 in attendance at Hard Rock Stadium and over 100 million worldwide, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

   Coming out of halftime, both now rested teams continued to battle it out. The 49ers eventually struck first with a 42 yard field goal boot by Robbie Gould. Later, after Mahomes threw his first interception, San Francisco marched down the field. 49er Raheem Mostert eventually powered into the end zone for a one yard touchdown run, putting San Fransisco up 20-10.

   As the fourth quarter began, Mahomes and the Chiefs showed why they are known for their late game comebacks. Mahomes connected with tight end Travis Kelce for a  one yard touchdown with 6:13 left, bringing the score to only 20-17. Later in the quarter, with 2:44 left, Kansas City took the lead 24-20 after Mahomes connected with former Miami
