The Kansas City Chiefs won their second Super Bowl in the last four seasons in the third-highest scoring title game of all-time.

This was the first Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXXII in 1998 between the Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos in which both teams scored a touchdown on their opening drive.
Patrick Mahomes became the first quarterback in NFL history to win the Super Bowl in a season in which he led the league in passing yards. The previous six to have competed in the Super Bowl had all lost the big game.

Mahomes is the first quarterback to be named league MVP and to win the Super Bowl in the same season since Kurt Warner did so with the St. Louis Rams in the 1999 season. The Chiefs QB also became just the third player to have been named league MVP and Super Bowl MVP on more than one occasion.
Kadarius Toney set a new record for the longest punt return in Super Bowl history with his 65-yard effort in the fourth quarter.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts‘ 15 carries is the most carries by a QB in any Super Bowl in history, while he also set a record for the most rushing yards in a Super Bowl.
