Patrick Mahomes aggravated an ankle injury in the first half, but it didn’t deter him from leading a second-half comeback for Kansas City in the Chiefs’ last-minute 38-35 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII, played Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

Harrison Butker’s 27-yard field goal with 11 seconds to play gave the Chiefs their third Super Bowl title; they won previously in 1970 and 2019. Kansas City suffered Super Bowl losses in 1967 and 2020. Philadelphia won the big game in 2018 with other losses in 2005 and 1981.

Mahomes was selected as the game’s most valuable player. He completed 21 of 27 passes for 182 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions without a sack, and ran six times for 44 yards. Isiah Pacheco gained 76 rushing yards on 15 carries. Juju Smith-Schuster caught seven passes for 53 yards, and Travis Kelce snared six passes for 81 yards and a touchdown.

Philadelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts threw for 304 yards, completing 27 of 38 passes. Hurts was also the Eagles’ leading rusher, gaining 70 yards on 15 attempts, DeVonta Smith caught seven passes for 100 yards, and A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert each caught six passes.

After two quarters, it was beginning to look like a rout for the NFC champion Eagles, who built a 10-point halftime lead. Hurts’ 1-yard TD run at 10:13 of the first quarter put Philadelphia up 7-0. Three minutes later, Mahomes found Travis Kelce for an 18-yard score, tying the game at 7-7.

On the first play of the second quarter, Hurts completed a 45-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Brown to regain the lead. But the Chiefs caught a break at 9:48 of the second quarter, when Kansas City linebacker Nick Bolton scooped up a Hurts fumble and returned it 36 yards for a game-tying score.

Hurts ran in for his second rushing touchdown with 2:24 left in the first half, and Jake Elliott booted a 35-yard field goal as time ran out in the second quarter, giving Philadelphia a 24-14 lead at the break.

A 1-yard run by Isiah Pacheco capped a 10-play, 75-yard drive to start the third quarter, pulling the Chiefs to within 24-21. Elliott kicked a 33-yard field goal with 1:48 to play, extending the Eagles’ lead to 27-21.

Three minutes into the fourth quarter, Mahomes completed a 5-yard TD pass to Kadarius Toney, giving the Chiefs their first lead of the game at 28-27. Moments later, Toney returned a punt 65 yards to the Philadelphia 5-yard line, setting up a 4-yard TD pass from Mahomes to Skyy Moore. Kansas City led 35-27 with 9:26 remaining.

Hurts ran two yards up the middle for his third rushing TD, then ran in the 2-point conversion attempt, tying the game at 35-35 at 5:20 of the fourth quarter.

Kansas City chewed up most of the remaining time with a 66-yard drive, capped by Butker’s game-winning field goal. Philadelphia had one final possession, but a Hurts threw an incomplete pass upfield as time expired,

The winners share for the Chiefs is $157,000, while each member of the Eagles will receive $82,000. Attendance was 67,827. Rhianna provided the halftime entertainment.

That’s Amaury News and Commentary: Superbowl LVII = Super Business

Superbowl = Super-business

That’s Amaury News and Commentary

By Amaury Pi-González

The Superbowl has become as American as The Fourth of July and Thanksgiving Day all rolled into one. It shows commercialism and consumerism mixed with patriotism and the whole culture of a sport named Football, which is best played in the NFL, one of the best sports leagues in the whole world. It is a staple of America is as a culture. Capitalism at its best.

Whole families gathered around the television with all kinds of snacks, goodies, drinks. This Sunday the 12th of February 2023 in Phoenix, Arizona Superbowl LVII will take place, between the NFC Champions Philadelphia Eagles and the AFC Champions Kansas City Chiefs, at State Farm, Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, the home stadium of the Arizona Cardinals.

FOX Network kick-off time is 6:30 ET. The Phoenix area which suffered great business hardships during the last few Covid years is ready to welcome this great event, which it would be a springboard to 15 MLB baseball teams who are slated to open their respective Spring Training camps in less than two weeks. The Valley of the Sun is ready for a business bonanza, first the Super Bowl, then baseball Spring Training.

  • The average cost for a Superbowl commercial on FOX Network is around $7 Million.
  • The audience is estimated to be, at least 200 million people in the United States. That is nine times more than the 23 million who watched the State of the Union address this Tuesday.
  • Over 230 countries will also televise this Superbowl, in just about every conceivable language with huge audiences expected as well.
  • Advertisers: From Beer, Food, Insurance, Automobile, and other popular brands plus always the surprises. During the past 20 years, commercials on the Superbowl have become as popular as and even more memorable than the game itself. One of those surprises this Sunday is one on the “Late Night King of TV”, Greg Gutfeld, and his show Gutfeld, on the FOX network. Gutfeld is a graduate of Serra High School in San Mateo, same as Tom Brady and Barry Bonds, Gutfeld show is clocking the highest ratings beating such Late Night network shows as those of Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert.

If the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Kansas City Chiefs they would tie the Philadelphia A’s for the most titles in the City of Brotherly Love. It would be the Eagles fifth title, after NFL crowns in 1948, 1949, and 1960 and a Super Bowl victory in 2018 that would match the Philadelphia Athletics for the history of that sports-crazed city.

Businesses large, medium, and small gear themselves for every Super Bowl, all across the US, Hawaii and Puerto Rico for this event. There is nothing in American sports that is close to the NFL Super Bowl every year.

Get your chicken wings ready, I’m coming to your Super Bowl party! Eagles by 3!

On the Super Bowl LVII podcast with Tony Renteria:

#1 Tony, things now get started in Arizona where Super Bowl LVII will be hosted at State Farm Stadium on Sun Feb 12, 2023. Lets start with the Kansas City Chiefs it was a come back game of sorts for them in the AFC Championship getting a game winning field goal to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20.

#2 Patrick Mahomes under center in Sunday’s AFC Championship game threw for 326 yards, 29-43 and two touchdowns, he might not had the traditional Mahomes performance but it was good enough to get the Chiefs to the Super Bowl.

#3 The Cincinnati Bengals Joe Burrow threw good enough to win but the Bengals chose to throw with under six minutes left in the game and the score tied at the Kanas City 16 yard line but Burrow threw for an interception rather than keep the ball on the ground and lost after turning the ball over to the Chiefs who later kicked for a game winning field goal.

#4 For the Philadelphia Eagles and quarterback Jalen Hurts they handled the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field with lots of offense in a 31-7 ground game affair with Hurts throwing 15-25 for 121 yards and no touchdowns. What was surprising was that Hurts threw no touchdowns but landslided the San Francisco defense all afternoon.

#5 Tony this will be a Super Bowl that will have all the characters of the Chiefs and the Eagles talking big game issues on media days for the next two weeks.

On San Francisco 49ers podcast with David Zizmor:

#1 After the first seven minutes of the game it was over. In the first two minutes San Francisco 49ers Brock Purdy got the elbow injury and the offense for the rest of game was three and out.

#2 With 49ers back up quarterback Josh Johnson there is a reason why he’s been with multiple teams he fumbled and he couldn’t get the 49ers down field and the Philadelphia Eagles defense were daring Johnson to throw the ball.

#3 Looking back on the season the 49ers before Sunday’s NFC Championship loss to the Eagles, the miracle of Purdy getting the 49ers here after 12 straight wins and ten straight wins under Purdy no one would have expected Purdy to get this far.
