For the first time in 50 years, the Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions. They defeated the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 Sunday night in Miami, coming from behind in the fourth quarter.

How did they do it? The Chiefs trailed 20-10 before quarterback Patrick Mahomes led them to three touchdowns in the final six minutes of the game. The go-ahead score was a 5-yard touchdown pass to Damien Williams with just under three minutes left. “We never lost faith,” Mahomes, the game’s MVP, told Fox Sports. “I think that’s the biggest thing. Everybody on this team, no one had their head down, and we believed in each other, and that’s what we preached all year long.” Kansas City won its only other Super Bowl title in 1970.

What else are people talking about? In addition to this year’s Super Bowl commercials, many viewers thought Jennifer Lopez and Shakira’s sexually charged halftime performance crossed a line.

    Being a Chiefs Fan we watched the game.  The advertizers wasted their money on me and my family as we saw none of it.  We don't have to worry about sorting out the good from the discusting commercials as we tuned away from it. Glad we did not experience Lopeze's and Sharkira's worldly garbage.

    We changed the channel and watched Colombo on MEtv instead of the halftime show.

    The halftime "show" was mercifully and intentionally missed by our family.  I wonder how long we will be able to stomach football given the accompanying porn.  I hardly want my dollars/time given to the exploitation and degradation of women.  We have better things to do.
