On Sunday night, the NFL played its 285th and final game of the 2023 season. And the best was truly saved for last. It took nearly 75 minutes, but in the end, the Kansas City Chiefs recorded a 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.
A lot of Super Bowls have been forgotten over time, but this one won’t, for several reasons. For one, this game was significant from a historical perspective. The Chiefs became the first team in 19 years to repeat as champions. Patriots Mahomes joined Tom Brady and Joe Montana as the only players with three Super Bowl MVP awards. Andy Reid joined Bill Belichick, Chuck Noll, Bill Walsh and Joe Gibbs as the only head coaches to win three Super Bowls.
History aside, this was just a crazy night and game. Let’s review the five things we’ll remember most about Super Bowl LVIII.
Congrats, you just watched the longest Super Bowl ever! This game was much longer than the Super Bowl’s only other overtime matchup, which ended when James White’s game-winning touchdown gave the Patriots the win over Atlanta in Super Bowl LI with 11:02 left in overtime. This was the seventh-longest game in NFL history, a game that lasted 74 minutes and 57 seconds.
