Highlights of the Kansas City Chiefs against the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in one of the greatest Super Bowls of all time, with Patrick Mahomes defying injury to win his second title.

The Chiefs trailed by 10 at half-time, with Mahomes limping his way into the locker room after aggravating the ankle injury he picked up earlier in the playoffs. But, after the break, Mahomes - named Super Bowl MVP - led his team on four-consecutive scoring drives to stun the Eagles.

Mahomes threw three touchdowns, but his stat line was otherwise a modest one, completing 21 of 27 passes for 182 yards, with Kansas City's offense kept off the field for large chunks of the game.

The best plays from Patrick Mahomes' Super Bowl MVP performance, all on an injured ankle

Philadelphia dominated time of possession, while quarterback Jalen Hurts himself enjoyed an incredible outing on the game's biggest stage - throwing for over 300 yards and running in three TDs - but the game swung in the second half as Mahomes carried Kansas City on his back.

Jalen Hurts' best plays in a Super Bowl that saw him get four touchdowns, including three rushing touchdowns

The Chiefs nudged in front for the first time with 12 minutes left in the fourth quarter as Mahomes found a wide-open Kadarius Toney for the go-ahead score and, after a badly timed three-and-out on offense from the Eagles, KC swiftly found the end zone for a second time inside three minutes.

Toney had a say in proceedings again, with a Super Bowl-record 65-yard punt return to set the Chiefs up at the Philadelphia five-yard line, before another blown coverage allowed Mahomes to find Skyy Moore all alone this time for the TD.

Kadarius Toney ran the longest-ever punt return in a Super Bowl to setup a touchdown for Skyy Moore.

But back came the Eagles, with an unruffled Hurts finding DeVonta Smith deep down the left sideline for 45 yards to set up his third rushing score of the game. Hurts then hurled himself over the goal line for the game-tying two-point conversion too, with five minutes and 15 seconds left.

One of the most remarkable aspects of Mahomes' performance was his ability to scramble despite his banged up ankle, as he rushed for 44 yards on six carries, and it was one such run - this one for 26 yards - that helped set Kansas City up at the Eagles 17-yard line just before the two-minute warning.

With time running out, Eagles fans will point to a questionable 'pass interference' call on James Bradberry against JuJu Smith-Schuster that granted the Chiefs a fresh set of downs and allowed them to run off more of the clock before Harrison Butker ultimately booted the game-winning field goal with eight seconds left.

There was time left for one last play, but Hurts' desperate deep heave down the field fell incomplete to end a Super Bowl classic.

Nick Sirianni and Jason Kelce showed their emotion during the national anthem ahead of Super Bowl LVII.

The game exploded into life early in the first quarter, hinting at the entertainment to come, as the Eagles scored on their opening drive for the 11th time this season (leading the NFL), with the Chiefs answering back almost immediately.

Mahomes, untroubled by his ankle issue in the early exchanges, hooked up with his favourite target, Travis Kelce, for an 18-yard score to tie things up at 7-7 and make it 16 career postseason TDs for the tight end (second all-time, behind Jerry Rice's 22).

An emotional Travis Kelce said there wasn't much he could say to his brother Jason after beating him in Super Bowl LVII, other than that he loved him.

The Chiefs missed the chance to take the lead later in the first quarter as Butker doinked his first field goal attempt off the upright, and Philadelphia nudged ahead again to start the second as Hurts, with all day to throw, found AJ Brown for a massive 44-yard touchdown.

A Hurts error on their next series, however - Nick Bolton forcing a fumbling and running it back for the 36-yard scoop and score - again levelled things up, but the Eagles QB swiftly made amends with his second rushing touchdown of the first half.

TJ Edwards landed awkwardly on Patrick Mahomes' ankle when sacking the Chiefs quarterback.

Philadelphia added to that lead, with a Jake Elliott field goal to end the first half, but not before Mahomes' ankle got banged up when being chased down by TJ Edwards on a scramble.

He limped, grimacing into the locker room, only to return after Rihanna's half-time spectacular in inspired form, firing the Chiefs to a memorable victory.

Travis Kelce felt no one believed the Chiefs were going to win the Super Bowl and Patrick Mahomes said everyone stepped up in the locker room at halftime to inspire their epic win over the Eagles

Chiefs quarterback, Patrick Mahomes: "I told you all this week there's nothing that's going to keep me off that football field.

"I just want to shout out my team-mates, we challenge each other, it took everybody to win this football game.

"I won't say dynasty yet - we're not done!"

Former NFL quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick, on Sky Sports: "The combination of Andy Reid calling the plays and Patrick Mahomes making them is the very best in the league.

"How many moments did we find ourselves in that second half watching him play and just shaking our head at the things he was able to do on the field, with the bad ankle?

"When they needed to play he just continued to make them.

"I think these young guns are all going to be chasing Patrick for years to come. He is cementing his legacy as potentially one of if not the greatest of all time... he's on his way."
