The Chiefs were up against it, 20-10 down, but made a strong comeback into the game following a fine display from their star man Patrick Mahomes. The win was even sweeter for the fact that they had already won twice on this post-season run after being at least 10 behind.
At third & 15 on Chiefs' own 35-yard line, Mahomes evaded a tackle and launched a 44-yard throw to find Tyreek Hill to start the ball rolling. A touchdown from Travis Kelce saw the deficit cut to three. After shutting down 49ers response, Mahomes found Williams, who scored the touchdown which had to be reviewed. The Chiefs were awarded the point, which also helped them take the lead. Williams then sprinted in for his second touchdown to cap a memorable win for Cheifs.
