Moreover, Mahomes led the Chief to victory in Super Bowl LIV in the 2019 season, where the team defeated the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 20-31. The victory was the first time the Chiefs have won the Super Bowl since 1970. Additionally, Mahomes won the Super Bowl MVP for his performance during the game.
