The game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII produced one of the most entertaining performances that we, the fans, will remember for a long time.
The Chiefs won the game in a thrilling nail-biting contest by a score of 38–35, and their superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes has contributed another memorable performance. Patrick played despite having a sprained ankle issue, and last night his ankle caused some trouble.
At a moment during the game last night, the quarterback had to leave the field for a few moments to receive an instant treatment to continue the game.

Later, while receiving treatment, the champion’s face revealed the agonizing pain and gave the fans a fright. However, after taking treatment, he was able to continue and snatch the victory for the team a second time.
Mahomes scored three touchdowns and accumulated 182 yards of passing with a 77.7% completion rate in the historic victory.
Prior to last night’s game, the Chiefs star suffered an ankle injury in the divisional round game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played the next game against the Cincinnati Bengals despite not being 100% fit for the AFC championship game.
Though he wasn’t at his full potential, the five-time pro bowler led his team to their third Super Bowl title and became the Super Bowl MVP for the second time. Now it appears that his hard work and dedication were well rewarded.
