Disappointment 

The 49ers’ Darrell Luter Jr. had a punt bounce off his leg and Ray-Ray McCloud tried scooping it up instead of falling on the ball. The fumble set up a Chiefs touchdown. 

Underappreciated champions

Give acknowledgement to all the Chiefs’ much-maligned drop-plagued receivers: Hardman (57 yards, TD), Justin Watson (54), Rashee Rice (39) and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (20, TD). 

Key statistic 

10 Points the Chiefs trailed by, 10-0, meaning Mahomes has overcome a double-digit shortage in each of his Super Bowl triumphs. 

Statement of the evening 

“Tonight I’ll rejoice, at the parade I’m gonna celebrate and I’ll do whatever I can to return to this match next year — aim for that three-peat.”

— Patrick Mahomes
