The Kansas City Chiefs are Super Bowl champions for the first time in 50 years, defeating the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20.
The Chiefs overcame a 20-10 second-half deficit, scoring touchdowns on three consecutive drives in the fourth quarter.
Below, we tracked the biggest plays and moments from the big game.
The stars were on hand for the big game, including DJ Khaled, Jay Z, Keegan-Michael Key, and Shaquille O’Neal.
Meek Mill, Jerry Rice, Sebastian Bear-McClard, Emily Ratajkowski, and Alex Rodriguez were also on hand.
Jeremy Renner, Paul Rudd, and Miles Teller were as well.
There was a tribute before the game for Kobe Bryant, his daughter, and the other seven people who died in the helicopter crash one week before.
And we’re off!
If you had Robbie Gould as the first player to score in the Super Bowl, congrats! Gould opened the scoring with a first-quarter field goal.
The Chiefs set up their first touchdown when coach Andy Reid went for it on fourth-and-1 near the goal line, ran a trick play, and picked up the first down.
Patrick Mahomes then put the Chiefs on the board with a run from the 1-yard line.
Jimmy Garoppolo took a big hit early in the second quarter and gave up an interception. This led to a field goal for the Chiefs and a 10-3 lead.
But the 49ers quickly answered with a seven-play, 80-yard drive that ended with a Kyle Juszczyk broken tackle for a touchdown.
It looked as if the 49ers would take the lead at the end of the first half, but a 42-yard pass to George Kittle was called back when he was flagged for pass interference.
Kittle did not appear to agree with the call.
After a relatively brisk one-hour, 19-minute first half, it was 10-10 at the midway mark.
Then it was time for the real reason everybody was watching the Super Bowl — the refs … Wait. No. That’s not it.
Oh right. The halftime show with Jennifer Lopez and Shakira.
J-Lo’s daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, stole the show.
People on social media had a field day with Shakira’s tongue move.
