On the day of February 12, 2023 the Kansas City Chiefs played against the Philadelphia Eagles for the Super Bowl championship. The Super Bowl game was played in Glendale, Arizona this year and kickoff started at 3:30 pm. Unfortunately the Philadelphia Eagles lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 35-38 due to a bad call by the refs. The ref called a holding on #24 James Bradberry for supposedly holding on to #9 JuJu Smith’s waist. Even though the Eagles lost, both teams were competing till the clock ran out. The Eagles put up a fight till the end but were unlucky to get the win for their team. Also, the brothers Jason and Travis Kelce both played against each other in the Superbowl this year. Even though Travis won it all, he still showed good sportsmanship towards his brother Jason.

Patrick Mahomes responded back to Jalen Hurts by getting back a touchdown 3 minutes later at 7:03 in the quarter and making it tied with the extra point that Bukter scored in the goalpost.
