Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs are back-to-back Super Bowl champions.
Mahomes threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman with 3 seconds left in overtime, and the Chiefs rallied to beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 on Sunday in the second overtime game in Super Bowl history, becoming the first repeat champs in 19 years and ninth overall.
After days of speculation and anticipation, Taylor Swift finished her journey across nine time zones —hurrying from a concert in Tokyo to land at Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday — before making it to Las Vegas before the big game. On Sunday, she was seen in a private box at Allegiant Stadium box, chatting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Swift’s last song was still ringing in the ears of thousands of fans at the Tokyo Dome on Saturday night when the singer rushed to a private jet at Haneda airport, presumably embarking on an intensely scrutinized journey to see Kelce.
With a final bow at the end of her sold-out show, clad in a blue sequined outfit, the crowd screaming, strobe lights pulsing, confetti falling, Swift disappeared beneath the stage and her journey to the other side of the world began.
About an hour after the end of the concert, AP journalists were near Haneda’s private jet area when minivans drove up and someone went inside the gate area, as four to five people carrying large black umbrellas obstructed the view of the person.
Swift has been dating Chiefs star Travis Kelce through much of the football season — a relationship that has been lucrative to the NFL and the Chiefs.
