If the Kansas City Chiefs were going to end their 50-year Super Bowl drought, they were going to need Patrick Mahomes to complete his third comeback of the playoffs. And as he has done many times in his young career, he delivered when his team needed him most.

Trailing 20-10 heading into the fourth quarter, Mahomes overcame two interceptions to lead Kansas City to the second-largest comeback in Super Bowl history. The Chiefs outscored the San Francisco 49ers 21-0 with Damien Williams clinching the win with a 38-yard touchdown run.

The 10-point comeback by the Chiefs was the biggest since the New England Patriots overcame a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI. Unfortunately for Kyle Shanahan, he was a member of the coaching staff during both games.

Here are some of the top Twitter moments from Mahomes’ heroic performance as he continues to cement his status as the top quarterback in the NFL.
