A 29-yard field goal from Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, his fourth of the game, has sent Super Bowl LVIII into overtime as the final game of the 2023-24 NFL season is squared, 19-19, with the San Francisco 49ers. It is the first postseason game played, which allow both teams to possess the ball at least once.
Two touchdowns from Jauan Jennings and two field goals of 50+ yards off the leg of Jake Moody had the 49ers holding the lead late into the fourth quarter, but the Chiefs went 64 yards in 1:50 to tie the game with 3 seconds remaining.
Previously tied at 16-16 with less than 2 minutes to play, Moody booted a 53-yard field goal to give the Niners the lead. He kicked a then-Super Bowl-record 55-yard field goal early in the second quarter, only for that mark to be broken by Butker, who found the uprights from 57 yards out in the third quarter.
Jennings, who pushed the 49ers ahead, 16-13, in the fourth quarter (after a missed extra point) with his receiving score, also contributed to the game’s first touchdown with a 21-yard pass back to Christian McCaffrey in the second quarter.
The Super Bowl turned on a dime late in the the third quarter with Kansas City converting a fumbled punt in the red zone into a 16-yard touchdown pass from Patrick Mahomes to Marquez Valdes-Scantling just one play later. The Chiefs had been held out of the end zone until that point, taking their first lead of the game.
McCaffrey and Kansas City running back Isiah Pacheco both fumbled in the game, the latter during a second-quarter red zone trip.
Will the Chiefs win a second straight Super Bowl, or will the 49ers hoist their first Lombardi Trophy since 1995? Keep it locked to CBS Sports throughout the rest of the evening!
