The Kansas City Chiefs have delivered history as Patrick Mahomes wrapped it with finesse. With the triumph, the Chiefs secured back-to-back titles and clinched their third championship under Mahomes’ skill set. In a dazzling display, Mahomes led the Chiefs on a game-winning drive in overtime, culminating in a touchdown pass to Mecole Hardman to clinch the 2024 Super Bowl. With that, numerous narratives swirl around Mahomes and the ongoing GOAT conversation. However, a noteworthy parallel emerges involving LeBron James and putting the city of Angels in the winning light.

Struggling with inconsistency throughout this season, the Lakers are just managing to edge the playoff-qualifying teams.
