NFL Fans Think Super Bowl 58 Was “Rigged” After Suspicious New Video Suggests Chiefs Got A Free 1st Down On Game-Tying Drive (VIDEO)
Conspiracy theorists have something else to latch onto after the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl.
Late in the fourth quarter, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense were matriculating the ball down the field in an effort to win or tie the game.
One play showed Mahomes scrambling out of the pocket for minimal yards on first down, clearly not enough for a fresh set of downs.
One video posted by fans showed that the play ended up being a first down even though he never made it that far.
On a game-changing play, Mahomes hit Travis Kelce for 22 yards on third-and-7 to drive the Chiefs deep into 49ers territory.
Harrison Butker would eventually be called on to make the score 19-19 with three seconds left in the fourth quarter as the 49ers would kneel and the game would head into overtime.
Mahomes’ legend continues to grow, as his overtime drive led to a Super Bowl LVIII win over the San Francisco 49ers, 25-22, on Sunday night in Las Vegas. The Chiefs defended their Super Bowl title, winning back-to-back Vince Lombardi Trophies and collecting their third ring in the past five seasons.
Mahomes finished the game with 333 yards on 34-for-46 through the air with two touchdowns and one interception, while rushing for a team-high 66 yards on nine carries.
