The 2024 Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will see two-time Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes face Brock Purdy.
Mahomes has raised the Vince Lombardi Trophy twice in his seven-year career, winning the MVP both times as well.
The Super Bowl LVIII appearance marks the fourth time Mahomes reaches the final. According to Statmuse, this ties him with NFL legends such as Joe Montana and Peyton Manning as the quarterbacks with the third highest amount of Super Bowl appearances.
Mahomes, 28, first led the Chiefs to glory in 2019, when Kansas City outdueled the 49ers 31-20 at Super Bowl LIV. At the time, San Francisco was led by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
Mahomes led his team back to the big game the following season, but fell to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-9. The Chiefs fell short of the Super Bowl in 2021 but won their second ring in four years when they topped the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35 at Super Bowl LVII.
The Chiefs struggled during the regular season this year, riding an 11-6 record to a Wild Card spot in the AFC. In the Wild Card round, Mahomes led his team to a 26-7 win over the Miami Dolphins. They followed that up by defeating Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills 27-24, after which he trolled Bills fans on social media.
Then, Mahones took out 2024 MVP-favorite Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens 17-10 on his way to his fourth Super Bowl in the past five seasons.
Mahomes and the Chiefs will look to retain their title and repeat when they face the 49ers on Feb. 11. The Chiefs are looking to become the first NFL franchise to win back-to-back Super Bowls since the New England Patriots in 2003-04.
With a win, Mahomes would join Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman, Brady and Montana as the only starting quarterbacks to win the Super Bowl at least three times. Earl Morrall, primarily a backup quarterback, also achieved the feat.
