Eagles and Chiefs face off in Super Bowl LVII, Rihanna plays halftime show
Points have been plentiful in Super Bowl LVII, which got off to an intense start Sunday, with strong offensive displays showing why the Eagles and the Chiefs got to this highly anticipated matchup.
Both teams scored touchdowns on their opening drives of the game. Jalen Hurts made up for a costly fumble early in the second quarter, which helped the Chiefs tie the game at 14 apiece, with his second rushing touchdown of the evening a few minutes later that gave the Eagles a 21-14 lead. They added to it with a 35-yard field goal to go into halftime up 24-14.
Chiefs fans were holding their breaths, when, with about 1:30 to go in the first half, reigning MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes came up limping badly following a tackle on a third-down play. Mahomes, who has been dealing with a high-ankle sprain since the divisional round of the playoffs, appeared to be grimacing in pain as he came off the field.

Meanwhile, with his 18-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce passed Rob Gronkowski for the second-most receiving touchdowns in playoff history, with 16. San Francisco 49ers legend Jerry Rice holds the record with 22.
Prior to the game, Cody Benjamin of CBS Sports wrote that the game “features two of the most prolific offenses the NFL has seen this year, with Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts set to square off in a battle of MVP candidates. Not only that, but the championship showdown will pit Chiefs coach Andy Reid against Philadelphia, the city in which he built his NFL career; and Pro Bowl brothers Travis and Jason Kelce against each other for a chance at their second respective Lombardi trophies.”
History was also made Sunday by Mahomes and Hurts, marking the first time that a Super Bowl featured two starting Black quarterbacks.
The halftime show was headlined by Grammy Award-winning pop star Rihanna. Her performance had been highly anticipated because it has been nearly seven years since she last performed on stage. She has also not released an album since 2016’s “Anti.”
Grammy-winning country music star Chris Stapleton performed the pregame national anthem, and Grammy-winning R&B artist Babyface performed “America the Beautiful” before kickoff.
