Mahomes had failed to inspire in the early stages of the game with two interceptions putting a blotch on his record.

The 49ers put the first points on the board with a field goal before the Chiefs struck back with a touchdown thanks to a run from Mahomes.

However, the young superstar brought the X factor in the final quarter as his pair of touchdown passes swung the balance in the Chiefs’ favour.

He was the favourite to claim the MVP award before kick-off and is tipped to be the NFL’s next biggest thing for years to come.
