KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs are Super Bowl Champions for the second time in franchise history, and fans packed a parade route down Grand Boulevard from 6th Street all the way to Union Station, where it culminated with a rally at Union Station on Wednesday afternoon.
Fans got to see all the Chiefs champions scattered across 17 double decker buses, Warpaint and other distinguished guests. You can watch a replay of FOX4’s presentation in the video player at the top of the page.
Here are a couple of panoramic shots from FOX4 digital producer Travis Meier:
The celebration happened just days after the Chiefs pulled off yet another playoff comeback to seize the Lombardi Trophy from the San Francisco 49ers.
Down 20-10 with less than seven minutes to play in the fourth quarter, Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes engineered a comeback with touchdown passes to Travis Kelce and Damien Williams to take a 24-20 lead. Williams left nothing to doubt by taking a carry 38 yards for a touchdown to finish off San Francisco, the final score was 31-20.
The script was familiar to playoff triumphs that preceded the ultimate victory in Miami.
The Houston Texans were all over Kansas City in the AFC Divisional Round, jumping out to a 24-0 lead before Mahomes and company roared back with four touchdowns in the second quarter, three happening in the span of three minutes. It was part of a 51-7 scoring run that led the Chiefs to a 51-31 win.
In the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium, the Chiefs fell behind to the Tennessee Titans 10-0, but again turned things around by halftime to take a 21-17 lead into the break.
The defense put the clamps down on a touted Titans rushing attack, and the offense provided plenty of cushion with two fourth quarter touchdowns, leading to a 35-24 win and the Lamar Hunt Trophy.
The Super Bowl 54 win was the franchise’s first in 50 years. The previous victory came in Super Bowl 4 over the Minnesota Vikings in 1970.
