‘I Give God the Glory’—Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs Thank God After Winning the Super Bowl

Christian NFL Players From Both Teams Entered the Super Bowl

Heading into the 2024 Super Bowl, a number of players from both the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers were outspoken about their faith.

In addition to Chiefs players, Patrick Mahomes and Harrison Butker, and 49ers players, Brock Purdy and Christian McCaffrey, other NFL players have talked about God in their lives—on and off the field.

Defensive end Arik Armstead plays for the 49ers and said, “[Faith] is super important to me. That’s the foundation, my backbone, everything that I believe in. My family instilled that into me at a young age, and we grew up in the church.”

Chiefs cornerback L’Jarius Sneed said, “With God, anything is possible.” His parents were both incarcerated early in Sneed’s life. His mom shared more about her own faith. “First, give honor to God, who is the head of our lives,” she said. “Where we are is only because of who God is.”

The Kansas City Chiefs Celebrate Their Third Super Bowl Win in 5 Years

Football fans are accustomed to seeing red and gold confetti covering the field after a Super Bowl. In the last five years, the Kansas City Chiefs have appeared at the Super Bowl four times.

The defending champions defeated the San Francisco 49ers in overtime, 25-22, in 2024.

In 2023, the Chiefs took home a close win over the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35. The Chiefs took a break from the Super Bowl in 2022—while the Los Angeles Rams defeated the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Tampa Bay Buccanneers won the Super Bowl in 2021 over the defending champions Kansas City Chiefs. In 2020, the Chiefs won over the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20.

The first time the Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl was in 1970, against the Minnesota Vikings, 23-7.
