Through the majority of the night, the San Francisco 49ers looked like the more dominant team, having held the Kansas City Chiefs’ offense to just three points at halftime. But with fumbles, penalties and a few mistakes with special teams, the Chiefs found a way to squeeze out a win 25-22 in Las Vegas. 

Fans watched the Super Bowl at the East Cut in San Francisco near Oracle Park. Emotions were at an all-time high, especially during the Apple Music Halftime Show. Near the fourth quarter, fans still felt confident in how the 49ers were playing. Yet, once Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs scored in overtime, fans were sick to their stomachs and left the watch party.
