Super Bowl 2023: Chiefs defeat Eagles, Rihanna's pregnancy reveal and memorable ads
What you missed at the Super Bowl:
- The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-35, in the 57th Super Bowl at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
- The Chiefs dominated the second half, scoring three touchdowns to the Eagles' one TD and a field goal. The game was partly decided on a controversial defensive holding call against the Eagles with less than two minutes remaining, prompting a torrent of online backlash.
- Multiple Super Bowl records were set, including the longest punt return, by the Chiefs' Kadarius Toney, and the most rushing yards by a quarterback, with the Eagles' Jalen Hurts rushing for 70.
- Despite playing with an injured ankle, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, the game's MVP, threw for 182 yards and three touchdowns.
- Rihanna headlined the halftime show. A representative for RiRi confirmed to NBC News that she is pregnant again. Fans speculated that the artist might be pregnant after she cradled her midsection several times during her performance.
- This year's ads featured plenty of celebrities, but even the most anticipated ads, including two from a Christian evangelical group promoting a website called HeGetsUs.com, failed to generate much buzz on social media. Fox said commercial spots for the Super Bowl sold out, with peak prices at more than $7 million for 30-second spots, according to CNBC.
