An unexpected weapon stepped up in the Kansas City Chiefs‘ 25-22 Super Bowl overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers, as Mecole Hardman was on the receiving end of the game-winning toss. It’s fair to say that Kansas City’s paid off, but it was such a big moment, Hardman didn’t even realize he was at the center of it.
Check out what Mahomes and Hardman said, here:
Hardman had a total of zero scrimmage yards in the postseason entering the Super Bowl, and infamously fumbled out of the end zone against the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round. Hardman caught just 14 passes for 118 yards and zero touchdowns in six regular-season games for Kansas City this season. In Super Bowl LVIII, he caught three passes for 57 yards and the touchdown that mattered most. Even if he didn’t realize it in the moment.
