Video: Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes called crucial ‘Wasp’ play that turned around Super Bowl
The Kansas City Chiefs managed to pull off yet another comeback against the San Francisco 49ers to secure a win in Super Bowl 54. While there were a number of factors that led to their win, the turning point of the game came with a play call from quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
The Chiefs found themselves down 20-10 midway through the fourth quarter. That was when Mahomes called a play that led to a 44-yard bomb to wide receiver Tyreek Hill, via NFL Films:

The clip is indicative of just the type of mindset Kansas City had coming into this game. They had pulled off unlikely comebacks in the previous two rounds of the playoffs and stayed confident despite the Super Bowl deficit.
Although Mahomes and the Chiefs found themselves down once again, it seems they even had a feeling that all they needed was one big play to turn the game around. Head coach Andy Reid has addressed his plans to stick around for the long haul thanks to having a quarterback of Patrick Mahomes’ caliber around to make his job easier, and this video shows why there’s so much faith in the stud QB.
