The Kansas City Chiefs have been crowned this year's Super Bowl LVIII winners.
Meanwhile, the 49ers have won a total of five Super Bowls in its history, with their first big win being 1981.
The 49ers appeared to have it in the bag early on in tonight game and long held a 10 point lead over their opponents, but the Chiefs eventually came back with a vengeance - ultimately leading to the game going to overtime as both teams ended on 19 points.
This is only the second time in the Super Bowl's history that a game has gone to overtime; the first time being at Super Bowl LI between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons in 2016.
And Chiefs' hard work paid off tonight as they successfully defended their Super Bowl title and take home the trophy again.
People have since shared their reactions to the Chiefs' win online.
"Oh my God I’m f**king crying," one football fan tweeted. "The Chiefs won."
"What a game. Niners played extremely well. But Mahommes, Kelce... Just wow. #SuperBowl," said a second.
A different person wrote: "Hell of a game #SuperBowl. Both teams should be proud, but only one winner. Congrats to the @Chiefs for a hell of a win! @49ers don't sell yourselves short. Next year is a new year!!!"
Speaking in an interview following their win, Chiefs star Patrick Mahomes gushed: "I've got to give God the glory, man.
"He challenged us to be better and I'm proud of my guys. This is awesome. It's legendary."
Swift was spotted in the stands with Blake Lively and Ice Spice, as well as Kelce's family.
At one point, Swift was seen chugging a beer as the crowd cheered her on.
Their success will have landed the rapper with a $2.3 million payout.
