While the 49ers didn’t win the Super Bowl, they still have some of the most loyal and dedicated fans out there. The faithful fans came out in full force this weekend to support the 49ers in a way only the Bay Area can.
The 49ers started the game ahead, but by the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, the teams were tied at 16 to 16 with 2 minutes on the clock. The 49ers secured a three-point lead with a field goal to pull ahead until the Chiefs also scored a field goal with a few seconds to spare, sending the game into overtime. The Kansa City Chiefs secured the win with a touchdown in the final seconds of overtime.
