The first half was solid, but not that thrilling.  Anybody have a favorite commercial?

I have a least favorite - the one with Bryan Cranston.  Super lame.
Have some patience, FFS.

Was putting the kids to bed so not sure if I missed this one showing live, but the Bill Murray Groundhogs day Jeep commercial was fantastic.

That pick should do it.   All that is left for the Chiefs is commercials.

That was very close.  I don't know that it gets overturned regardless of the call on the field.

I feel happy for Reid. He's had a great career, and it was unfortunate that he had that one mark against him.

That mark is gone.. He's a Super Bowl champion.

That is my mistake.  Watching a Super Bowl through the prism of the Lions.

It looks like nobody is going to win a Volvo.

Really happy for Andy Reid.

Now that that's over, we can finally focus on the XFL.

Just saw something on ESPN that with 7:17 to play, leading by 10 and with the Chiefs facing 3rd and 15, San Fran's probability rating for winning the SB was 96%.

So they were saying KC still had a chance!

Otherwise ...

SF didn't get the call on 4 potentially game-changing plays:

1. Kittle offensive pass interference. Had it not been called, SF would have gotten a sure FG before halftime.

2. Still trailing 20-10 about 5 minutes into 4Q, KC put pressure on Garoppolo and he had to scramble out of bounds on third-and-long. KC's Fenton pushed him OB right along the sideline and Garoppolo went flying. Had a personal foul been called, SF would have kept the ball instead of having to punt.

3. On the ensuing drive, defensive interference in end zone by SF's Moore vs Kelce on 3rd-and-10. Had that not been called, KC would have had to settle for a FG that would have made it 20-13.

4. On the go-ahead TD with 2:44 left, Williams took a swing pass from Mahomes and just barely got the tip of the football into the end zone as his right foot hit the sideline at the 1. Replays were not conclusive enough to reverse the call. Had the call been reversed (or had the original call not been a TD), it would have been 4th-and-goal from about the half-yard line and Reid would have faced the very difficult choice of kicking the tying FG with tons of time remaining or going for it against a defense that had been very good on 4th-and-short all season.

I happen to think both interference calls were right on. Kittle definitely pushed off, and Moore definitely plowed through Kelce before the ball got there.

I saw no way to reverse that Williams TD based on all the angles Fox showed. I'm still not sure he got in, and if it had been called short of a TD, I doubt replay would have reversed that. But it was so close that I can't say the refs got it "wrong."

As for the sideline hit ... I wouldn't have thrown the flag, but we've all seen less than that draw a penalty. KC was very fortunate that the official there showed restraint, because the hit was totally unnecessary. Garoppolo had given himself up 11 yards short of the first down marker. It would have been a huge blunder that probably would have sealed SF's victory.

There also were a couple hits on Garoppolo that were darn close to crown of helmet hitting the QB's face/head/neck area. Again KC was fortunate they weren't called.

I'm guessing many Niners fans are upset with the officiating, but as an objective observer I can't really say they were "hosed." And their team sure had plenty of chances to win the game. For example, after the Williams play put KC up 24-20, Garoppolo overthrew an open Sanders for what would have been a go-ahead, 51-yard TD pass with 1:40 left.

The sideline hit was fine.  There were a couple hits on both JG and PM that were questionable, but in the playoffs refs are going to let go.  I thought it was a well refereed game by two teams that played smart, disciplined football.

Kittle definitely pushed off...

I was surprised after halftime when they said that Shanahan was upset with that call. Not only was it obvious interference, but it was really effective interference. I'm not sure they get the completion on that play if he didn't create just enough space with the push off.

One call I don't understand, and it may not have affected the game (and full disclosure, I wanted KC to win), but if the play clock is a 0, and the ball has not been hiked, shouldn't it be a delay of game? Not," well it's at 0 and by the time I walk up closer to the line, and then they snap it, I don't really want to bother anyone, so I will not call it"

The Sam Elliott Doritos commercial was pretty good.
