(Reuters) – The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Francisco 49ers 25-22 in overtime to secure their second consecutive Super Bowl title on Sunday.

Following are some off-field and on-field records that were broken on the night:


* Around 123.4 million people tuned in on TV and streaming platforms to watch the Chiefs defeat the 49ers at the Super Bowl, making it the most-watched Super Bowl ever, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings released by CBS on Monday.

* The audience for the Super Bowl grew from last year when the game drew a record 115.1 million viewers.


* Ahead of the Super Bowl, the American Gaming Association predicted a record 67.8 million American adults to bet a combined $23.1 billion on the matchup between the Chiefs and 49ers.


* The Super Bowl went to overtime for just the second time on Sunday.

* With a playing time of 74 minutes and 57 seconds, it was the longest Super Bowl game in history.
