Patrick Mahomes talks 2nd Super Bowl win, how he wants to be remembered

WATCH: Patrick Mahomes describes the moment he knew the Chiefs won the 2023 Super Bowl

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes spoke with "Good Morning America" from the happiest place on Earth and described the final nail-biting minutes before a game-winning field goal that clinched Sunday night’s Super Bowl victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kansas City Chiefs Patrick Mahomes spoke to "Good Morning America" from Disneyland.

"Dude, that's like the most nervous feeling of all time. I mean, we have a great kicker. But in those moments, you just never know," Mahomes told "Good Morning America" about watching Harrison Butker clinch the final three-point lead from Disneyland, a post-Super Bowl winner’s tradition, where he is celebrating with his family.

Mahomes led the Chiefs to their second Super Bowl win in four years, beating the Eagles 38-35 in a comeback victory Sunday night in Glendale, Arizona.

"I appreciate it so much more, man," he told "GMA" on how this win compares to the first. "Whenever you deal with failure and losing the AFC championship game and losing a Super Bowl you don't know how much you'll appreciate the next one. And to do it with a brand-new team, I couldn't be more thankful."

Mahomes led the Chiefs back to victory overcoming a 24-14 deficit at halftime.

Despite reaggrivating is right high ankle sprain in the second quarter, Mahomes said, "It's all about taking it one play at a time. That's all you can control, and that's what we did."

"I didn't feel good," he continued, "but I wasn't going to come out of the game. At the end of the day you have to go out there and leave everything on the football field and I tried to do that and it was able to get enough to get a win."

The fourth quarter field goal and final play of Super Bowl 57 came down to a Chiefs field goal in the waning seconds.

"You're just holding on for those eight seconds until the game's over and then after that, it's just celebration," the now-two-time Super Bowl MVP said. "And you just run, hug your teammates, hug your family members because all your hard work paid off."

The 27-year-old father of two was immediately joined on the field by his wife Brittany Mahomes and their soon-to-be 2-year-old daughter Sterling Skye.
