Mecole Hardman hauled in a 3-yard touchdown in overtime to help the Kansas City Chiefs claim a 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.

Hardman finished with three catches for 57 yards and joined teammate and fellow former Bulldog Malik Herring on the winning squad. Herring finished with a tackle in the Chiefs’ victory.

Receiver Chris Conley had one catch for 18 yards, two special teams tackles and downed a punt on the 1 yard line for the 49ers. In addition, tight end Charlie Woerner (one special teams tackle) and defensive lineman Robert Beal suited up for San Francisco.

A total of five former Bulldogs suited up in Super Bowl LVIII making it 23 consecutive years that at least one former Georgia player has appeared on a Super Bowl team.
