ALLEGIANT Stadium security stepped up, quickly restraining two pitch invaders during Super Bowl LVIII.
The unruly spectators disturbed the title matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs in the third quarter.Two streakers disturbed Super Bowl LVIII[/caption] The two men ran onto the field having entered from the Kansas City Chiefs’ end zone[/caption] The streakers removed their shirts before being tackled to the ground by security[/caption]
Two men ran onto the field having entered from the Chiefs’ end zone.
They took off his shirt before being tackled to the ground by security.
“Oh, we got people on the field!” CBS color analyst Tony Romo yelled as the incident occurred.
Jim Nantz chimed in, saying: “Oh my goodness, we do! We got a streaker on the other, well…”
And Romo observed: “There’s a partial streaker… Shirt off.”
The ex-NFL quarterback then pointed out the announcers “can’t talk about” the disruptors.
Patrick Mahomes turned around to watch the guards intervene.
The disruption came at an unfortunate time for Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker, who was getting ready to attempt a field goal.
Fortunately for Butker, the incident didn’t last long.
The ex-Georgia Tech standout then hammered home a 57-yarder to reduce Kansas City’s deficit to 10-6 — and set a new record for the longest kick ever made in the Super Bowl.
The streaker episode coincided with the momentum changing in favor of the Chiefs.
A couple of drives later, Mahomes connected with Marquez Valdes-Scantling on a 16-yard touchdown to give the defending champs their first lead of the game.
After the big game, it was confirmed the two streakers were arrested.
The Chiefs had an awful first half, falling behind 10-3 at halftime.
Also, a frustrated Travis Kelce had a sideline bust-up with head coach Andy Reid before the break.
