If you’re taking part in Super Bowl squares contests, here’s everything you need to know from the third quarter.

The 2024 Super Bowl has wrapped up the third quarter and the Kansas City Chiefs lead the San Francisco 49ers by a score of 13-10. If you’re playing Super Bowl squares, that means the third quarter prize goes to whomever had the Chiefs with the number 3 and the 49ers with the number 0.

The game has remained a tough defensive contest, and turnovers have flipped it dramatically. The Chiefs had cut the 49ers lead to 10-6 on a field goal and the two sides then exchanged punts. On the Chiefs punt, 49ers special-teamer Darrell Luter had the ball bounce off of him. Returner Ray-Ray McCloud tried to recover the ball since it was live, but he couldn’t get a hand on it and the Chiefs recovered. Patrick Mahomes followed with a strike to a wide-open Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a go-ahead touchdown.

The 49ers have the ball at the Chiefs 42 heading into the fourth quarter.
