Three takeaways from Sunday night’s thrilling Super Bowl between the Chiefs and 49ers:

Pride of Oak Forest.49ers running back Tevin Coleman, who graduated from Oak Forest High School, spent the last two weeks rehabbing a shoulder injury he suffered in the NFC championship game. He didn’t practice in full until Friday — and then started Sunday. He ran five times for 28 yards.

Bad call. With 14 seconds left in the half, 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw deep down the right side to star tight end George Kittle — and gained 42 yards. The play would have given the 49ers the ball at the Chiefs’ 13, was nullified, though. Kittle was flagged for offensive pass interference, though replay showed there was minimal contact between the tight end and safety Daniel Sorenson.

Running receiver. 49ers rookie receiver Deebo Samuel had 53 rushing yards — and the Super Bowl record for a receiver — by the end of the first drive of the second half. The run-first 49ers used him as an outside weapon, first on a 32-yard end around in the first quarter and then on a trick play — and end-around pass —that he would up keeping.
