Let’s now preview the big game coming up this weekend between the new AFC Champions the Kansas City Chiefs and their opponents, the NFC Champions the San Francisco 49ers.
Kansas City Chiefs V San Francisco 49ers
This week’s Superbowl will see Kansas City contest their first final for 50 years and making their third appearance in total in the big game, while their opponents San Francsico will be in their seventh final and hoping to become the joint most successful team in Superbowl history by claiming their sixth victory.
Kansas City’s only victory in the Superbowl came over 50 years ago when they defeated the Minnesota Vikings in the big game, and their only other appearance came in Superbowl I when they were well beaten by the Green Bay Packers.
San Francisco though have a much deeper Superbowl pedigree with the famous teams led by four-time winner Joe Montana and Steve Young contributing all of their five Superbowl wins (1982, 1985, 1989, 1990 and 1995).
It promises to be an exciting game between the two and the action gets underway at 11.30pm UK Time on Sunday 2nd February. UK viewers can watch the game live on the BBC and also on Sky Sports.
Kansas City Stats
- Regular Season – 12-4 – Won the AFC West – Secured 2nd Seed in the AFC
- Playoffs – Wildcard Round – Bye
- Playoffs – Divisional Round – Houston Texans 31 – 51 Kansas City Chiefs
- Playoffs – AFC Conference Championship – Tennessee Titans 24 – 35 Kansas City Chiefs
Led by Patrick Mahomes and a spectacular offense that includes Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, the Chiefs ran out comfortable winners of the AFC West losing three games over the regular season which saw them finish as the second seeds in the AFC behind Baltimore.
Patrick Mahomes missed two regular season games, but the quarterback still posted over 4,000 yard s and 26 touchdowns, for just five interceptions, also recording notably fewer sacks and fumbles from the previous year.
Kansas City have been equally proficient on offense as last season, but they have made fewer mistakes and also improved a great deal on defense meaning that they went one step better in the playoffs than last season’s Divisional Championship loss to New England.
Kansas City Chiefs – Star Men
- Patrick Mahomes – Quarterback
- Tyreek Hill – Wide Receiver
- Travis Kelce – Tight End
- Mecole Hardman – Wide Receiver
- Chris Jones – Defensive Tackle
- Tyrann Mathieu – Safety
San Francisco Stats
- Regular Season – 13-3 – Won the NFC West – Secured 1st Seed in the NFC
- Playoffs – Wildcard Round – Bye
- Playoffs – Divisional Round – Minnesota Vikings 10 – 27 San Francisco 49ers
- Playoffs – NFC Conference Championship – Green Bay Packers 20 – 37 San Francisco 49ers
After five seasons of performing well below par, the San Francisco 49ers finally woke up in the 2019-20 season, winning 13 of their regular season game to clinch their first NFC West title since 2012. Built on a rock solid defense that has Joey Bosa as its lead pass rusher and Richard Sherman prowling the secondary, the 49ers also boast an effective offense led by the incisive quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.
George Kittle has emerged as one of the stars of the team this season, with the powerful tight end not just being a dominant force in the blocking game, but also weighing in with some key catches and touchdowns too. Add to that Raheem Mostert’s emergence as a real threat in the running game, especially during the playoffs and it is easy to see why the 49ers were always fancied to be the AFC’s representatives in the Superbowl.
It is going to be interesting to see how the 49ers quality defense copes with the explosive offense of the Kansas City Chiefs, although it may well be how the 49ers offense gets on against an improving Chiefs defense that could eventually decide the outcome of the game.
San Francisco 49ers – Key Men
- Jimmy Garoppolo – Quarterback
- George Kittle – Tight End
- Emmanuel Sanders – Wide Receiver
- Raheem Mostert – Running Back
- Nick Bosa – Defensive End
- Richard Sherman – Cornerback
Superbowl LIV Prediction and Tips
Match Prediction – Kansas City Chiefs 38 – San Francisco 49ers 27
I can see a Superbowl where we do see a larger than average number of points being scored. The Chiefs have managed to move the ball and score points against some of the best defenses in the NFL over the years and I can see them being able to do that against the 49ers because they have so many ways to hurt you.
I also feel that the 49ers offense has the ability to score against the Chiefs defense, but I don’t think the 49ers offense is quite as explosive as what Kansas City’s is and I feel that may well be the decisive factor in this game as I believe if the Chiefs can get ahead by two scores at any point in the game, especially from the second quarter onwards, then the 49ers could find themselves really up against it.
