Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs vs San Francisco 49ers Predictions
The final game of the NFL season, Super Bowl LIV, is set to kick off in a little over 24 hours. The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs are both going through their final preparations. It will be the first time in 50 years that the Chiefs have been in the big game. The 49ers last played in Super Bowl XLVII. Now, these two are set two square off in Miami on February 2.
This game will feature two of the best young QBs in the game in Jimmy Garoppolo and Patrick Mahomes. The 49ers acquired Jimmy G in a trade with the New England Patriots 3 years ago. Meanwhile, the Chiefs went the conventional route with Mahomes. They selected him with the 10th pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

San Francisco 49ers – 38 Kansas City Chiefs – 32
This is one of the closest and most difficult super bowls to predict in recent years. The way that I am looking at this is the 49ers defense is slightly better than the Kansas City Chiefs offense and the one thing that the KC Defense cannot do is stop the run. I see the 9ers controlling the game clock and tempo of the game. By the end of the 3rd quarter, the 49ers will have KC defense gassed and the floodgates will open. Combine that with a few three and outs on the KC offensive side and there you have it a 49er win.

This super bowl pits one of the most explosive offenses against one of the most elite defenses in the game. Yes, usually defense wins championships but the 49ers have not done well against mobile quarterbacks this season as far as points. Patrick Mahomes takes MVP as he puts on a show and lights up this 9ers defense.

It all comes down to this. We have all been waiting for the moment. I will take the Chiefs to win the big game since they have a much better QB in Patrick Mahomes and I think their defense will slow down the Niners rushing attack. I like Raheem Mostert, but he will not run for a ton of yards in this one.

San Francisco – 35 vs. Kansas City Chiefs – 33
There will be many methodical scoring drives, especially by San Francisco, as Raheem Mostert will try to help this teamwork the clock as the New York Giants did in Tampa during Super Bowl XXV. Many pundits believe that Kansas City needs to have a strong start because if they fall behind, the game could play into the hands of the 49ers elite pass rushers. I do agree that the Chiefs cannot think that just because they were down twenty-four to Houston and ten to Tennessee that they can just show up and click later. Kansas City must stay within contact. There will be several lead changes, and Patrick Mahomes will lead them down in crunch time to a go-ahead score. However, 49ers signal-caller Jimmy Garropolo will essentially have the ball last, convert two third downs on a four-minute drive. George Kittle catches a four-yard touchdown with about twenty seconds left. Two Hail Mary attempts to Tyreek Hill are nearly caught but the San Francisco secondary does just enough. Fox’s Terry Bradshaw will announce on the stage that Garropolo wins the MVP award around 10:15 PM Eastern Time Sunday.

Kansas City Chiefs over San Francisco 49ers
Before the season, I picked the Chiefs to win it all and I am sticking with them. The 49ers will not be able to run against the Kansas City defense and the Chiefs led by Patrick Mahomes on offense will be unstoppable.

Kansas City Chiefs over the San Francisco 49ers
The Kansas City Chiefs come away victorious in Miami. Andy Reid’s experience from his time with the Eagles in the Super Bowl will be beneficial. Likewise, Patrick Mahomes shows why he is one of the league’s best quarterbacks, connecting with Sammy Watkins multiple times.
It has been a while, but Chiefs fans can finally end a season on a high note.
Sean Naylor – Editor in Chief
San Francisco 49ers over the Kansas City Chiefs
San Francisco 49ers will win a wild one over the Kansas City Chiefs. The running game of the 49ers can outlast the arm of Patrick Mahomes. Slowing the game down is a Kyle Shanahan specialty. However, he will be unorthodox in this game and call upon the arm of Jimmy Garoppolo to win the sixth title in franchise history.
