Super Bowl LIV will be a great litmus test for the modern-day NFL. Will the San Francisco 49ers, led by their old-school run-first approach get the best of the new-age pass-first Kansas City Chiefs? We’ll find out on Sunday night. The game features one of the NFL’s best defenses (49ers) against arguably the NFL’s best offenses. What more can you really ask for from a matchup standpoint?
Both the 49ers and Chiefs have had to overcome a lot to get there. The Chiefs trailed by double digits in both of their two postseason games this year, but they managed to strike back to such a degree that they won both matchups by double digits. Patrick Mahomes dazzled with both his legs and arm — and he threw for 294 yards and three touchdowns. He also led the Chiefs in rushing yards with 53 and another touchdown.
The 49ers, meanwhile, are arguably the most flawless team in the league — especially after the return of linebacker Kwon Alexander. Both Alexander and Dee Ford have contributed to a dominant effort by the 49ers’ defense this postseason. They have also shown signs that they can be the first team to slow down Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
Both of these historic NFL franchises will now duke it out with a chance to become world champions. But which Sunday should you mark on your calendar? When, exactly, is Super Bowl LIV?
