One of the most magical NFL Sundays of the year is nearly here. Super Bowl LIV is less than a week away, and although the Los Angeles Rams will not be participating, it still should be an exciting game.
The electric offense of the Kansas City Chiefs will be pitted against the lockdown defense of the San Francisco 49ers this weekend in Miami. Getting to Super Bowl LIV was not easy for either team, but both are looking for a big game.
Kansas City most recently took on the playoff sleepers in the Tennessee Titans. Although the Titans surprised almost everyone by making it to the AFC championship game, they came up short against the Chiefs as Patrick Mahomes was simply too much.
The Titans actually got off to a good start the Chiefs, taking a 17-7 lead at one point. However, before the first half ended, Mahomes helped his team take a 21-17 lead.
The Titans offense began to falter in the second half while the Chiefs offense continued to fire on all cylinders. After just one more Titans score, the Chiefs had secured a 35-24 victory.
In the NFC, the 49ers took on the Green Bay Packers in one of the most anticipated matchups of the playoffs. The Week 12 rematch saw the 49ers once again frustrating the Packers and Aaron Rodgers.
Although Rodgers had a good game, the 49ers defense was still too much as he was sacked three times and threw two interceptions. The Packers defense could do nothing to contain the 49ers run game, however.
San Francisco running back Raheem Mostert earned 220 yards on the way to the second-best rushing performance in NFL postseason history. He also notched all four of the 49ers’ touchdowns en route to a 37-20 win over Green Bay to send the 49ers back to the Super Bowl.
