San Francisco 49ers Preview

The 49ers are 3-2 over their last five games, but are currently on a two-game win streak. Their most recent success was a 34-31 triumph over the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship, where the 49ers were down as much as 17 points but rallied for the win.

In both of the 49ers playoff games, they have won by three points each time. So far, they are averaging 29.0 points and allowing 26.0 from opponents.

Their offense ranks third in the league, as they average 28.9 points per game. Defensively, they have been a much better team in allowing 17.5 points to opposing teams and also rank third. This point differential will be huge if they can defend at the same rate here.

Brock Purdy (31 TD, 11 INT) was arguably the best quarterback this season and he will have an opportunity to cap off an incredible run with the 49ers. He has put together 4,280 total yards, a pass completion rate of 69.4 (61.4 in playoffs), and ranks first overall with a QBR of 72.7.

Kansas City Chiefs Preview

The Chiefs have won their last five games, showing excellent momentum as they enter this pivotal stretch. They recently defeated the Baltimore Ravens 17-10 in the AFC Championship, with the Chiefs successfully not having any turnovers.

They have won their last three playoff games to reach the Super Bowl. They have been averaging 23.3 points each game and allowing 13.6 points from their opposition.

Throughout the season, the Chiefs have put together 21.8 points per game and rank 15th in the league. On defense, they have allowed 17.3 points and rank second overall each game. This is a slim margin of victory, but their defense will be key here.

Patrick Mahomes (27 TD, 14 INT) has Super Bowl experience on his side and will have a slight edge here. He has put up 4,183 total yards this season, along with a pass completion rate of 67.2 (68.0 through playoffs) and ranks eighth in the league with a QBR of 63.0.
