Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Chiefs are well acquainted with appearances in the Super Bowl at this point in recent history. They’ll approach their second consecutive trip to the Super Bowl under HC Andy Reid and QB Patrick Mahomes in Super Bowl 55.
In the 2019 NFL season, the Chiefs fought their way to win the AFC title game following a 12-4 season and their fourth-consecutive AFC West title. They faced the San Francisco 49ers at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Florida on Sunday, February 2, 2020 for Super Bowl LIV.
In this matchup, the Chiefs saw three offensive assets exceed 98 or more scrimmage yards, including Tyreek Hill, Damien Williams, and Sammy Watkins. Mahomes posted 286 passing yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs in this game — a noble effort, and one that earned him the title of 2020 Super Bowl MVP.
The Chiefs won the game 31-20, with Damien Williams delivering the final two blows in the final three minutes of the game — a five-yard receiving touchdown and 38 yard rushing score.
