The stage is set for Super Bowl LIV, the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the San Francisco 49ers. This is a matchup between the Chief’s explosive offense versus the 49ers devastating defense, will the Chief’s offense be too much to handle for the 49ers? Or will the 49ers defense “defend the land” and hold off the Chiefs attack?
Sundays Super Bowl will the 13th time that the two teams have played each other in NFL history dating back to 1971. The 49ers have a slight historical advantage in the head-to-head series having won seven games.
The 49ers have been impressive this season! Their three losses were handed to them on the very last play of the games. They dominated opponents and earned the first-overall seed in the NFC by beating the Seattle Seahawks by about 12 inches. The 49ers handled their business in the Divisional Round against the Minnesota Vikings, then demolished the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.
The 49ers are an old school team playing new-school football, they have a hard-hitting run offense that has been a menace for many defenses in the league. The superiority of the 49ers run game was exhibited in the win against the Packers, where QB Jimmy Garoppolo only attempted eight throws for the game! Credit goes to 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan and Offensive Coordinator Curtis Modkins for their innovative play designs and play calling.
The 49ers offense is loaded with explosive players, during the regular season QB Jimmy Garoppolo threw for just under 4,000 yards, with 27 touchdowns. Running backs Raheem Sterling, Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman rushed for a combined 1,939 yards, scoring 15 TDs and averaging just under five yards per carry.
Alongside their versatile offense, the 49ers have a dominant defense.
There may be no defense better equipped to deal with the Chief’s fast-paced offense than San Francisco’s. During the regular season, the 49ers’ pass defense was able to hold its opposition to a league-low 34 passes of 20 yards or more.
The 49ers are expected to have K’Waun Williams, perhaps the league’s top slot corner, shadowing the Chief’s WR Tyreek Hill. This would leave corners Richard Sherman and Emmanuel Moseley with the task of dealing with Sammy Watkins and Mecole Hardman, the Chiefs’ other wideouts in their pass-driven offense.
