Super Bowl LIV: Miami Showdown


8th grader Gabe Rocha said, “I think that the 49ers are going to win because they have a better defense”.

This year’s Super Bowl will feature the San Francisco 49ers versus the Kansas City Chiefs. The 49ers beat the Packers in the playoffs to make it to the Super Bowl, and the Chiefs beat the Titans. This season, the 49ers’ record was 13-3 and the Chiefs were 12-4. The Chiefs are the favored team to win the Super Bowl, and the Vegas odds as of right now are 1.5. Over the years, the Chiefs have won the Super Bowl three times while the 49ers have won five times. Most people in the Bay Area want the 49ers to win, seeing as they are the home team.

The Chiefs and 49ers both are amazing teams but some players on those teams stick out among all the other players. Some of those players on the 49ers on offense are their quarterback, Jimmy Garrapolo, their tight end George Kittle and their halfback, Raheem Mostert. On defense for the 49ers, their top players are their left end Nick Bosa, their defensive back Richard Sherman, and their defensive tackle Deforest Buckner. For the Chiefs, their best players are their quarterback Patrick Mahomes, their tight end George Kittle and their wide receiver Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs defense isn’t nearly as good as the 49ers defense.

Though the Niners are known to have the best defense in their conference, the Chiefs are known to have some of the best offense, so it will be a very good matchup in the Superbowl. We interviewed students at our school and asked them who they thought was going to win the Super Bowl and why. Kai Gulliksen and Gabe Rocha both said, “I think that the 49ers are going to win because they have a better defense”.

Jose Leyva said, “I think that the Chiefs are going to win because they have a better offense and they have Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill”.

Grayson Wyman also commented,” The 49’ers will just shut them down and win the game”.

They both have lots of history being in the Super Bowl. The Chiefs have met the 49ers have played each other 13 times and the 49ers have the edge in wins 7-6. The 49ers were the team to beat from 1980 through 1995 and have had amazing players. Some of the greatest football players of all time have played for the 49ers including Ronny Lott, Joe Montana, Dwight Clark, Jerry Rice, Terrel Owens, Roger Craig, Frank Gore, Steve Young and many more.

The Super Bowl is a really big deal to people, especially 49er and Chiefs fans this weekend. According to their records, the 49ers have had a better season but the Chiefs are right behind them. The Chiefs have an amazing quarterback (Patrick Mahomes) and a really fast offense to go with it. The big question is, can the Chiefs beat the 49ers’ outstanding defense?
