Super Bowl LIV is Ready to Entertain

  After a few long weekends of playoff matchups, the Super Bowl is now set. The Kansas City Chiefs will “host” the San Francisco 49ers in Miami on Feb. 2.

  Both teams started the first round of the playoffs with a bye. The Chiefs then went on to play the Texans who had taken out the Buffalo Bills the weekend before. 

  In the beginning, it looked as if the Chiefs were done for after the Texans went up 21-0 in the first quarter, but after that it didn’t matter as the Chiefs scored on almost every drive for the rest of the game.  They held the Texans to just 10 more points the rest of the game to come out on top 51-31.

  The win gave them a spot in the AFC championship against the Tennessee Titans led by the powerful running back Derrick Henry. It was a close game but the Chiefs slowly pulled away throughout the game. The Chiefs held Derrick Henry to nearly 70 yards, which is the least amount of yards he had run for this postseason.

  “KC will win because their offense is way too high powered for the 49ers to stop,” said junior Nate Riley. “I would think it will be 42 to 17.”

  The 49ers also started of the playoffs with the bye and hosted the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC divisional round. They beat them up in style as they won 27-10. 

  This win took the 49ers to the NFC championship against the Green Bay Packers. The Packers were coming off of a win against the Seattle Seahawks 28-23 in a nail biter. The 49ers ran away with this game in the first half by outscoring the Packers 27-0, and took the well deserved win 37-20 and punched their ticket to the Super Bowl.

  “San Francisco’s defense is great and defense wins football games,” senior Stephen Marinuzzi said. “I don’t think Patrick Mahomes will be able to do what he normally does.”

  The Chiefs will be the home team in the Super Bowl and the 49ers will be the away team. Kickoff from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami will be on Feb. 2 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
