This will be a fun one, and not just because America finally gets a break from the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday. Two of the best teams in the NFL all season, the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs, will meet in Miami Gardens, Florida, and they're evenly matched despite their contrasting styles. The Chiefs have the league's most fearsome passing attack, led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He'll face the 49ers' stingy defense and daunting pass rush made up of Nick Bosa, DeForest Buckner and Dee Ford. On the other side of the ball, the 49ers have a relentless rushing attack that usually requires very few passing attempts by QB Jimmy Garoppolo. The oddsmakers have the Chiefs as a slight favorite over the 49ers.
