Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs' vaunted passing attack will face a stiff test against the San Francisco 49ers' stifling defense.

This will be a fun one, and not only because America finally gets a break from the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will meet in Miami for Super Bowl LIV. The Chiefs and 49ers were two of the best teams in the NFL all season, 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 quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The oddsmakers have the Chiefs as a slight, one-point favorite over the 49ers.
