Hello, and welcome to another edition of ‘Live-Blogging on Shish on Professional Football’. Tonight, it is the 54th edition of AFC-NFC Championship Game, more commonly known as Super Bowl LIV. This opponents in this year’s version are the NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers and AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
49ers are a win away from completing a 3-year rebuild and will try for a second time to win a Super Bowl playing complimentary football (Running Game and Great Defense). In their 5 Super Bowl Championships they won it through the arms of Joe Montana and Steve Young.
Meanwhile the Chiefs are hoping Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid will deliver Kansas City its first Vince Lombardi Trophy since the days of Hank Stram and Len Dawson in Super Bowl LIV. In that 1969 season, Len Dawson was the quarterback for that championship team. He only threw the ball 166 times, with 9 TDs and 13 INTs. In this Super Bowl Chiefs Team, Mahomes threw the ball 484 times for 26 TDs and 5 INTs.
This year’s 49ers team is led by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in passing. Raheem Mostert leads San Francisco in rushing. While George Kittle leads the team in receiving.
For their team stats, they score 29.9 PPG and move the ball at 381.1 YPG (237.0 through the air and 144.1 on the ground). Defensively, they allow 19.4 PPG and yield 281.8 YPG (169.2 through the air and 112.6 on the ground). Their turnover/takeaway ratio is +4.
As for the Chiefs, they are led by the Patrick Mahomes in passing. LeSean McCoy leads Kansas City in rushing. While Travis Kelce leads the team in receiving.
Their team stats include scoring 28.2 PPG, while moving the ball 379.2 YPG (281.1 through the air and 98.1 on the ground). Defensively, they allow 19.2 PPG while yielding 349.6 YPG (221.4 through the air and 128.2 on the ground). Their turnover/takeaway ratio is +8.
It is San Francisco 49ers taking on Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, coming up shortly.
