It’s official: Super Bowl LIV will see a battle between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. Both teams played Sunday afternoon, defeating the Tennessee Titans and the Green Bay Packers, respectively.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the key for the Chiefs, completing 23 of 35 passes for 294 yards and three touchdowns. He also led the Chiefs on the ground, earning 53 rushing yards on eight carries and a 27-yard touchdown. The 35-24 victory will send head coach Andy Reid to his second Super Bowl and the Chiefs to their first one in 50 years.
In the second game, the 49ers handled business against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers from kickoff until the final buzzer. QB Jimmy Garoppolo and the rest of the 49ers entered the locker room at halftime with a 27-0 lead. The Packers tried to make things interesting in the second half, but the 49ers eventually claimed a 37-20 victory. Former Cat Za’Darius Smith had five tackles (three solo) in his team’s loss.
As for the KSR crew… It looks like it will be a full week in Iowa free of any football distractions. Condolences to Drew Franklin and Shannon The Dude… and congrats to Matt Jones on not having to buy two plane tickets to Miami.
We’re more of a Des Moines friendship. Miami is too crazy anyway.
