The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers punched their tickets to Super Bowl LIV with resounding wins on Championship Sunday.
Riding the Houdini act that is Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City came back from a 10-0 deficit to defeat the Tennessee Titans in the AFC title game.
Over in the NFC, San Francisco rode a dominant rushing attack to a 27-0 halftime lead and blowout win over the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium.
Heading into Super Bowl LIV between two evenly matched teams, here are five questions we have for the big game:
Will the Chiefs start slow again?
By now, it’s well known that Kansas City fell down 24-0 in the first half against the Houston Texans in the AFC Divisional Playoffs. The Chiefs ultimately scored 51 of the game’s final 58 points. Then, on Sunday, Kansas City fell down 10-0 to Tennessee before getting it going on offense.
The question here is whether Kansas City will start slow in the Super Bowl. If that were to happen against the game’s best defense, it would be a bigger issue than what we saw against both the Texans and Titans.
