The Greatest show on earth
The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers will do battle in this year’s Super Bowl in Miami with all eyes on star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who has been in sensational form for the Chiefs having recovered from a knee injury which he picked up in Week 7.
The game – which is often referred to as “The greatest show on earth” – pits one of the most impressive offences against one of the meanest defences, which should ensure a gripping affair from start to finish.
The San Francisco 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers in the AFC Conference to reach their first Super Bowl since 2012, while the Kansas City Chiefs continued their sparkling form to make their first Super Bowl appearance since 1970.
Question 1. Who will win?
The NFL’s most explosive offense comes up against its most devastating defence on Sunday night and something has to give in what is expected to be a gripping encounter.
The Kansas City Chiefs have been in blistering form thanks to their star QB Patrick Mahomes, who has guided his side to the Super Bowl having returned from an injury that kept him out for a number of weeks, but appears to be back to his best right now.
The Chiefs are 27-8 with him as their starting quarterback and he’s never lost a game by more than seven points while in the post-season with 615 passing yards with eight touchdowns and no interceptions, alongside leading his team in rushing yards.
But don’t write off the San Francisco 49ers, who enter the Super Bowl with 57 sacks, a league-high and it’s worth noting that six teams ever have come to the Super Bowl with over 55 sacks and they’ve all walked away with the Championship.
Question 2. Will there be over or under 54.5 points scored?
With a QB with the ability of Patrick Mahomes on the field there is every chance of a slugfest especially seeing as, in two postseason games, he has thrown a total of eight touchdowns – five against the Houston Texans and then three against the Titans.
But it’s not just about one gunslinger on Sunday night with the Niners’ offering their own threat in the form of Jimmy Goropollo – who threw for 349 yards and four touchdowns when San Francisco defeated the Saints last month.
The Niners quarterback has averaged 287 passing yards and two touchdowns per game this season, with a 109.5 passer rating, which would rank as the fourth-best in the league, so if both are able to fire on all cylinders the prospect of a high-scoring encounter is pretty likely.
Question 3. Who will score first and how?
With two in-form quarterbacks going head-to-head on Sunday night there is every likelihood that whoever wins the toss will look to score from their opening drive with the likes of Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins eager to et on the board early.
But these two QBs don’t just make touchdowns, they score them too, not least the Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes who scored after a brilliant 27-yard run as the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship game.
The safe bet is to go for a field goal though, especially if the 49ers defence can live up to their pre-game billing and keep the Cheifs’ anger man out of the red zone, forcing them to settle for three points early in the game.
