Why the 49ers can cover
Since becoming San Francisco’s starting quarterback, Purdy has guided the team to a 17-4 record during the regular season and a 4-1 mark in the playoffs, with the loss coming against Philadelphia in last year’s NFC Championship Game in which he suffered a torn elbow ligament. The 24-year-old made an excellent recovery from the injury as he set an NFL record with an average of 9.6 yards per attempt in 2023. Purdy was fifth in the league with 4,280 passing yards, the most in one season in franchise history, and third with 31 touchdown tosses.
The 49ers had two players with more than 1,000 receiving yards during the regular season, with wideout Brandon Aiyuk setting a career high of 1,342 and tight end George Kittle racking up 1,020. Both players eclipsed the 1,000-yard plateau in 16 games, while Deebo Samuel finished with 892 receiving yards while missing two contests. Aiyuk and Samuel shared the team lead of seven touchdown catches with running back Christian McCaffrey, who led the NFL with 1,459 rushing yards and tied for first with 21 total TDs, while Kittle hauled in six scoring passes.

Why the Chiefs can cover
Isiah Pacheco did not wilt under the spotlight in the NFL playoffs as a rookie last season, registering at least 76 scrimmage yards in each of Kansas City’s three games and rushing for a touchdown in the Super Bowl. The 24-year-old, who was selected in the seventh round of the 2022 NFL Draft, has been even more productive this postseason, racking up 82 or more scrimmage yards in each of his three outings. Pacheco had a TD run in every playoff contest and enters the Super Bowl with a seven-game touchdown streak that includes a scoring reception in his final regular-season appearance in Week 17.
Pacheco fell three yards shy of his first career 100-yard rushing performance in the playoffs but could reach the plateau on Sunday as San Francisco has allowed the most rushing yards per game in a postseason entering the Super Bowl (159) since Green Bay in 1966. Aaron Jones of the Packers gained 108 yards on the ground against the 49ers in the divisional round while David Montgomery (93) was one of three members of the Lions to run for more than 40 yards in the NFC Championship Game. The 49ers gave up 148 rushing yards in the first half versus Detroit, the most they have yielded in the first 30 minutes of any game during head coach Kyle Shanahan’s seven-year tenure.
