Sportswriters split on who will win the Superbowl

By Thomas Rodriguez

As a 49er fan at birth, it is obvious I want the 49ers to win their sixth championship in Super Bowl 54. We have been the butt of everyone’s jokes the past seven years as we seemed to never be able to win since 2013 when Colin Kaepernick was leading the team. After acquiring many key players the past two years such as signing star cornerback Richard Sherman, drafting rookie superstar Nick Bosa along with arguably the best tight end in the league George Kittle, the dangerous wide receiver duo Emmanual Sanders and Deebo Samuel, and running back Raheem Mostert, they have all shown they can carry their own weight and I believe we can overcome the offense heavy Kansas City Chiefs. 

Even though the Chiefs offense seems unstoppable with their three-headed wide receiver trio: Travis Klece, Tyreke Hill, and Sammy Watkins, the 49ers have shown their defense can come up clutch time and time again. Although the 49ers have not shown they have the best Red Zone defense, their run game has been proven to be a threat. The only person on the Chiefs that can stop it is safety Tyrann Mathieu. They don’t really have the best defense besides Mathieu. I don’t believe him alone can stop all of the 49er’s offensive weapons. If they can stop the offense heavy Kansas City Chiefs, I believe they will be crowned Super Bowl Champions

My prediction for the 54th Super Bowl is going to have to go to the Kansas City Chiefs. Rising Star Patrick Mahomes has taken the Chiefs from the middle of the division to the top in the matter of seasons. Mahomes is immaculate in the air as he completed the season with over 4,000 passing yards. Receiver trio, Travis Kelce, Sammy Watkins, and Tyreek Hill all had over 500 receiving yards except for Kelce, who had over 1,000 yards. Mahomes and Kelce are one of the top quarterback-receiver duos in the league since Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown. The only problem with the Chiefs is their run game. Their starting running back only had 450 rushing yards, but he’s come up clutch when needed.

With the Chief’s dominant passing game, they need to establish the run to keep the 49ers defense on edge. If running back Damien Williams averages five yards per carry, I think the Chiefs can come out on top. Defensively, the Chiefs need to be able to stop the run. The 49ers have been unstoppable with the run, with only throwing for ten passes in the past two games. The Chiefs held the  Tennessee Titans rushing leader Derrick Henry to only 69 yards and one touchdown. If they can pull out the same stops I believe they can be crowned Super Bowl 54 Champions.
