As a Broncos fan, I'm somewhat conflicted.

While Division rivals, I'm still "rooting" for the Chiefs since they represent the Division.

However, there are a lot of Bronco connections on the 49'ers (son of former HC; Sanders); so I also wish them well and would be happy to see them win as well.

That's why I opted for "No horse in the game" and sticking to supporting our Divisional representative.

Also conflicted.

I liked the 49ers team growing up and was a huge Jerry Rice fan. But OTOH I'm a Bengals fan at heart and can't really root for them to win when they beat the Bengals in both Super Bowls they made.

I also really liked Derrick Thomas so I was always a little partial to the Chiefs. But Damien Williams pretty much screwed me this fantasy season (and now has like 150 TDs in the playoffs) though I can't really hold that against him or them.

So while I voted no horse in the race I guess I'll give a slight edge to KC and I think they'll win FWIW.

Lifelong Eagles fan here, rooting for KC because it's time for Andy Reid to get his.

As for who I think will actually win? Leaning Chiefs on this one as well, but both teams are strong so I expect a close game.

10 have the Chiefs winning and 0 for SF

My first instinct is to throw down a lot on the Chiefs, but then there's this:

I know they're not quite #1 offense/defense but you know what I mean. Anyone have any good takes?

#1 defense is 6-1 in the SB vs the #1 offense
