Chiefs have faced good defenses through out the season.

I'm not sure if SF have faced a good offense that was capable of changing their plans quickly (not just at half time). This latter is a strength of KC that has made them very successful so far.

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.

I'm not sure I buy this. The best defense the Chiefs had to play was NE and the Pats offense couldn't get anything done. The D got tired and couldn't keep up. Outside of that I suppose the Vikings and Ravens were good defenses.

The Chiefs simply cannot run the ball effectively. I expect Reid to break out screens and quick hitting throws to try to protect his offensive line. If that doesn't work I'm not sure they have much of a fallback beyond Mahomes scrambling a bunch.

The 49ers played 5 games in the regular against teams that ended with 10 or more wins and were 3-2 with both losses being last play losses.

Yup, and the 9ers have the best passing defense in the league, no?

Yep. And that was with Dee Ford, Kwon Alexander, and K'Waun Williams all missing time late in the year. They are all due to play in the SB.

You guys do realize that by the end of the games against the Vikings and Packers the 49ers had almost all subs in on defense.
