Super Bowl LIV: 49’ers Return

Jack Frauenhofer '22 Super Bowl 54 is finally here! The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers face off on February second for the Lombardi Trophy.  Both teams look to break their Super Bowl droughts, with the Chiefs not winning it since 1964, and the ‘Niners in 1994. The 49ers are coming off two strong victories against the Vikings and Packers, where their defense shined, giving up only 20 points against the Packers and 10 against the Vikings. The run game has been key for the Niners’ success, showed by Raheem Mostert’s 220 yards and four touchdowns in the…

In particular, the Miami Dolphins who are currently the bottom of the AFC East have a record of 0-4 and have been outscored 133 to 16 so far this season. They appear to be playing for the future and not competing this season.
