The 49ers are in the finals for the first time in seven years after the unchallenged success in Santa Clara, California, and are reaching for their sixth trophy. Most recently, a Super Bowl triumph was achieved in 1995. Raheem Mostert in particular impressed for San Francisco with 220 yards and four touchdowns.
Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers from the Green Bay Packers, on the other hand, did not develop as usual, the guests remained without points until the break and were already 0:27 behind at this point.
Kansas City previously ended the Titans’ run. The previous surprise team from Nashville had eliminated defending champions New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens in the previous rounds. KC is in the final for the third time after 1967 and 1970. With the home side quickly trailing 10-0, the Chiefs stabilized and responded better to Titans running back Derrick Henry’s runs.
