Super Bowl preview: Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers

Originally known as the “AFL​​–NFL World Championship Game,” the first iteration of the big show was held in 1967. Soon after, it came to be known as the Super Bowl, inspired by then–Kansas City Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt’s children’s “Super Ball” toy. The more you know.

  • Now with over 100 million viewers tuning in from around the world, the Super Bowl has grown into a sports (and cultural) tradition like none other.
  • Whether you’re in it for the food (an estimated 1.45 billion chicken wings will be consumed), Usher’s halftime show, the football, or all of the above, there’s truly something for everyone.

And when it comes to this year’s edition, there are plenty of storylines adding to the hype. Kansas City has a chance to become the first team to repeat as champions since the New England Patriots did it in 2005, and their QB Patrick Mahomes could win his third Lombardi Trophy at just age 28. Dynasty, loading?

As for the 49ers, they’re helmed by an unlikely signal caller, Brock “Mr. Irrelevant” Purdy, the last overall pick in the 2022 draft. But this isn’t a Cinderella Story — SF boasts plenty of talent as they search to return to their own dynastic ways from the 1980s and ’90s.
