Kyle Shanahan will hope to get his family name into the NFL record book when his San Francisco 49ers clash with the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58 on Sunday. Shanahan is looking to be part of the first father-son duo to each win a championship as a head coach in the history of the four main North American team sports, as his father Mike guided Denver to back-to-back Super Bowl titles in 1997 and 1998. Kyle failed in his first attempt after San Francisco (14-5) suffered a 31-20 loss against Kansas City (14-6) in Super Bowl 54. The 49ers are seeking their first championship since 1994, while the Chiefs are vying for their second in a row and third in five years. 

Kickoff for Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas is set for 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount+.

Why the 49ers can cover

Kansas City's Travis Kelce is one of the best tight ends in NFL history, but San Francisco has a pretty good one of its own in George Kittle. The 30-year-old Kittle led all tight ends during the regular season with 1,020 receiving yards, marking the third time he reached the 1,000-yard plateau in his career and first since 2019. Only Jerry Rice (12) and Terrell Owens (5) have posted more 1,000-yard seasons in the history of the 49ers.

Since 2018, Kittle is second among NFL tight ends with 417 receptions and 5,759 receiving yards and ranks third with 35 touchdown catches. He also is third in league history at his position with an average of 64 receiving yards per game. Kittle came up with a strong performance when the 49ers faced Kansas City in Week 7 last season, hauling in six passes for 98 yards and a touchdown. See which team to back here.

Why the Chiefs can cover

Kansas City will be looking to extend an amazing streak on Sunday as it has scored on its first possession in eight consecutive playoff games. This postseason, Patrick Mahomes threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to Rashee Rice on the Chiefs' opening drive against Miami in the wild-card round, Harrison Butker kicked a 47-yard field goal on their first possession in the divisional round versus Buffalo and Travis Kelce made a 19-yard scoring catch the first time the team had the football at Baltimore in the AFC Championship Game. During the run, Kansas City has recorded six TDs and a pair of field goals.

Mahomes was involved in each of the six touchdowns, throwing for five and running for another. Three of his scoring passes went to Kelce, who trails only Jerry Rice (22) on the NFL's all-time list with 19 career postseason TD receptions. Another candidate to find the end zone on Kansas City's first possession on Sunday is running back Isiah Pacheco, who enters the Super Bowl with a seven-game touchdown streak during which he has made seven TD runs and one scoring catch. See which team to pick here.
