Super Bowl 58 will feature a matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers. The Chiefs earned the No. 3 seed in the AFC this season. They defeated the Dolphins at Arrowhead Stadium in the Wild Card round before heading to Buffalo, where they grabbed a 27-24 win over the Buffalo Bills. In the AFC Championship Game, they took down the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium, 17-10.

This marks the Chiefs’ fourth Super Bowl appearance in five years. They are the reigning NFL champions after defeating the Eagles in last year’s Super Bowl, and also won it all in 2020.

The 49ers earned the top seed in the NFC after a 12-5 regular season. They had to stage big comebacks against two different NFC North teams in their path to the Super Bowl, defeating the Packers in the Divisional Round and staging the biggest comeback in conference championship history to defeat the Lions in the NFC title game, 34-31.

The 49ers last appeared in the Super Bowl in 2020, and they lost 31-20 to the Chiefs. They have not won a Super Bowl since 1995.
