Why the 49ers can cover
Patrick Mahomes has been difficult to bring to the ground in the playoffs of late, as he has been sacked in only one of his three games each of the last two postseasons. San Francisco has registered only two sacks thus far in this year’s playoffs but is more than capable of getting to opposing quarterbacks as it was tied for seventh in the NFL during the regular season with 48. The 2022 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, defensive end Nick Bosa led the 49ers with 10.5 sacks and has recorded both of the team’s sacks in the postseason to increase his franchise playoff-record total to 10 in 11 career playoff games.
Defensive tackle Javon Hargrave was second on the 49ers in 2023 with seven sacks, marking the third consecutive season he reached the mark. The 30-year-old set a career high with 11 sacks while with the Eagles last year. Arik Armstead recorded five sacks in 12 games this campaign after going without one in nine contests in 2022, while fellow defensive end Chase Young had 2.5 in nine games with San Francisco after being acquired on Nov. 1 from Washington, where he notched five in seven contests.

Why the Chiefs can cover
Patrick Mahomes and playoff success have gone hand in hand since he became Kansas City’s starting quarterback in 2018. The 28-year-old has won 14 of his 17 postseason starts, which ties him for third-most victories by a starting QB in NFL history and is the most over a six-year span. A two-time Super Bowl MVP, Mahomes has thrown 39 touchdown passes with only seven interceptions in the playoffs and has gone six consecutive games without being picked off.
Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce have become the top quarterback-receiver duo in playoff history. They have connected for a record 17 touchdowns, overtaking Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski during this postseason as Kelce has hauled in three of Mahomes’ four scoring passes. The 34-year-old Kelce is the all-time playoff leader with 156 receptions and trails only Jerry Rice (2,245 and 22) with 1,810 receiving yards and 19 TD catches. See which team to pick here.
