Super Bowl LIV Report
What's to come in the next few weeks
The NFL finishes off their 100th season with the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers facing off for the Lombardi Trophy on February 2 at approximately 6:30 PM ET.
In the AFC Championship game, the Chiefs outplayed the Titans with a 35-24 win, while the NFC Championship game was won by the 49ers who went up against the Packers, winning 37-20.
This will be the Chiefs first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years, while the 49ers are playing in their 7th and are one win away from tying the Steelers and Patriots for most Super Bowl wins.
The game will follow QB Mahomes(Chiefs) and QB Jimmy Garapollo (49ers) as they lead their teams. Mahomes is 24, but has become a strong leader for the team these last few years. Through 4 career playoff games he has had 11 touchdowns and zero picks. Some are beginning to even say he may be the new Tom brady and the greatest player in the league. But, Garapollo isn’t to be missed in the background for this match up. It would be laughable to say Garoppolo is as good of a quarterback as Mahomes. However, football isn’t all about how a quarterback wins a game. Theoretically, the 49ers don’t need Mahomes to win. So, this game is going to be all about how each team comes together to win.
The two coaches for opposing teams each have their own favorable strategies. This Super Bowl game will be orchestrated by an old coach with a like to pass vs. a newer coach who prefers to run the ball. It definitely will be interesting to see each offense during the game in a little over a week.
The Super Bowl will be played at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida. This will be the 11th time the Metropolitan area has hosted a Super Bowl, which is the most of any host city.
Tickets are being priced at $5,400 at StubHub with the most expensive tickets starting at $35,000.
Though the game is being anticipated, the other most anticipated event of the year is the halftime show which will be performed by both Shakira and Jennifer Lopez. This will be the first Super Bowl halftime show since the NFL and Jay-Z signed a deal that put Jay-Z’s company, Roc Nation, in place to lead the league’s music and entertainment sectors. Demi Lavato will perform the National Anthem for Super Bowl LIV.
