After a long playoff season, the teams for this year's Super Bowl are officially set. The Kansas City Chiefs will return for another consecutive year as they face off against the San Fransisco 49ers on February 11.
This year's Conference Championship games came down to a match-up between the Chiefs, the Baltimore Ravens, 49ers and the Detroit Lions. The Chiefs took home an early evening victory over the Ravens with a final score of 17 to 10. While the 49ers had a close win over Detroit with 34 to 31
Kansas City will go into this year's big game with a 12-6 record, while San Fransisco will go in with a promising 14-5 record. The Chiefs took home the Vince Lombardi Trophy last year after a fourth quarter comeback against the Philadelphia Eagles with a final score of 38-35. This is the team's fourth Super Bowl and the 49ers eighth.
During the Conference Championship game, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce broke an NFL record for career postseason receptions. The record was previously held by San Fransisco Hall of Famer Jerry Rice.
Super Bowl LVIII will take place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and will air on CBS, Nickelodeon and stream via Paramount+ on Sunday, February 11 beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET.
