Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming game through the lens of STATSCORE’s American football data.

Get ready for the Big Game through top American football stats and data!

Seeking to secure consecutive league triumphs, the Chiefs aim to achieve a feat not seen since the Patriots’ back-to-back triumphs in 2003 and 2004. 

This upcoming game marks the Chiefs’ sixth appearance in the grand final and their fourth in the last five seasons, underscoring their consistent competitiveness on the greatest stage of American football

For the 49ers, this will be their eighth appearance in the final game.  A win in this upcoming game would not only make the 49ers the first NFC team to secure six Big Game victories but also position them as the third team overall to achieve this milestone, joining the ranks of the Patriots and the Steelers.

San Francisco is the second highest-scoring team of the ongoing season with 28.89 points per game on average, surpassed only by the Cowboys, who boast 30.1 points scored per game.

On the other hand, the Chiefs come second in the league when it comes to the lowest average number of points conceded with 16.75 per game, the 49ers take third place here with 18.42 points allowed.

Interestingly, the data shows that for both teams it’s the second quarter when the highest numbers of points are scored

Road to the Big Game – in American football stats and data

Under seventh-year head coach Kyle Shanahan, the San Francisco 49ers ended the 2023 season with a 12–5 record, the NFC’s #1 seed, and a first-round bye. The next stages saw them beat Packers and Lions.

San Francisco 49ers were the team to beat in the NFC all season. When you look at their roster you see superstars all over. Trent Williams, Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, Nick Bosa, Fred Warner, just to name a few. Every NFL fan knows these names well. The one that doesn’t match is their quarterback – Brock Purdy. Last pick of the 2022 NFL draft. 

Who would have thought that a guy, who barely made the roster last year, would be starting in the Big Game next season? Surely not me. But if you think he’s here by mistake, you’re wrong.

Looking at his numbers he was unbelievable. 5th in passing yards (played 1 game less), 4th in passing yards per game, 1st in passer rating, 1st in QBR, 1st in yards per attempt. Those are MVP worthy numbers, not Mr. Irrelevant. The 49ers’ success will depend on Purdy’s play and if he’ll bring his “A” game, they have a shot – says Patryk Mazurek, Sports Data Specialist at STATSCORE.

The Chiefs finished the 2023 season with an 11–6 record, then went on to defeat Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, and Baltimore Ravens on the road to the grand final.

The easiest way to describe the strengths of the Kansas City Chiefs would be using two names. Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes. The first one is arguably one of the best coaches in the history of the NFL. You can put his name next to Bill Belichick, Vince Lombardi, or Don Shula and no one will object. Mahomes in a few years may surpass Tom Brady as the GOAT. He’s being compared to Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods. Greatness is in his blood.

I would like to go in a different way and point to the Chefs’ defense as their greatest asset. In the current era (since the 1966 merger between the NFL and the AFL) there were only 5 teams, who during the span of a season didn’t allow any opponent to score 28+ points. ’00 Ravens, ’02 Bucs, ’05 Steelers, ’10 Packers and this years’ Chiefs. All of them, at the end of the day, hoisted the Trophy –  Patryk Mazurek analyzes.

Historically, when considering the H2H of the last five games between the involved franchises, the Chiefs come out as leaders with 4 victories, with only one win by the 49ers.
