The San Francisco 49ers rallied from a 24-7 deficit against the Detroit Lions to win the NFC championship game, securing their place in Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Despite the change in personnel from four years ago, this is something of a revenge game for the 49ers, who lost to the Chiefs in Super Bowl 54 after leading the game heading into the fourth quarter.
After the comeback win versus the Lions, the 49ers open Super Bowl LIV as slight favorites over the Chiefs. San Francisco is also the de facto home team as well, due to a 12-5 regular season record. You can watch the game on Sunday, Feb. 11, starting at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBS. Top Super Bowl betting sites have the 49ers at .

Injury updates after the NFC championship game
After the NFC championship game, postgame interviews raised some questions about the health status of some players. Key personnel like Christian McCaffrey and Dre Greenlaw faced what looked like injuries during the game. Kyle Shanahan updated the media after the game:
“Yeah, he said he got a little bit of a stinger when he went down there. That’s what his words were. He had to come out for a play. I know Elijah went in there and scored, but I know at the end, Christian was good to go back.”Kyle Shanahan
