What happened at the last 49ers vs. Chiefs Super Bowl? 

This is a rematch from Super Bowl 54, which the Chiefs won by a score of 31-20. Kansas City was the second seed in the AFC and advanced with wins over the Bills, Texans, and Titans. San Francisco had a bye through the opening round as the NFC’s top seed and took down the Vikings and Packers to punch its big game ticket in 2020.  

At kickoff, the Chiefs were one-point favorites on the spread with the over/under at 54.5 points. The game was tied 10-10 at the half, and the 49ers took charge in the third frame to take a 20-10 lead. Kansas City scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win 31-20. 

This will be the eighth time two teams have squared off multiple times at the Super Bowl. Here are the records from the other instances: 

This time around, the Chiefs are the AFC’s third seed and have advanced with wins over the Dolphins, Bills, and Ravens. The 49ers are the NFC’s No. 1 seed and have scored victories over the Packers and Lions. The spread is tight once again, while the current total is lower than it was for Super Bowl 54.
