The San Francisco 49ers will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Las Vegas on Sunday in a rematch of Super Bowl 54. However, the 49ers will be looking for a different outcome after taking a 31-20 loss to the Chiefs back in 2020.
The 49ers have been one of the most complete teams in the NFL this season and open the game as favorites against the reigning Super Bowl champion Chiefs. You can watch the game starting at 6:30 p.m. ET from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, live on CBS.

Potential key missing players
Kittle was missing from practice all through last week due to a toe injury, and there were obvious concerns that one of the 49ers’ best playmakers might be in jeopardy of missing the Super Bowl. However, Kittle appeared as a limited participant on Wednesday’s injury report — a positive sign with hopes of trending in the right direction.
On top of that, both Kittle and Kyle Shanahan spoke to the media earlier in the week, and both were optimistic that the All-Pro tight end would be suiting up on Sunday for the 49ers.
Like Kittle, Armstead missed time in practice last week. Unlike Kittle, though, Armstead has been dealing with multiple injuries in his knee and foot. Despite suiting up for practice last Wednesday, he missed Thursday’s and Friday’s practices. The good news, again, for the 49ers however is that Armstead was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday and could be heading toward a full practice over the next few days. If he does, that’ll mean he’ll be more likely to start for the 49ers.
Burks was a limited participant through last week’s practice since missing both of the 49ers’ playoff games with a neck injury. The former Packers’ linebacker has been an important depth piece for the 49ers this season but could be rusty after missing the last two games. However, Burks was still listed as a limited participant on Wednesday as well. It’s a tentative sign that he also may be heading in the right direction.
