49ers join the 1988 Cincinnati Bengals and 1999 St. Louis Rams as the only teams to reach the Super Bowl after winning four or fewer games the previous season.
San Francisco is 7-6 in 13 head-to-head matchups all time against Kansas City. The two franchises have never met in a playoff game.
Mike and Kyle Shanahan become the first father-son combo in NFL history to be head coaches of Super Bowl teams (Mike won two championships with the Denver Broncos).
49ers defensive end Dee Ford faces former team that traded him during the 2019 offseason. Ford was the Chiefs' first-round pick in 2014.
Patrick Mahomes was Kansas City's leading rusher in both 2019 playoff wins.
Jimmy Garoppolo attempted just eight passes in the NFC Championship game, fewest in the round's history.
Raheem Mostert became the only player in league history with 200-plus rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns in a playoff contest during Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers.
Mahomes becomes the third player to win MVP and make the Super Bowl in his first three seasons. Dan Marino and Kurt Warner are the others.
The Bay Area extends its streak of having at least one team reach a major sports championship round to nine years.
