Quick hits

  • 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.
