It was a good game. The 49ers won the first three quarters.
Unfortunately, the game is four quarters long and the Kansas City Chiefs‘ QB is Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes led a Chiefs comeback victory. The final score was 31-20.
The 49ers started the 4th quarter with a 20-10 lead. The Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points to hoist the Lombardi trophy.
The Chiefs were a narrow favorite to win.
We failed in our over/under pick of 53.5.
But we nailed the Mahomes as MVP pick.
Mahomes outplayed 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo when it counted. Some Chiefs players sounded out after the game that Garoppolo was overpaid and not a major passing threat to them.
Mahomes overcame the Madden Curse. Players who appear on the cover of the Madden game, usually have a bad season.
The 49ers may not have been about to overcome another curse.
We congratulate the 49ers on a great season. We wish them continued success next year as they strive to bring home the Lombardi trophy.
