Who is in Super Bowl 2024? Here are the teams, odds & spread for Super Bowl 58 matchup

The NFL playoffs are down to its final two teams — and it’s a rematch of Super Bowl 54. 

The matchup for Super Bowl 58 is set, as the Chiefs and X will battle in Las Vegas to decide the champion for the NFL’s 2023 season.

For the fourth time in six seasons, Patrick Mahomes is playing in a Super Bowl. The Chiefs superstar quarterback has a chance to go back-to-back, as Kansas City punched its ticket back to football’s biggest stage with a 17-10 win over Baltimore in the AFC Championship. 

The defense was the story again for Andy Reid’s crew. After allowing a touchdown to Lamar Jackson and the Ravens in the first quarter, the Kansas CIty defensive unit held Baltimore out of the end zone for the rest of the game. Mahomes and the offense did not need to score a single point in the second half, as Steve Spagnuolo’s contingent held down the fort for the win.

Meanwhile, the 49ers are back on the big stage seeking revenge on Mahomes and the Chiefs. San Francisco has not played in the Super Bowl since falling to Kansas City in the championship game of the 2019 season. 

Kyle Shanahan’s crew enjoyed quite the comeback in the NFC Championship, storming back from a 24-7 deficit to knock off the Lions 34-31 in Santa Clara. A multitude of Detroit miscues and mistakes helped San Francisco stay in the game, allowing the top seed in the NFC to come back and deny Detroit of its first Super Bowl appearance.
