3. QB throws for over 500 yards in a loss

Like most Super Bowl matchups, the first half will be a defensive battle as both teams will try to figure one another out.

With the big play ability of both teams, neither offense will be held down the entire game.  In fact, expect an explosion by both teams as this game will be similar to that New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl LII battle that saw both team’s scoring over 30 points.

In that Super Bowl matchup, Tom Brady threw for over 500 yards in defeat.  Sorry Kansas City Chiefs fans, but that is where Patrick Mahomes will come in the same conversation as Brady.

Mahomes will pass the ball all over the field, but a couple of key turnovers will swing the game in the 49ers favor and lead to them tying the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers with the most Super Bowl victories with six.

In other words, this will not be as uneventful offensively as that 13-3 Super Bowl LIII win by the Patriots over the Los Angeles fans just last year.  In defeat, Patrick Mahomes will prove the only way to really stop him is to force turnovers.
