Super Bowl 58 takes place today in Las Vegas. The defending champion Kansas City Chiefs take on the San Francisco 49ers (as anyone reading this already knows). It is a rematch of Super Bowl 54, which the Chiefs won 31-20.

At least on paper, Kansas City has a much tougher matchup this time. The Chiefs have lost Pro Bowl players Tyreek Hill, Frank Clark, and Tyrann Mathieu from that championship squad. Meanwhile, the 49ers have boosted their roster with additions like Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey, Brandon Aiyuk, and Trent Williams.

Although the New England Patriots are not participating in this year’s game, other NFL fans will have little sympathy for Patriots Nation. The Patriots 11 Super Bowl appearances are the most in NFL history. Their six Lombardi Trophies are tied for the most.

If the Chiefs can prevail today they will become the first back-to-back champions since the 2003-2004 Patriots. If San Francisco wins, they join New England and Pittsburgh as the only six-time Super Bowl champions.
