Special Teams

Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker had a near flawless season, converting 33 of his 35 field goal attempts and was perfect in his 38 extra-point attempts. The 49ers kicker is a rookie out of Michigan in Jake Moody and got off to a great start in his career. He only missed four kicks out of his 25 field goal attempts and made 60 of 61 extra points. 

Those stats right there tell you how good San Francisco is at converting drives into touchdowns, but the fact here is that Moody is a rookie who is about to play in the biggest game of his life. Butker at this point has been to four of these Super Bowls and is five of six in the three he has played in. He is playing the best football of his life right now. 

In terms of their punt average and punts inside the 20, the two punters in this game are pretty even. But much like Butker, Tommy Townsend has been in this game twice before, which should give him the advantage coming in over Mitch Wishnowsky. 

Advantage: Chiefs
