Chiefs Kingdom may as well rename Allegiant Stadium as "Arrowhead West:" at this point. The Las Vegas Raiders stadium hosts Super Bowl LVII, a place where the Chiefs have been undefeated since it opened in 2020.

The Kansas City Chiefs likely already have a good drumbeat when they travel to Las Vegas—a favorite joint to eat at, a solid hotel, and there is always something to do in Vegas. The Chiefs always make a point in Vegas to go, have fun, crack skulls, and head back home as victors. Their four wins in Las Vegas are second-most, only trailing the Raiders at their home stadium.

The venue is closer to the NFC champion San Francisco 49ers, but Chiefs fans travel notoriously well to Allegiant. They also did so at Hard Rock Stadium in 2020, where these two teams met in Super Bowl LIV. That was the crowning game for this Chiefs dynasty, the start of a historic run. The Chefs scored 21 unanswered points on the vaunted 49ers defense, winning 31-20. That was head coach Andy Reid's elusive first Super Bowl win, while quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his magic captured Super Bowl MVP honors.

How will the Kansas City Chiefs capture another Lombardi Trophy at the San Francisco 49ers expense?

Much has changed in the four years since that Super Bowl. These championship appearances are old hat for Kansas City as they strive to become back-to-back Super Bowl winners. On the other hand, the trophies adorning Levi's Stadium are gathering dust from at least 30 years ago. Can quarterback Brock Purdy and company bring the Lombardi back to San Francisco? Not if Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo has anything to say about it.

We are less than a week away from the NFL's final game this season. After a tumultuous regular season in Kansas City, they ended the season where the Chiefs Kingdom hoped they would. How will their Super Bowl LVIII victory take shape? Here are my main predictions for the game.
