Super Bowl 58 between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers is just days away, and people everywhere are placing predictions, including other NFL players.
While speaking with media members in Las Vegas ahead of the big game, Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. revealed which team he thinks has an edge heading into the biggest game of the season.
"I really hate doing this, but I think the 49ers have the edge," Pittman Jr. said, before quickly couching his comment by adding in how difficult it is to bet against Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
"It's so hard to bet against Pat," Pittman Jr. added. "Pat is such a great quarterback, and he can do so many things. But, if I had to give someone the edge on paper, the 49ers I think are the most complete team."
There's a reason Pittman Jr. isn't comfortable betting against Mahomes. The dude has already led the Chiefs to two Super Bowl victories in his first seven seasons, and he now has them one win away from another one.
Mahomes' first NFL championship came over the 49ers in Super Bowl 54. The star quarterback scored three total touchdowns in the game and led Kansas City to a 31-20 victory. Mahomes was named Super Bowl MVP for his performance in the contest.
Now, the 49ers will get a shot at revenge, but will they be able to take advantage of it? They won their two previous playoff games this season by a total of six points -- not exactly dominating fashion. But, at the end of the day a win is a win, and the final score doesn't really matter much.
San Francisco hasn't won a Super Bowl since 1994 -- that's thirty years. So, it's safe to say that fans in the Bay Area are thirsty for a title, and as a result they're hoping Pittman's prediciton comes true,.
