The Kansas City Chiefs aren’t used to being underdogs.

They’ve been the team to beat since Patrick Mahomes took over as starter, and they’ve usually been favored ahead of every single game.

That hasn’t been the case lately, as they were underdogs in both the AFC Divisional Round and AFC Championship Game.

Now, they’re 2.5-point underdogs ahead of the Super Bowl.

When asked about that, HC Andy Reid was brutally honest, stating that he never feels like an underdog, but he understands the reasoning behind the current situation (via Sam McDowell).

The San Francisco 49ers have one of the most stacked teams this game has ever seen, and they’ll have multiple Hall of Famers once it’s all said and done.

They’ve been favored in every single game they’ve played this season, and rightfully so.

Even so, perhaps they would rather be underdogs this time, as they know this is just poking the bear.

Mahomes has embraced that villain mentality, and he’s had a huge chip on his shoulder from the very second he knew he was going to be on the road in the playoffs for the first time in his career.

The Niners might have more talent on their roster, but the Chiefs have proven that they can never be counted out.

They’ve been to this stage four times in the past five years and know very well what it takes to win, and — unlike the Niners — they don’t have anything left to prove at this point, and that’s what makes them so dangerous.
