Micah Roberts has his finger on the pulse of Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel in the 2024 Super Bowl
Brock Purdy experienced one of the top moments of his career in Las Vegas when he was selected by the San Francisco 49ers with the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft. He hopes to enjoy another in Sin City when he leads the 49ers against the reigning champion Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58 on Sunday. Purdy has helped San Francisco (14-5) reach the Super Bowl for the eighth time in franchise history and first since losing to Kansas City in 2019 by guiding the team to victories against Green Bay and Detroit during the 2024 NFL playoffs. The Chiefs (14-6) are looking to become the first team to defend the championship successfully since New England in 2004 after defeating Miami, Buffalo and Baltimore.

Why the 49ers can cover
Since becoming San Francisco’s starting quarterback, Purdy has guided the team to a 17-4 record during the regular season and a 4-1 mark in the playoffs, with the loss coming against Philadelphia in last year’s NFC Championship Game in which he suffered a torn elbow ligament. The 24-year-old made an excellent recovery from the injury as he set an NFL record with an average of 9.6 yards per attempt in 2023. Purdy was fifth in the league with 4,280 passing yards, the most in one season in franchise history, and third with 31 touchdown tosses.
The 49ers had two players with more than 1,000 receiving yards during the regular season, with wideout Brandon Aiyuk setting a career high of 1,342 and tight end George Kittle racking up 1,020. Both players eclipsed the 1,000-yard plateau in 16 games, while Deebo Samuel finished with 892 receiving yards while missing two contests. Aiyuk and Samuel shared the team lead of seven touchdown catches with running back Christian McCaffrey, who led the NFL with 1,459 rushing yards and tied for first with 21 total TDs, while Kittle hauled in six scoring passes.

Why the Chiefs can cover
Patrick Mahomes has an amazing postseason record, leading Kansas City to victory in 14 of his 17 career games. The two-time Super Bowl MVP also has had tremendous success at Allegiant Stadium as he has completed 73.5% of his attempts with 10 touchdown passes and just one interception while going 4-0 there when facing the Las Vegas Raiders. Veteran tight end Travis Kelce remains Mahomes’ top target, but rookie wideout Rashee Rice has become a key member of the Chiefs’ aerial attack this postseason.
Rice had a superb playoff debut, hauling in eight passes for 130 yards and a TD against Miami in the wild-card round. The 23-year-old from SMU, who was selected in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft, has 223 receiving yards thus far this postseason – the fourth-most by a rookie. Rice will need a huge performance to overtake Ja’Marr Chase for the record (368 yards in 2021) but likely will move past Austin Collie (241 in 2009) and Torry Holt (242 in 1999) for second place.
