The 49ers steamrolled their way to Miami.

Coach Kyle Shanahan's team demoralize the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC divisional round and then came out and slaughtered the Green Bay Packers on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game at Levi's Stadium.

But the back-to-back playoff beatdown hasn't impressed the oddsmakers as much as you'd think.

With Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs awaiting them in Super Bowl LIV, the 49ers have opened as slight underdogs in Miami.

The matchup of two bright offensive minds in Shanahan and Chiefs coach Andy Reid has many believe there will be a shootout in South Beach. 

Can Nick Bosa, DeForest Buckner and Co. do enough to slow down Mahomes and the Chiefs' high-octane attack? Will the Chiefs be able to bottle up the 49ers' run game and make Jimmy Garoppolo beat them?

The 49ers have been the most complete team all season, blowing through any team that has stood in their way.

But Mahomes is a whole different beast to stop. With two weeks to prepare, the 49ers will have to dial up something special if they plan to win their sixth Super Bowl in franchise history.
