As we approach kickoff of Super Bowl LIV, we thought it would be fun to look back at what we had to say about the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers coming into the year. Below you'll find links to the Kansas City and San Francisco chapters of Football Outsiders Almanac 2019. We were somewhat skeptical on the Chiefs, thinking their offense would regress from its 2018 form (which, technically, it did). And we had many questions about San Francisco -- was Jimmy Garoppolo really the quarterback they needed? Did they have the pieces to make their running game work? And would their pass rush be good enough to cover any holes in the secondary? The answers to those questions were obviously yes, yes, and yes.
Football Outsiders Almanac 2020 will be available Mid-July.
