The NFL’s conference championship games have concluded.
Then in Sunday evening’s NFC Championship, the Detroit Lions jumped out to a 24-7 halftime lead over the San Francisco 49ers at Levi’s Stadium — but in that game, the 49ers came charging back, scoring 27 unanswered points on the way to 34-31 victory.
So on February 11, Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will feature the Chiefs against the 49ers — a rematch of Super Bowl LIV following the 2019 season, in which Kansas City defeated San Francisco 31-20 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami.
Just as they were four years ago, the Chiefs — as the AFC representative — will be designated as the home team.
Kickoff is set for 5:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time. The game will be broadcast on CBS (locally on KCTV/5) with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo in the booth.
