49ers vs. Chiefs: Recent matchups haven’t been kind to San Francisco

The 49ers and Chiefs will face off in Super Bowl LVIII in what defensive end Nick Bosa called a perfect matchup for San Francisco.

Bosa was referring not necessarily to the head-to-head matchup between the clubs, but rather the chance for his club to cap their tough road back to the Super Bowl with some redemption against the team that defeated them in Super Bowl LIV to cap the 2019 season.

As for the head-to-head matchup, that one hasn’t been kind to the 49ers since the turn of the century. Here’s a look at each showdown between San Francisco and Kansas City since the year 2000:
