What channel is the Super Bowl on today? Time, TV schedule for Chiefs vs. 49ers

Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks for his third Super Bowl ring with the Kansas City Chiefs, but faces a tall task in taking down a dominant San Francisco 49ers team in this clash of titans.

The former Texas Tech quarterback leads his Chiefs into Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada, with Kansas City hoping to become the first team to win back-to-back championships since Tom Brady led the Patriots to consecutive wins in the 2004 and 2005 NFL seasons.

The 49ers will look to counteract the firepower of the Patrick Mahomes-Travis Kelce connection with their own offensive stardom. Led by Brock Purdy, dubbed the annual "Mr. Irrelevant" after being picked last in the 2022 NFL draft, San Francisco will hope to dominate the run game with running back Christian McCaffrey and dual-threat receiver Deebo Samuel.

The game promises a chess match between two of the best coaches in football, the Chiefs' Andy Reid and the 49ers' Kyle Shanahan. The 49ers are seeking their sixth Lombardi Trophy, having last won in 1994, while the Chiefs look for their third championship win in five years, a historic run that would be Mahomes' crowning achievement thus far.
