Why Bosa's toughest Super Bowl test is Chiefs' Taylor originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area
Nick Bosa has a tough test waiting for him at Allegiant Stadium.
Taylor, the Chiefs right tackle, allowed the longest average time to pressure among all offensive tackles with at least 300 pass blocking snaps this season (3.97 seconds, including playoffs), per Next Gen Stats.
If there’s something Bosa is known for, though, it’s his ability to apply constant pressure on signal-callers from the left edge position.
During Super Bowl LIV, the 26-year-old pressured Mahomes nine times.
Years later, Bosa’s impact on the field hasn’t lost steam.
The 49ers All-Pro defensive end needs 11 pressures on Sunday to set the single-season record since 2018, per NGS.
With 104 pressures entering Sunday, Bosa ranks in the top four since the start of the season, making the edge rusher’s matchup against Taylor a must-watch as both teams rush for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
