  A look at some key stats and numbers for the Super Bowl MIAMI (AP) After more than 4,000 plays, 1,000 points and 125 touchdowns between them, there are countless numbers that tell the story of how the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs made it to the Super Bowl. The Chiefs have relied on a big-play passing game led by Patrick Mahomes, while the Niners have had plenty of success on the defensive side.Here's a look at some key numbers for both teams that could help determine which team wins the game. (All stats courtesy of SportRadar unless otherwise specified):64.6. The Chiefs passed the ball on 64.

4 — Fourth-quarter comebacks this season by the 49ers, who were tied for the league lead in that category. Kansas City had two.

6 — The 49ers can win their sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy, tying the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers for the most all-time.

19.3 — That’s the average number of points per game surrendered by the Chiefs defense this season, which is actually one decimal point better than San Francisco’s D. The 49ers defense gets a lot more credit, and there’s little doubt that unit has more talent now that it’s extremely healthy again. But don’t overlook a Chiefs D that is also pretty healthy and gave up just 10.4 points per game in the final five weeks of the regular season.

You can still watch the Super Bowl for free on Roku

  You can still watch the Super Bowl for free on Roku Last night, Fox apps were pulled from Roku, which left users who were planning to watch Super Bowl LIV via those apps scrambling. While Fox and Roku work out their differences, the NFL says there is nothing to worry about. The league will stream the game via its free Roku app, NFL spokesman Alex Riethmiller told Fast Company. There is one caveat: the NFL app won't stream the game in 4K HDR. If you refuse to watch the big game in anything but 4K, you can check out our guide to watching the Super Bowl via cable and satellite TV, streaming or online livestreams.

131.7 — That’s Mahomes’ passer rating these playoffs. He’s practically been perfect, especially considering his receivers have dropped a ridiculous eight passes in two games this month.

207 — Career wins by Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who’s the only head coach in modern NFL history with over 200 regular-season wins and no championships. His opponent, Kyle Shanahan has 23 career wins.

471 — That’s the total number of rushing yards recorded by the 49ers this postseason. Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman are averaging 5.9 yards per attempt.

4,995 — That’s the total number of receiving yards registered by tight ends Travis Kelce and George Kittle the last two seasons. Each has more than 2,400 yards since the start of 2018, while no other tight end has 2,100 yards during that stretch. This could be one of the most epic tight end battles in NFL history.
