Kansas City Chiefs Vs San Francisco 49ers In Super Bowl LIV

FOOTBALL

In the NFL’s 100th season, Super Bowl LIV (54) is set with the Kansas City Chiefs squaring off against the San Francisco 49ers. The lineup features two head coaches who have never won a Super Bowl ring and clearly have something to prove this time around.

Here are some highlights from both Conference Championship games:

In the AFC, last season’s MVP Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth in a spectacular performance to beat the Tennessee Titans 35-24.  The Chiefs will make their first appearance in the Super Bowl in 50 years.

In the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers dominated the Green Bay Packers for a 37-20 win thanks to star performances from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and running back Raheem Mostert (who scored four touchdowns and rushed for 220 yards).

The Super Bowl is slated for Feb. 2 at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.

Drew Rosenhaus Terminated Relationship With Brown, Bengals/Browns Marijuana Petition, Giants Hire First Female Coach

FOOTBALL

Drew Rosenhaus terminated his relationship with troubled wide receiver Antonio Brown until Brown gets the help he needs. Brown was released from the Oakland Raiders at the beginning of the 2019 season then was picked up by the New England Patriots. After sexual assault allegations surfaced, he was released from the Patriots and is now currently a free agent (with no agent).

Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns fans are petitioning the State Medical Board of Ohio to legally obtain medical marijuana. Even though most submissions deal with medical illnesses, there was an actual detailed submission called “Bengals/Browns Fans” outlining the need for marijuana due to suffering from their teams’ losing season(s) and inability to ever win a Super Bowl.

BASEBALL

The San Francisco Giants hired the first female full-time coach in Major League Baseball history. Alyssa Nakken will be an assistant under Giants manager Gabe Kapler.

The Major League Baseball sign-stealing drama continues. After the Astros fired their GM and Manager on Monday, the Red Sox have now agreed to “part ways” with their manager Alex Cora. Cora participated in the cheating scandal when he was the bench coach for the Astros in 2017 and possibly in 2018 when he was the manager with the Red Sox.

Odell Beckham Jr. (a former LSU player and current Cleveland Brown wide receiver) created an online buzz when he was seen handing out what appeared to be cash to LSU players after they won the College Football National Championship.
