Two terrific and efficient offensive units are going to be on display in Super Bowl LIV. The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers both finished the 2019 regular season as top-5 scoring offences, and haven't disappointed in the NFL playoffs thus far. In four combined games this postseason, the lowest amount of points scored by either side in a single game was 27 (Niners vs. Vikings).
The Cincinnati Reds have been more than aggressive on the market in the last two years in their effort of ending a seven-year postseason drought. They made another statement, signing former Tigers and Cubs outfielder Nicholas Castellanos to a four-year contract, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.
