It’s Pro Bowl week, which usually means NFL fans can take a nap on Sunday during the game. But it also means another week of preparation for the real thing, the Super Bowl. As the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers get ready to square off in the big game, SB Nation’s FanPulse put their feelers out to see just what the fans were thinking when it comes to their favorite to win Super Bowl 54.

There is still time left, and a lot can change leading up to the game, but as of right now fans like Patrick Mahomes and company to claim the first Chiefs’ Super Bowl trophy for the first time in over 50 years.

Check out the graphic which shows what NFL fans are thinking a week away from the game:

It is a classic case of strength vs. strength. The stout 49ers defense vs. the dynamic Chiefs offense. Who will win? Only time will tell, but the FanPulse extended to which coach is better suited to bring home the Lombardi trophy, and, of course, the fans took the experience of Andy Reid over Kyle Shanahan.

Check out the data:

Both coaches are offensive gurus, but with Reid being the only one with any experience in the big game likely swayed voters.

For Pittsburgh Steelers fans they are giddy with excitement over the upcoming game. For the first time in a long time Tom Brady and the New England Patriots aren’t representing the AFC in the Super Bowl, and throw in the fact the 14-2 Baltimore Ravens were eliminated in the AFC Divisional Round makes it even sweeter.

If the Steelers can’t play in the Super Bowl, then their rivals shouldn’t either. Misery loves company. Be sure to check back to BTSC for the latest news and notes on the upcoming Super Bowl, and all the black-and-gold news as the team prepares for another lengthy offseason.
