You can't have a Super Bowl without predictions, and you certainly can't have a Super Bowl featuring the 49ers without some Niner Noise predictions. So let's not waste any time and let's get started.
Prediction No. 1: George Kittle will record 75 yards and a touchdown in his Super Bowl return
We all remember the end of the 49ers last Super Bowl loss, where a despondent George Kittle is standing on the sideline and promising his return to the big game.
You know, this one:
So, yes. Kittle has somewhat of a large chip on his shoulder that will play out for this game. While it's doubtful against this powerful Chiefs defense that he'll have an all-time performance, he's going to be even more motivated than you'd think given this is a Super Bowl.
Kittle is a man of his word. Look at his normally cheerful face all serious and his usually chipper personality giving way to despair. Does that look like someone who's lying?
Indeed, 75 yards and a touchdown seems like a realistic stat line for Kittle. Given the Chiefs' fearsome front four having an advantage over the 49ers offensive line, Kittle might be seeing quite a few targets underneath.
