So, they meet again? 49ers vs. Chiefs for Super Bowl 58

What's different (or the same) now versus four years ago in the 49ers and Chiefs' previous Super Bowl matchup?

Some fresh kicks for the 49ers

Arguably one of the best kickers in the NFL played for the 49ers in Super Bowl 58: recently retired Robbie Gould, who finished his career with San Francisco.

Instead, rookie Jake Moody will be called up for the 49ers' array of extra points and field goals. Considering Moody has already missed two postseason field-goal tries, one being a block, it's fair to say there'll be some nerves with him on the field that didn't quite exist when Gould was doing the same thing.

Meanwhile, Harrison Butker is still on the Chiefs roster as he has played for Kansas City since 2017.

If the game comes down to it, the Niners may have to put faith in their first-year special teams player, hoping for a Gould-like result.
