Super Bowl LVIII arrives on Sunday, Feb. 11, with the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers squaring off with the Lombardi Trophy in the balance. It is the first Super Bowl ever held in Las Vegas, with Allegiant Stadium serving as the host site for the biggest spectacle in American sports.
In advance of kick-off — which is set for approximately 6:30 p.m. ET but, let’s face it, it never starts exactly when they say — many will weigh in on various angles, from widespread sports betting interest, personal storylines, individual stardom, and simply the team most likely to win the championship. In this space, we’ll take a “by the numbers” look, running the gamut on statistical factoids to monitor.
Here we go, from largest to smallest:
2,000: 49ers star Christian McCaffrey is one of four players to make the Super Bowl in the same season in which they accumulated at least 2,000 yards from scrimmage.
1,254: Patrick Mahomes has 1,254 passing yards in four career games at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. He can become the only active quarterback with a 5-0 or better record at any NFL stadium with a win.
1,020: George Kittle led all NFL tight ends with 1,020 receiving yards this season.
816: Chiefs rookie WR Rashee Rice has more yards after catch (816) than any player in the NFL this season, including playoffs.

156: Travis Kelce holds the all-time NFL record with 156 playoff receptions.
