Future Pro Football Hall of Famer Drew Brees gives his thoughts on the Chiefs and 49ers: "We're talking about a super explosive offense...Mahomes' ability just to make plays when there's nothing there…the challenge that the 49ers present is that they have an excellent front seven, and lots of subbing in that can play ball too. And then their back end is very good. So there's no weak link on that defense..."
