Antoine Griezmann makes bold prediction on Super Bowl race between Patrick Mahomes, Brock Purdy, Jalen Hurts and more

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs battled adversity and won the Super Bowl last season. The Chiefs quarterback battled through a serious ankle injury and led the way for his team against quality opponents like the Cincinnati Bengals and the Philadelphia Eagles in back-to-back games.

However, the Chiefs aren’t considered the clear favorite to win the Super Bowl this year. This season, the San Francisco 49ers, along with the Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, and Baltimore Ravens, have emerged as solid contenders to win the Lombardi Trophy.

Atletico Madrid star and World Cup winner Antoine Griezmann recently gave his thoughts about who can win the Super Bowl. He has picked Brock Purdy and the 49ers to get the job done this season and win their first Super Bowl since 1995.
Here’s what Griezmann said:

“What Shanahan, McCaffrey, and Purdy are doing is incredible. Every time we say, ‘Let’s see who they are facing’, ‘Let’s see how Purdy plays against the Eagles, against Dallas, against Chiefs.’ He always does it very well, they are my favorites to win the ring, and they’re earning it.”

When healthy, the 49ers are without a doubt the best team in football. They are coming off a big 42-19 win over the Eagles and have already beaten the Cowboys 42-10 this season. Griezmann’s prediction appears to be correct for the time being, but it will be interesting to see if they can go all the way.
