A graphic made by the NFL's social team to celebrate Christmas may have predicted the eventual Super Bowl matchup.
As we now know, the 49ers and Chiefs will meet in Super Bowl 54. But if we had paid close attention to this graphic made on Christmas, we all could have bet on the 49ers and Chiefs making it to the big game. Let us explain.
Reddit user tom2727 discovered that in the graphic (seen below), the only two players wearing game pants in the photo are Patrick Mahomes and George Kittle. Everyone else (aside from Gardner Minshew) appears to be wearing sweatpants.

However, as someone else noted in the comments section, it does look like Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is wearing game pants as well, although it's difficult to see. But tom2727's heart was in the right place, because there is something else that only Mahomes and Kittle are doing: Mahomes and Kittle are the only two playing with dogs.
Coincidence? Yeah, probably.
But it's still interesting. And it will probably fuel conspiracy theorists who believe the NFL is scripted. If that is the case, then is there anything else we can take away from this graphic?
Here's some more information from Reddit user creepy_robot:
Above Mahomes is Henry of the Titans who is number 22 and is holding 12 cookies. The Chiefs have been to the playoffs 22 times and won the division 12 times. Above Kittle is Rodgers who the played in the NFCCG. In front of Rodgers is 4 lit candles. The Packers have won 4 SBs. Above Kittle is 4 stockings. The 49ers had 4 TDs in their championship game.
But can we tell who is going to win the big game?
Kittle is the only one opening a present, so maybe that signifies the 49ers getting the ultimate gift of a Super Bowl win. It most definitely doesn't, but it's fun to speculate.
