MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (WTHR) — All season, the NFL has been celebrating its 100th season.

Now it's time to crown a champion.

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will face off with the San Francisco 49ers at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium in Super Bowl LIV. The matchup between the Chiefs and 49ers is considered one of the most even in Super Bowl history, with Kansas City a 1.5-point favorite over San Francisco, according to multiple sportsbooks.

Will the Chiefs' explosive offense prove too much to handle for the 49ers' dominant defense? Or will Nick Bosa and San Francisco manage to slow down one of the league's best quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes? We'll find out soon.

What follows will be a live blog of Super Bowl LIV, complete with highlights, score updates and analysis of "the big game" as it happens.

Fourth quarter

5:18: 49ers 20, Chiefs 17: 49ers go three and out and run less than a minute off the clock in the process. Kansas City takes over at its own 35-yard line following a punt.

6:13: 49ers 20, Chiefs 17: Facing a 3rd and 15 from his own 35-yard line, Patrick Mahomes find Tyreek Hill for a 44-yard gain. Following a pass interference call on third down, Mahomes finds Travis Kelce for a 1-yard touchdown to bring the Chiefs within three points.

8:53: 49ers 20, Chiefs 10: Garoppolo finds Kittle for a 12-yard gain but that's the only damage the 49ers are able to do as a one-yard run, incompletion, false start and ill-fated Garopollo scramble forces a San Francisco punt.

11:57: 49ers 20, Chiefs 10: Mahomes had the Chiefs rolling and threatening to score before a pass intended for Tyreek Hill gets intercepted by Tarvarius Moore. 49ers take over at their own 20-yard line.

Third quarter

2:35: 49ers 20, Chiefs 10: Niners take the first two-score lead of the game as three Garoppolo completions set the stage for a Raheem Mostert 1-yard touchdown.

5:23: 49ers 13, Chiefs 10: The Chiefs avoid disaster when they manage to recover a Nick Bosa strip sack. But on the very next play, Patrick Mahomes throws an interception to linebacker Fred Warner and the 49ers take over on their own 45-yard line.

9:29: 49ers 13, Chiefs 10: 49ers put together a solid opening drive to the second half, including a 14-yard gain to Juszczyk. The drive stalls outside of the red zone, but the 49ers still manage to take the lead thanks to a 42-yard field goal by Robbie Gould.

Second quarter

0:00: Chiefs 10, 49ers 10: Garoppolo finds George Kittle for a 42-yard pass, but the play is called back for offensive pass interference as the first half comes to an end.

0:59: Chiefs 10, 49ers 10: For the first time since their opening drive, a Chiefs possession fails to end in points, with Kansas City forced to punt after only amassing 30 yards on seven plays. San Francisco takes over at its own 20 after a touchback.

5:05: Chiefs 10, 49ers 10: Jimmy Garoppolo answers back, engineering a 7-play, 80-yard drive of his own, which he caps with a 15-yard touchdown pass to fullback Kyle Juszczyk to tie the game.

9:32: Chiefs 10, 49ers 3: Mahomes engineers another impressive drive, but an incomplete pass intended for Sammy Watkins leaves the Chiefs facing a 4th and 7 at the Niners' 13-yard line. Rather than going for it, Andy Reid takes the points with a 31-yard Harrison Butker field foal pushing Kansas City's lead to 7.

14:08: Chiefs 7, 49ers 3: Jimmy Garoppolo is intercepted by Chiefs defensive back Bashaud Breeland, giving Kansas City the ball at their own 44-yard line.

First quarter

0:31: Chiefs 7, 49ers 3: Chiefs put together an impressive drive of their own with Mahomes gaining 10 yards on the ground on a 3rd and 11 and Damien Williams getting a crucial fourth down conversion. Mahomes then punches it in from the 1 on an option play as the Chiefs take a 7-3 lead.

7:57: 49ers 3, Chiefs 0: 49ers put together an impressive drive, highlighted by a 25-yard Deebo Samuel reverse. The Chiefs hold strong just outside the red zone, however, forcing a Jimmy Garoppolo incompletion on 3rd and 5 from the 25-yard line to set up a 38-yard Robbie Gould field goal.

13:55: Chiefs 0, 49ers 0: Damien Williams opens the game with a 7-yard pitch, but the 49ers pressure forces two straight incompletions on Patrick Mahomes. 49ers take over at their own 18-yard line after a punt.
