They compete in the National Football League as a member of the league’s National Football Conference West division. The 49ers plays its home games atLevi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California, located 38 miles southeast of San Francisco in the heart of Silicon Valley. Since 1988, the 49ers have been headquartered in Santa Clara.
The team was founded in 1946 as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference and joined the NFL in 1949 when the leagues merged. The 49ers were the first major league professional sports franchise based in San Francisco. The name “49ers” comes from the prospectors who arrived in Northern California during the California Gold Rush of 1849.
The team has had 19 head coaches and three of them have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame: Bill Walsh (2019), George Seifert (2020), and Jimmy Johnson (2020). Walsh led the team to five Super Bowls championship victories, more than any individual coach has accomplished with a single team; Seifert led them to two wins; Johnson led them one victory. Among all NFL coaches who have led at least one Super Bowl champion, only Tom Flores (two) has more than one Super Bowl win without having had previously served as head coach for another NFL team before becoming head coach of his first Super Bowl champion. In 2012, Johns Harbaugh became just the second person after Tom Coughlin to lead his respective conference’s championship game participants four times as head coach with his conference’s winningest franchises (Johns with Baltimore Ravens[AFC] and Coughlin with New York Giants[NFC]). Pete Carroll is also only one behind both Coughlin and Harbaugh after winning NFC Championships with Seattle Seahawks three times(2013-2014 & 2016).
In 2017, Kyle Shanahan became their head coach, making him only their sixth person to hold that position since 1949 and ended their playoff appearance drought dating back to 2013(post-Harbaugh). They won 13 games that season en route to their first NFC West title since 2012(also post-Harbaugh) and their first appearance in an NFC Championship game since 2013(again, post-Harbaugh). The following year they made it back-to-back NFC West titles after going 13–3 for a second consecutive season but lost 20–17 to eventual Super Bowl LIII champions New England Patriots in overtime of their NFC Championship game matchup.

Their Points Against

The 49ers gave up the fewest points in the league this season. That’s a big reason they’re heading to the Super Bowl.

In fact, they gave up just 129 points all season long. That’s an average of just over 8 points per game.

The next best team in the league was the Pittsburgh Steelers, who gave up 164 points. That’s an average of just over 10 points per game.

The Pittsburgh Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers have the number one defense in the NFL. They are a team that is known for their tough defense and their ability to stop the run. They have a lot of talented players on their defense and they are coached well.

Their Overall Record

The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Steelers compete in the National Football League (NFL), as a member club of the league’s American Football Conference (AFC) North division. Founded in 1933, the Steelers are the oldest franchise in the AFC.
In 1970, they joined the AFC following the merger with the rival NFL, and their history began to revolve around linebacker Jack Ham, safety Donnie Shell, running back Franco Harris, and head coach Chuck Noll’s “Steel Curtain” defense; end Dwight White, tackle Ernie Holmes, and cornerback Mel Blount were later added to give Pittsburgh its first championship team. They received a timely contribution from rookie defensive tackle “Mean Joe” Greene. In all, the Steelers won six Super Bowl titles in a span of eight years (1974, 1975, 1978, 1979, 1980, and 2006). The team played in eight Super Bowls (a record for any franchise), winning two more times since then (2009 and 2019).

The Steelers have won more division championships (23) than any other team in NFL history. Their total of 39 playoff appearances ranks second behind only New England’s 41.(NFL-wide standings below) They have played in 16 NFL Championship Games—more than any other NFL team—and have hosted more conference championship games (11) than any other team. The Steelers have won 8 AFC Championships; tied with New England for second place behind Oakland/Los Angeles’ 11 conference championships.(AFL-wide standings below) They qualified for the playoffs 33 times since 1971(including 2020), posted 19 seasons with at least 10 wins(including 2020), and made it to 12 AFC Championship Games between 1970 and 2020(including 2020).

Their Points Against

In the National Football League, the Pittsburgh Steelers have had the number one defense in terms of points against per game for four consecutive seasons. The Steelers’ success on defense has been a large part of their recent success as a team, as they have reached the playoffs in each of those four seasons and have won two Super Bowls.

The points against per game statistic is a good measure of a team’s defensive success, as it takes into account the number of points that are scored against the team regardless of when they are scored. It is worth noting that the Steelers’ defense has been especially strong in the fourth quarter of games, as they have only allowed their opponents to score an average of 3.1 points per game in the fourth quarter over the past four seasons.

The Steelers’ defensive success is due to a number of factors, including their strong pass rush and their ability to create turnovers. The team is led by linebacker James Harrison, who has been named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year in two of the past four seasons. Harrison is joined by a number of other talented players on the Steelers’ defense, including safety Troy Polamalu and nose tackle Casey Hampton.
