Harrison Butker and Jordan Mason, former Yellow Jackets, are poised to make an impact in Super Bowl LVIII. Butker, the Kansas City Chiefs' kicker, has experience in Super Bowls, playing in his third one. In contrast, Jordan Mason, a key depth piece for the San Francisco 49ers, seeks his first Super Bowl win. The Chiefs' solid defense, particularly in run defense, may provide Mason with opportunities, but Butker's history of making crucial kicks in high-stakes games suggests he may have a bigger impact. In a potentially lower-scoring game, Butker's role in making significant kicks is likely to be more prominent, as Mason's playing time has been limited recently. The game presents a rare chance for both former Yellow Jackets to shine, but Butker's potential for pivotal contributions appears greater.By the Numbers
