The Chiefs might be underdogs to the 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII next Sunday, but there's one underrated factor that should terrify San Francisco fans.

Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, the home of the matchup, is an indoor stadium. That means that unlike the frigid conditions in the Wild Card win over the Dolphins and Divisional Round victory against the Bills, this will be optimal weather in a dome.

In Patrick Mahomes' entire career, that's typically mean terrible, terrible things for opposing defenses.

For a quarterback that's already played essentially perfect football in this postseason run despite the poor weather, the temperature-controlled environment should make Mahomes even more dominant than he already is.

He's a perfect 4-0 in Allegiant Stadium in his career, covering the spread in each of the last three road victories over the Raiders.

While Brock Purdy will have the same good fortune in the dome, there's no denying how impressive Mahomes' numbers are, both indoors and in the playoffs.

There are a lot of reasons to like the Chiefs' chances to hoist a third Lombardi Trophy in the last five seasons. Mahomes and Travis Kelce are the NFL's most decorated playoff connection and they'll have every opportunity to build on their illustrious postseason statistics.

Not only is the location great news for the Chiefs' offense, but fans making the trip will enjoy the conditions as well. Here's hoping we'll soon be preparing for another parade.
