Chiefs players also said that if SF scored a TD and then KC went and scored a TD, the Chiefs would have gone for 2 and there wouldn't have been a third possession.
Even if it played out that way, the Chiefs still have to make it. The analytics change a bit with Mahomes, but the 49ers stopped them inside the 5 a bunch and the Chiefs have actually not been great on 2PC the past few years. So there's still some positive for the 49ers that if the Chiefs wanted to do that, you have a chance to win by matching touchdowns.
I think being a Packers fan skews my judgement a bit because I have zero faith they will ever stop an opponent who's using all 4 downs in desperation mode.
So I would kick first because then you might stop them in 3 downs for a punt or FG. Then if the opponent scores in that first drive I would play it like it's my last possession and go for 2.
If I rooted for a team that I felt could actually gets stops my opinion might be different.

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!-H.S.T.
