Super Bowl is set

Eagles vs. Chiefs matchup to make history

The Kansas City Chiefs will be playing the Philadelphia Eagles at Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona on Feb. 12.

Both teams finished the regular season as the No. 1 seed in their conferences. The Chiefs and Eagles both finished with a record of 14-3, creating an exciting matchup for the coveted Lombardi trophy.

This will be the third time Kansas City will be playing in the Super Bowl in the last five seasons. The Chiefs won in 2020 but lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021. Philadelphia will be looking to win another one since its last Super Bowl win in 2017.

The Eagles are coming off a convincing win in the NFC Conference Championship where they defeated the shorthanded San Fransisco 49ers 7-31. In the AFC Conference Championship, the Chiefs took down quarterback Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals with a field goal in the final seconds, beating them 20-23.

Both offenses are led by quarterbacks who are finalists for the NFL’s Most Valuable Player award. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes will try to win his second Super Bowl with Kansas City, while quarterback Jalen Hurts will attempt to win his first with the Eagles.

Philadelphia and Kansas City have great pass rushers to protect their star quarterbacks, giving them time to make plays will be crucial for them to come away with the victory.

One thing to watch leading up to the game are the Chief ’s injuries. Kansas City sustained multiple injuries in their Conference Championship game and will be hoping to get them all back by the start of the game.

Super Bowl LVII will also be the first time that two brothers will be playing each other in the Super Bowl. Tight end Travis Kelce of the Chiefs will be playing against his brother on the Eagles, center Jason Kelce. Some fans have already begun to call the game the “Kelce Bowl.”

It should be an entertaining matchup as both teams try to go down in history as Super Bowl Champions.
