Birds’ Eye View: SUPER BOWL PREVIEW – Eagles-Chiefs

Here we are. The final game of the season. The Philadelphia Eagles (16-3) made it to the Super Bowl in the second season with Nick Sirianni and Jalen Hurts. They take on the team that has their former coach, Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs (16-3).

These teams played a season ago and it was a great game. Both quarterbacks went back-and-forth, but it was the Chiefs who came out on top, 42-30. Patrick Mahomes was 24-for-30 for 278 yards, five touchdowns and one interception. Tyreek Hill had 11 receptions for 186 yards and three touchdowns. Jalen Hurts went 32-for-48, 387 yards and two touchdowns.

Check out the highlights, keys to success and betting advice for tonight’s game.

Chiefs’ Keys to Success

  • Cover Hurts’ weapons + get at Hurts
  • Control the clock
  • Watch out for Gainwell and Brown…and Smith…and Goedert

Prediction: Eagles 35-31

There’s no doubt in my mind that this is a back-and-forth scoring game. It’ll probably be one of the more fun Super Bowls we’ve seen in ages with all the storylines in play for the game Sunday. I see the Eagles getting off to a hot start, but the Chiefs definitely right on their tail throughout the game. Somewhere in the second half, the Eagles break away and get the lead and a successful two-point conversion just to keep on top. That being said, I think the team has a lot of fire in them and gets their second Super Bowl.
