Eagles vs. Chiefs Prediction on February 12, 2023
It’s definite that the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will play in men’s American football Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, February 12, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. In the NFC Championship Game, the Eagles easily defeated the San Francisco 49ers, and the Chiefs defeated the Cincinnati Bengals to win the AFC. The match for the 2022-23 NFL title sets off at 4:30 PM local time. Even though the Super Bowl’s first play isn’t for another week, we’re already analyzing the matchup by examining each club in more detail to provide some preliminary gut-reaction forecasts. The odds of the best mobile bookmakers are launched too so let’s start!
The top-seeded Eagles and Chiefs will face off in the Super Bowl, with Kansas City tight end Travis Kelce and Philadelphia center Jason Kelce making history as the first brothers to go against each other for the title. Both played key roles in their team’s success, with the older Kelce serving as one of quarterback Jalen Hurts’ protectors for the Eagles and the younger Kelce serving as Patrick Mahomes’ most dependable and preferred target for Kansas City (21 catches, three touchdowns in the 2022 postseason). The Eagles are participating in their first Super Bowl since defeating the Patriots in 2017, while the Chiefs are back after a year away. Additionally, this year’s Super Bowl will feature the youngest combined age of starting quarterbacks in the game’s history, in addition to Chiefs coach Andy Reid playing against his former team. The two-week break before the last game will be helpful for both signal-callers, who are both struggling with injuries. Mahomes, who threw two touchdown passes against the Bengals in the AFC Championship Game, is recovering from a high ankle sprain he suffered in the divisional round, and Hurts is still getting his bearings after suffering a late-season shoulder injury. The current form of Chiefs With Mahomes at quarterback, the Chiefs (14-3 in Regular Season; top seed in AFC) always believe they have a shot against strong opposition. With the win over the Bengals, he improved to 10-3 in the postseason. The Chiefs are certain they can defeat any defensive opponent because they lead the league in scoring (28.2 points per game) and yards per play (6.4) during the regular season. Defensive tackle Chris Jones is a key player for the Chiefs in their ability to apply pressure to the opposing quarterback. They came in second to the Eagles in sacks with 55. They overcame a few weaknesses during the regular season and thus far in the playoffs, but will they be able to do so against the Eagles? In the regular season, the Chiefs’ defense was porous in the red zone, allowing a 54.4 QBR (third-worst in the NFL) against opposition quarterbacks. They were the only club among the worst six to make the playoffs, conceding a touchdown on 67.3% of opponent trips inside the 20-yard line during the regular season (their ranking was 31st). And Philadelphia’s offense, which was third, scored on 67.8% of their field goals in the red zone. The current form of Eagles The Eagles (14-3 in Regular Season, top seed in NFC), led by Hurts, have probably the strongest roster from top to bottom in the NFL. Finding a weakness is challenging. High-quality offensive line? They got it. Playmakers on the offensive? They got it. At all three defense levels filled with quality players? They got it. The Eagles’ pass rush sticks out perhaps more than anything else, as they registered 70 sacks throughout the regular season, which ranks third in NFL history. For a large portion of the season, the Eagles were the league leaders in interceptions before losing steam later on. They had gone seven games without more than one turnover coming into the NFC Championship Game, however, they did recover three fumbles against the 49ers. On Christmas Eve, they faced the Cowboys’ most complete offense to date. In a 40-34 loss to Philadelphia, Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes and threw for 347 yards, demonstrating that it’s at least conceivable to pierce what has typically been a very stingy defense. Head-to-head encounters The Kansas City Chiefs have a record of 5-4 versus the Eagles all-time.
The Eagles are our pick for the win. Despite the excellence of Mahomes, Kelce, and Jones, Philadelphia is the more complete team because of their ability to control games with their offensive and defensive lines. The Eagles’ win is estimated at 1.82 on FanDuel.
