Super Bowl Preview


Karly Wampler, Writer

There is one game left in the NFL, and this Sunday, you can see the last two teams standing in the Super Bowl. This year, the teams are the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Kansas City Chiefs. This is definitely going to be a good game. This Super Bowl is making history with it being the first ever where the starting quarterbacks are both of black descent. The Eagles won their last Super Bowl in 2017. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are returning to their third Super Bowl appearance in the Patrick Mahomes era. So, which team has a better chance at winning? Let’s take a look at what some experts are saying.

The Kansas City Chiefs have a lot more experience in the Super Bowl, and sometimes that helps teams thrive in the Super Bowl. They already know how to deal with the pressure of a championship on the line. Another plus for Kansas City is that ranked Patrick Mahomes as the best quarterback in the league. Even though Tyreek Hill left this season for Miami, Kansas City played like he was never there. Mahomes has some of the greatest players he can throw to like Travis Kelce, Jerick McKinnon, and JuJu Smith-Schuster. This team has great chemistry, and does well under pressure.

The Philadelphia Eagles aren’t really experienced in the Super Bowl. Yes, they did win it in 2017, but there are only 7 players left from that team. ranked Jalen Hurts as the second best quarterback this season. He also has some great players he can throw to with A.J. Brown, and DeVonta Smith.

As of right now, the Eagles are the favorite to win, but it isn’t a big lead over the Chiefs. This could change as we get closer to the Super Bowl because some players that are on the injured/reserve list are coming back to play in the Super Bowl as the days go on.
