Eagles and Chiefs to Face Off in Super Bowl

Eitan Greenberg, Sports Editor

Super Bowl LVII will take place on Sunday, Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m. between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams were the number one seed in their respective conferences. 

This year’s Super Bowl has an expected audience of over 100 million people. The game marks the first time that both teams’ starting quarterbacks will be black: Jalen Hurts for Philadelphia and Patrick Mahomes for Kansas City. Additionally, it will be the first Super Bowl where brothers will play against each other with Eagles’ Jason Kelce and Chiefs’ Travis Kelce. 

To reach the Super Bowl, the Eagles beat the San Francisco 49ers 31-7, while the Chiefs scored a last-second field goal to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals, 23-20.

The two quarterbacks are considered some of the best in the league, with the prospective candidates for the Most Valuable Player Award being Mahomes and Hurts. 

Experts are torn on who they suspect will take home the Lombardi Trophy, but Philadelphia is currently the betting favorite.
