NFL 12/02/23

  • This week we will witness the highly anticipated Super Bowl LVII.
  • The Kansas City Chiefs will be facing the Philadelphia eagles.
  • Although the Chiefs have the likes of Mahomes at Quarterback and Chris Jones as defensive lineman, the Eagles are the favorites to win the match.
  • The eagles have the best roster in the NFL from 1 to 53, pulling up 70 sacks during the regular season.
  • The Chiefs' defense is definitely a weakness the Eagles will like to exploit, allowing a touchdown on 67.3% of opponent trips inside the 20 yard line.
  • The Chiefs are also experiencing multiple injuries from their last game against the Bengals. Mahomes has a high ankle sprain whilst the likes of Kadarius Toney, Juju Smith Schuster and Mercole Hardman all left Sunday's game with injuries.
  • All things considered, a fully fit Mahomes may shift the course of the game, he is the league best Quarterback and will likely receive another MVP of the season award. To believe that the Eagles will dominate the Chiefs is naïve.
