2023 Super Bowl Preview
By Jack McMurtree
It's that time of the year again - the Super Bowl is this Sunday. This year it's the Chiefs vs. the Eagles at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 12 at 4:30 PM. The Eagles finished the season with a record at 14-3, the best in the NFC, and the Chiefs led the AFC at 14-3.
Both franchises have been on this stage recently: the Chiefs won it all in 2021, and the Eagles triumphed in 2018, when backup QB Nick Foles took over for an injured Carson Wentz.
But this isn’t the same Eagles team as in 2018, and the new faces will have plenty to prove to the Philadelphia diehards. New Head Coach Nick Sirianni and QB Jalen Hurts are looking to win their first championship and the franchise’s second.
Kansas City has an advantage when it comes to experience, as QB Patrick Mahomes and Head Coach Andy Reid have been to two Super Bowls.
This is going to be a good game with high-power offenses and good defense. The weakness for the Chiefs is their secondary, while the Eagles’ biggest liability is inexperience.
Who will win?
I'm taking the Eagles: they can throw and run the football, and, so long as they can keep Mahomes off the field with their stellar defense, the birds should soar.
