Philly Sports Reports’ team’s Super Bowl predictions
Here are our picks!
Video version, featuring the Philly Sports Guy and EROCK:
Eagles 34, Chiefs 27
This is by far the Eagles’ most challenging this season. Obviously, it is the Super Bowl. But I think they are ready for it. Coming off of two weeks of resting and healing, they will be healthy. More healthy than the Chiefs. This game will be won in the trenches. And I think the Eagles have the advantage in that area. That Eagles defensive line will be able to get to the MVP Patrick Mahomes. In my opinion, those advantages should lead the Eagles to their second Lombardi Trophy.
Eagles 31, Chiefs 24
The Eagles are facing by far their toughest test this season in Patrick Mahomes and the Kanas City Chiefs. Mahomes, who just won the NFL’s MVP award, is definitely the best QB in the NFL but I do not think it will matter tomorrow. The Eagles have been the NFL’s best team all season long, and that will show in the Super Bowl. The Eagles have significant advantages in the running game, and on the defensive line that will be the difference.
Eagles 28, Chiefs 24
The biggest reason I think the Eagles pull off the win is they have the advantage in every skill position that isn’t quarterback and tight end. I think Mahomes’ ankle may be worse than it is chalked up to be, and I don’t think the Chiefs’ offense will be very effective against the run defense and the secondary. If the Eagles shut down Travis Kelce, I think the Chiefs will be in trouble. Another big reason I have faith in the Birds is that the Chiefs’ secondary is extremely suspect, with reserve players having to guard AJ Brown and Devonta Smith. The run game is something that travels well, and I believe that the Eagles run game will be that much more effective if Jalen Hurts can really punish the defense with his arm, where I think this is the weakest secondary the eagles have faced in the playoffs. I think Jalen Hurts has a legendary performer and leads the Eagles to victory.
For the sanity of my Dad and I, we need the Eagles to win. You know in Field of Dreams when the voice whispers, “Ease his pain.” That’s what we need. I will be a nervous wreck in the top row of State Farm Stadium today, I just hope it’s all worth it. Go Birds
