Over the weekend the NFL’s four best teams battled for an opportunity to play in Super Bowl LVII.
In the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles were up against the San Francisco 49ers. In the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs played the Cincinnati Bengals. The Eagles and 49ers were up first; in what was supposed to be a close battle, the Eagles stunned San Francisco, winning 31-7. The 49ers were dealing with quarterback issues and stood no chance against the number 1 seed Eagles.
The Chiefs and Bengals matched up next. As a viewer, this game was fun to watch but stressful. The Chiefs won 23-20 because of the late heroics from Patrick Mahomes and kicker Harrison Butker, who had the game winning 43-yard field goal.
Super Bowl LVII will be the Philadelphia Eagles vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. The much anticipated game has a few highly notable headlines.
Head coach for the Chiefs, Andy Reid, was the former Eagles head coach for 13 seasons. He was fired in 2012 and now seeks revenge against the franchise that gave up on him.
Junior Danny Macis said, “He deserves the win after the Eagles franchise disrespected him and fired him.”
Probably the most notable headline is the Kelce brothers. Jason Kelce of the Eagles, and Travis Kelce of the Chiefs are the first pair of brothers to face off against each other in the Super Bowl in NFL history. What makes this matchup so special is that these two brothers are both stars and captains for their teams. The “Kelce Bowl” will be amazing to watch for fans but even more for the entire Kelce family.
I think this will be an amazing game, and one I will not miss second of. I predict the Chiefs win 30-27.
Senior Joey Bowes said, “The Chiefs should win easily, and Mahomes should bring home his second Super Bowl MVP.”
