The Philadelphia Eagles will face the Kansas City Chiefs : NPR
The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles won their respective conferences and will face off in Super Bowl 57 in what will be an intriguing matchup.
The Chiefs beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in Sunday’s AFC championship. Harrison Butker kicked a 45 yard field goal with 3 seconds left to give the victory to the Chiefs.
The game was a rematch of last year’s conference championship game, which the Bengals won. This is the third Super Bowl in four years for the Chiefs, anchored by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and head coach Andy Reid.
Earlier on Sunday, the Eagles defeated the San Francisco 49ers in less dramatic fashion, winning 31-7 to clinch the NFC championship title. This will be the second Super Bowl appearance for the Eagles in six years, the last victory in 2018. It will also be the team’s first appearance with second-year head coach Nick Sirianni, and third-year quarterback Jalen Hurts.
The matchup pits Reid against the Eagles, a team he has coached for 14 seasons, including one year he guided the team to a Super Bowl loss to the New England Patriots. It’s also a meeting between Travis and Jason Kelce, marking the first Super Bowl game between brothers who are players. The matchup will also include two of the main contenders for the NFL’s most valuable player, in quarterbacks Hurts and Mahomes.
The Super Bowl will be played on February 12 in Arizona.
