The Eagles last played in the Super Bowl in 2017, where they beat the New England Patriots and are now coming back to win another. It will not be easy as their opponents are also hungry for a win. That opponent is the AFC Champion Kansas City Chiefs. They are playing in their third Super Bowl as they played in back-to-back games from 2020-2021 and have won once in their past two trips.

Only four teams in the league rushed for more yards per game than the Eagles (147.6). On the other hand, the Chiefs averaged 115.9 yards per game on the ground (20th in the NFL) and totaled just 417 running plays. The Eagles run game will be key to keep Patrick Mahomes on the sideline.

The Chiefs maintain their highly effective offense with QB Patrick Mahomes at the helm and receiver Travis Kelce still forcing his way through defenses.

Can the Eagles cover Travis Kelce? Nobody really can, but the Eagles may be closer than most teams. Their linebackers had stellar pass-defense coverage stats. T.J. Edwards allowed 3.6 yards per target with a 74% success rate. Kyzir White allowed 3.7 yards per target with a 63% success rate.
