The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will be the participants in Super Bowl 57 after a weekend of exciting championship games. Arguably, the two best teams in the NFL are meeting in the upcoming Super Bowl.
The one seeded Eagles and Chiefs took care of business during championship weekend and will now play for the Super Bowl 57 trophy. The NFC Championship game was a much different story than the AFC Championship game.
The Eagles trounced the San Francisco 49ers, 31-7. Brock Purdy left the game in the first half with an injured elbow and was simply unable to drive the ball down the field. The 49ers were then left with their fourth string quarterback in Josh Johnson.
Johnson was no match for anything the Eagles threw at him. It was a lopsided affair, and even though the Eagles’ defense was going up against the 49ers’ fourth string QB, this victory continues to show just how good Philadelphia is.
They may have the best and deepest roster in the entire NFL, and much of it was built through the draft. In fact, outside of AJ Brown, every other starter on the offense was drafted or originally began their career with the team, which is a testament to building teams the right way in the NFL.
Kansas City does not have that type of offense, or not to the degree of Philly, but they’ve draft well at the important positions along the offensive line with Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith, tight end with Travis Kelce, and quarterback with Patrick Mahomes.
The Chiefs seem to enjoy playing in close games, as their 23-20 victory is yet another installment of them playing down to the wire. I do think they have concerns on both sides of the ball that could be taken advantage of, but at the end of the day, it doesn’t seem to matter who the Chiefs have on their roster, as they’ve been able to have sustained success for years.
