GLENDALE, ARIZONA - FEBRUARY 12: Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs scrambles away from Jordan Davis #90 of the Philadelphia Eagles during the third quarter in Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium on February 12, 2023 in Glendale, Arizona.

The rematch of last year’s Super Bowl is about to take place on Monday night between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, and one could argue that it might be a preview of this year’s Big Game come February.

We shall see.

The Eagles and Chiefs boast the two best records in the NFL so far this season. Although one has to wonder about the Chiefs. They haven’t really looked like the defending champs this year as the offense has struggled — even with Patrick Mahomes leading the way. The Chiefs are averaging only 23 points per game which puts them in the middle of the pack.

Kansas City’s defense has really bailed this team out this season so far.

On the flip side the Eagles boast one of the best offenses in the League, they are second in total offense, and a defense that is middling.
The last two games for the Eagles have been track meets against the Washington Commanders and Dallas Cowboys, and Jalen Hurts — who is a legit MVP candidate, has had issues with turnovers.

The issues for both teams are why one could argue this year’s run to Las Vegas is wide open. The Ravens, 49ers, Lions, Jaguars, and Dolphins could all make the claim for an upset of either KC or Philly come January.

Til then, let’s soak in the rematch.

  • PHILADELPHIA (8-1) @ KANSAS CITY (7-2) (-2.5) - 8:15 MNF on ABC

    Easily the Game of the Week. The Eagles offense has picked it up nicely the past three weeks since their 20-14 loss to the Jets in early October, but the defense has been vulnerable. This will be a very tough test to head to Aarrowhead to slow down Patrick Mahomes and company. Problem is the Chiefs haven’t been putting up points at historic levels like they have in the past. Perhaps the lack of a big playmaker outside of Travis Kelce is holding this team back? Revenge can only go so far in a game like this. It will come down to which team is better prepared to handle the moment in the fourth quarter. PICK: CHIEFS 27 – EAGLES 24

  • NY JETS (4-5) @ BUFFALO (5-5) (-7.0) - 4:25 CBS

    The Jets limp into Buffalo with an offense that has gone 11 quarters without finding the end zone. Zach Wilson has looked lost under center, and Gang Green has been snakebite by self inflicted wounds from penalties to dropped passes and an O-Line that can’t stop a nosebleed. It won’t get any easier this week up in Buffalo. This is a revenge game for the Bills, who are not only looking to get past last week’s crusher vs. Denver, but want to get even for losing to the Jets in Week 1. This will get U-G-L-Y!

    PICK: BILLS 20 – JETS 6 

  • PITTSBURGH (6-3) @ CLEVELAND (6-3) (-2.5) - 1:00 CBS

    The Browns are in crisis mode right now after word came down this week that DeShaun Watson would miss the rest of the year with a a shoulder injury. He had an injury plagued year, but the Browns have found ways to win without true certainty under center. Things could get rough for Cleveland this week with rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson under center for the Browns. Expect the Steelers and T.J. Watt to key in on the rook. Somehow the Steelers have gotten enough offense with Kenny Pickett at quarterback. They will again this week.

    PICK: STEELERS 23 – BROWNS 14 

  • LAS VEGAS (5-5) @ MIAMI (6-3) (-13.5) - 1:00 CBS

    The Vegas Raiders are 2-0 under interim Head Coach Antonio Pierce. They needed some good fortune and a bad Jets offense to win last Sunday night. This will be a different animal on Sunday when they hit the road to South Beach to face the high powered Dolphins. Miami is coming off a bye week and know full well if they take care of business the AFC East is theirs for the taking.
    PICK: DOLPHINS 27 – RAIDERS 20 

  • NY GIANTS (2-8) @ WASHINGTON (4-6) (-8.5)

    Not much to say here. Two teams going nowhere. Washington should win, but nothing would surprise if the Giants — who some think are tanking — find a way to a game like this, and a couple more before the season is out. Tommy DeVito’s second start. PICK: UPSET SPECIAL: GIANTS 19 – COMMANDERS 14 

  • MINNESOTA (6-4) @ DENVER (4-5) (-3.0) - 8:25 NBC SNF

    Will the Josh Dobbs train continue for another week? Dobbs has been a revelation since the Vikings acquired him three weeks ago in a trade with the Arizona Cardinals. He has kept the Vikes afloat after the season ending injury to Kurt Cousins. Expect a stiff challenge from the Broncos however on Sunday night. The Broncos are starting to feel a groove right now. They won on the road last week in Buffalo, and have won three in a row. Something’s gotta give in this match-up, but it feels like Denver might be turning the corner with Russell Wilson, Sean Payton and crew. PICK: BRONCOS 24 – VIKINGS 21
