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.
