Chiefs 23-20 Eagles. On paper, Philly are the higher group. That offensive line is simply so sturdy, and they’re going to have success establishing the run to manage the clock early on. However shut video games are determined by the moments when every thing goes off script, and who manages these higher than Mahomes? It’s not nearly him, both. Are we but able to put Sirianni above Reid, who has given Kansas Metropolis probably the greatest many years of any group in NFL historical past? Nicky Bandini
Eagles 34-28 Chiefs. Philadelphia prime Kansas Metropolis in nearly each division. They’ve one of the best offensive line within the NFL by far. They’ve one of the best, handiest defensive entrance. Entrance to again, they’ve one of the best protection within the league. Mahomes continues to be battling a excessive ankle sprain. The Chiefs receiving corps is depleted. They usually’re taking part in a historic variety of rookies on protection. All indicators level to the Eagles operating over an undermanned KC aspect. However the Chiefs have one of the best quarterback within the recreation, taking part in on the apex of his powers. The Eagles ought to win, however Mahomes, Kelce and Jones will hold it shut. Oliver Connolly
Eagles 29-24 Chiefs. The Chiefs are going to attain touchdowns on this recreation, that’s the one prediction right here that this author is 100% assured about. The Eagles, nevertheless, have been essentially the most full group all common season and have plowed their approach via the competitors within the postseason. If this recreation hinges on a handful of errors, it feels just like the Eagles are the group greatest certified to show these into factors. That could be the distinction in a Tremendous Bowl that ought to go all the way down to the wire. Hunter Felt
Eagles 33-16 Chiefs. Philadelphia have the NFL’s greatest offensive line and one of the best line of defense. They’ve been the deepest and most full group throughout the board all season they usually’re the more healthy aspect getting into Sunday’s recreation. And but someway the specialists are nonetheless underestimating them: the Chiefs had been put in as two-and-a-half-point favorites earlier than the general public spoke with their wallets, swinging the road in the Eagles’ direction inside quarter-hour. So long as the ankle holds up, Mahomes’ routine incandescence paired with one of many sport’s greatest ever game-planners in Reid will hold the end result unsure till the championship rounds, the place the physique blows will mount and the Eagles’ class will inform. Bryan Graham
Eagles 31-22 Chiefs. The Eagles are higher and deeper throughout nearly each unit. Offensive line? Examine. Receiving corps? Working recreation? Secondary? Examine. Examine. Examine. The Chiefs, in fact, boast one of the best quarterback within the recreation, to not point out one of the best tight finish. However with Mahomes three weeks faraway from a excessive ankle sprain, his receivers banged up and an inexperienced nook group, the Eagles have extra viable lanes the place they’ll prevail.
