Why the Eagles can cover
Philadelphia had little difficulty reaching the Super Bowl for the fourth time in franchise history after it rolled past the Giants and 49ers by a combined 69-14 score. The Eagles led the NFL with 70 sacks during the regular season, falling two shy of the record, and are first this postseason with eight. Linebacker Haason Reddick has racked up 16 sacks this season, including 3.5 in the 2023 NFL playoffs. The Eagles are giving up just 195.5 yards per game during the postseason.
Philadelphia’s offense also features a plethora of playmakers. The Eagles feature a dynamic duo on the outside in A.J. Brown and Devonta Smith. Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner, finished the regular season ninth in receiving yards (1,196) and 11th in receptions (95). Brown also had a stellar regular season for the Eagles, recording 88 receptions for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns. See which team to pick here.
Why the Chiefs can cover
Kansas City did not run the ball well this season, as it ranked 20th with an average of 115.9 yards on the ground. It has had even less success in the 2023 NFL playoffs, averaging 93 yards without recording a rushing touchdown. The high-ankle sprain suffered by Patrick Mahomes in the Divisional Round has not helped, but there are several factors that suggest the Chiefs’ ground attack could rebound against Philadelphia.
The Eagles possess a strong defense that was second in the league (301.5 yards) during the regular season, but it was tied for 16th against the run (121.6). Meanwhile, seventh-round draft pick Isiah Pacheco had a solid rookie season for the Chiefs in 2022, recording 830 yards on the ground and leading the team with five rushing touchdowns. The 23-year-old, who ran for 95 yards against Jacksonville in his playoff debut, could have company in the backfield after Clyde Edwards-Helaire was activated from injured reserve this week and may see his first action since suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 11.
