Super Bowl 57


Dylan Grewell, Staff Writer

The Super Bowl this year is in Glendale, Arizona at State Farm Stadium. State Farm Stadium is home to the Arizona Cardinals. This is the 57th Super Bowl in the history of the NFL. Super Bowl 57 consists of The Philadelphia Eagles and The Kansas City Chiefs. The Eagles played the 49ers in the NFC championship and they won 31-7. 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy got hurt early in the game so the 49ers had to bring in backup quarterback Josh Johnson. Johnson ended up also getting hurt and that left the 49ers with really no options. Purdy came back injured and the 49ers never really had a chance to win the game. The Eagles were rolling and they could not be stopped. They were very impressive and they looked like a championship team. On the other hand, the AFC championship game was a nail biter. The Cincinnati Bengals traveled to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs. It was really close the whole entire game until the last possession and the Chiefs drove down the field trying to get into field goal range. The Bengals committed a late hit out of bounds which gave the Chiefs a free 15 yards. It put the Chiefs in prime field goal position and Harrison Butker kicked a 45 yard field goal to put the Kansas City Chiefs into the super bowl. 

This year’s super bowl has a chance to be one of the greatest super bowls ever. These 2 teams are the best of the best. They are both coming in with a 16-3 record. The Eagles have the #1 ranked Defense in the NFL this year, while the Chiefs have the #1 ranked offense in the NFL. The key factors in this game are going to determine who will win this game. The Eagles key factor is the running game. If the Eagles can run the ball with success, that will open up the passing game. Jalen Hurts and A.J Brown are a lethal duo and the Chiefs can not let him get 1 on 1. The biggest key factor for the Chiefs will be their defense. The Chiefs allow the 16th most points per game and their defense is not great at times. If they can contain Jalen Hurts and A.J Brown they will have a great chance of winning. 

For the first time in NFL history there will be 2 brothers playing against each other in the Super Bowl. Brothers Jason and Travis Kelce are both playing in the Super Bowl this year. Travis Kelce is a tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, and Jason Kelce is the starting center for the Philadelphia Eagles. They both went to Cleveland Heights high school in Cleveland. Then they both went to The University of Cincinnati. Jason was a 6th round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, as Travis was a 3rd round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. 

Super Bowl 57 will be a great and a fun game to watch. Many people have been asking who will win? The Eagles are slightly favored to win over the Chiefs. My prediction for Super Bowl 57 are the Philadelphia Eagles. I think the Eagles are overall the better team and will win the game over the Kansas City Chiefs.
