Super Bowl LVII Preview

Sam Dare, Staff Writer

This NFL season has been wild, but now it’s all down to one game: Super Bowl LVII. This year’s Super Bowl will be held in State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, home of the Arizona Cardinals. It will be between the champions of the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs, and the champions of the NFC, the Philadelphia Eagles. The game to crown this year’s world football champion will be held on Sunday, February 12th, at 6:30 PM on FOX.

Well, could you have asked for a better matchup? The two best teams in each conference, each sporting a stellar 16-3 record. Both teams have scored exactly 546 points this season, and both teams have numerous All-Pro players. It’s a battle between elite offense and elite defense on both sides. In terms of historic firsts, this game is the first Super Bowl ever to feature a duel between two Black quarterbacks and also the first to feature a pair of brothers going head-to-head. Travis Kelce, the star tight end of the Chiefs, will face off against his brother Jason Kelce, the stalwart offensive lineman for the Eagles. And the cherry on top? A Rihanna halftime performance. Perfection.

It’s the perfect Super Bowl matchup. The two unstoppable forces of the NFL clashing on the biggest stage, both healthy, rested, and off impressive wins. Both teams feature multiple young stars. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is the electricity of the NFL. He’ll run and throw all over you. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the prodigy of the NFL, the next legend. He’s proven again and again he has zero flaws in his game.

This game will be one of the most evenly-matched Super Bowls in multiple years, so it feels wrong even to try to pick a winner, but I’ll do my best. Based on their success this year, playoff dominance, high-flying offense, brick-wall defense, unstoppable rush attack, and overwhelming blitz, I have the Eagles narrowly defeating the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII, 34-33. But it’s so extremely difficult to decide. The Chiefs are just as good as the Eagles. Honestly, there isn’t a factual basis behind this decision. It’s more of a gut feeling.

But either way, this is sure to be a Super Bowl for the ages, so strap in and get ready, Falcons!
