The Kansas City Chiefs are your 2023 Super Bowl Champions after one of the best Super Bowl matchups I've ever watched (up until the final two minutes).
The game was back and forth from the very start, with both teams scoring touchdowns on their opening drives. Each team stalled on their next drives, but the scoring picked back up immediately at the start of the second quarter when Jalen Hurts launched a 45-yard bomb to A.J. Brown to regain the lead for the Eagles. Philadelphia dominated the second quarter with the exception of a Jalen Hurts fumble that led to a scoop and score for the Chiefs to keep them in the game.
It appeared as though Kansas City was on the precipice of a collapse as the first half came to a close when Patrick Mahomes came up limping after he was tackled around his previously injured ankle on a scramble attempt to set up a fourth down with lots of time for the Eagles to score again. But after holding Philadelphia to a field goal on the first half's last play, the tide began to turn in the third quarter.
It's just about time for the game we've all been waiting for. On Sunday at 6:30 pm EST, Super 57 will kick off at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
On one side, we have a team who has been here before. They've been the league favorite since their generational quarterback rose to stardom, and while the organization has swapped guys in and out at wide receiver and running back over the years, the head coach, quarterback, and top tight end have remained constant dominant forces. They suffered an unexpected early exit last postseason and have flown a bit under the radar as praise poured in for other teams in the conference. But in the end, the Kansas City Chiefs have kept finding ways to win, securing their third Super Bowl appearance in the last four seasons.
