As the 2023 NFL playoffs come to a close, the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs are officially headed to Arizona for the Super Bowl. The Eagles steamrolled through the injury stricken San Francisco 49ers, while the Chiefs walked off the Cincinnati Bengals with a game-winning field goal.

Viewers are less than a week out from the first snap of the Super Bowl, but we’re looking ahead for predictions of the highly anticipated matchup. Many students have strong opinions regarding their teams, while others are just enjoying the atmosphere, commercials and Super Bowl parties.

“The Eagles are gonna sweep the Chiefs 24 to 17,” Anthony Shearmur ’26, an avid Eagles fan, said.

Each team possesses many important pieces, which could easily sway the final result of the game. The Eagles young quarterback, Jalen Hurts, looks to lead Philadelphia to their second Super Bowl victory in five years. This matchup will definitely have sufficient scoring, so both defenses need to step up for their teams. There are many X-Factor talents on both sides of the ball for the Eagles, including Hurts, Miles Sanders, DeVonta Smith, and AJ Brown. On the defensive side there are two main stars, DT Fletcher Cox and CB Darius Slay. All these Eagles players need to lead their team and execute plays to the fullest of their abilities.

Another student agrees, “Eagles, for sure. The teams are pretty equal, which makes sense since they’re both in the Super Bowl. Both cities show a bunch of love but there’s something about those Eagles,” Cameron Cretaro ’24 said.

With how big every Super Bowl game is, there are always varying opinions on the outcome of the game. Many people root for the Eagles, while others wholeheartedly believe in the Kansas City Chiefs. A third student puts their money on the Chiefs.

“Chiefs going to win the Super Bowl and those Eagles going to fly back home,” Andrew Suh ’26 said.

Similar to the Eagles, the Chiefs have many standout players, such as MVP candidate quarterback Patrick Mahomes and star tight end Travis Kelce. Mahomes and Kelce have been a dynamic duo all year, leading their team into the postseason after finishing the year 14-3. The Chiefs look to secure their second Super Bowl title in five years.
