Featured Game | Philadelphia Eagles vs. Kansas City Chiefs
Why the Eagles can cover
The Eagles have always proven to be the most complete team in the NFL, as they are the only club to rank in the top five on offense and defense. They lost just one game with quarterback Jalen Hurts under center and won both of their playoff games by a combined score of 49-14.
Hurts was a favorite for MVP before missing two season-ending games and part of another due to a shoulder injury from which he is still recovering. The Alabama product has become perhaps the most dangerous dual-threat quarterback in the game, as he allows the offense to boast virtually limitless versatility. Hurts finished the regular season with 3,701 passing yards and 22 touchdowns while completing 66.5% of his passes. He also scored 760 rushing yards on 165 carries with 13 scores.

Why the Chiefs can cover
Three years ago, when the Chiefs rallied to beat the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl 54, many football watchers believed it was the start of a dynastic run for the club that would include multiple championships. They reached the Super Bowl the following year, but were routed 31-9 by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and watched last year’s game from home.
Even so, Kansas City will be making its third Super Bowl appearance in the past four seasons and remain highly motivated to prove they are still the dominant team in the NFL this generation. Mahomes and company used the perceived slights as motivation in their AFC Championship Game rematch with the Bengals, as the build-up saw Cincinnati receive the bulk of media attention. Mahomes, playing off a sprained ankle sustained in the divisional round against Jacksonville, led the Chiefs to a 23-20 win. See which team to choose here.
