Chiefs and Eagles Go to the Superbowl

Wyatt Young, Reporter

It’s that time of year, football playoffs for the NFL have finished and the Superbowl is just around the corner. Scheduled for Feb. 12, the Eagles are set to play the Chiefs in Superbowl 57 at State Farm Stadium in Arizona.

The Kansas City Chiefs had a hard fight in the AFC conference championship against the Cincinnati Bengals at Arrowhead stadium with a score of 20-23. The Bengals were making bad plays in general with Joe Burrow throwing two interceptions and only accumulating 238 yards. The defense had game stake penalties that could’ve been avoided.

At the end of the game 20-20 and nearing overtime, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes was trying to get in field goal range to end the game. After a QB rush, Mahomes gets pushed by Bengals defensive end Joseph Ossai which got the Chiefs 15 more yards and in field goal range, at which the Chiefs made the field goal.

“Why the f*** you touch the Quarterback,” Bengals Linebacker Germain Pratt said to Joseph Ossai after the game.

Leading up to the game most Bengals fans were calling the Arrowhead stadium “Burrowhead” as it refers to the Bengals “Owning” the chiefs. After the Chiefs win the players had something to say about the trash talking.

“Burrowhead my a**” Tight end Travis Kelce said after the game.

The Philadelphia Eagles had a blowout victory against the San Francisco 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field with a score of 7-31. Brock Purdy had a heartbreaking injury in the first quarter and was benched the rest of the game. Soon following, the 49er’s defense began to collapse allowing over 350+ yards.

Purdy only had recorded 38 yards before his injury. In Purdy’s replacement is Josh Johnson who only had 74 yards. Jalen Hurts had only 121 yards due to the early lead and the eagles wanting to run the clock down as much as possible.

If you would like to go to the Superbowl this year than good luck, tickets this year are up to $4,900 for the “cheapest” seats and up to $35,000 for good seats or you can watch the Superbowl on FOX.
