NFL Super Bowl LVII Prediction

The Super Bowl features the best team in each conference. Kansas City and Philadelphia mirror each other in their running games, touchdowns scored and yards per game. Both offensive and defensive lines play better after offseason upgrades and the secondaries know when to shut receivers down. It’s time to reveal which team has the best chance of winning the Vince Lombardi trophy and why.

#1 Kansas City Chiefs v. #1 Philadelphia Eagles

Two number one seeds versatile in running the ball, executing deep-ball plays and having a lot of speedy playmakers face off in what could be the game of the year. Andy Reid and Nick Sirianni have been coaches on both teams and know what they want in star players. Both quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes II and Jalen Hurts were MVP candidates this year and have better offensive lines after debacles the previous postseason appearances. Just as last round proved, this is where depth decides the champion.

Both Andy Reid and Nick Sirianni are familiar with each others’ schemes, wants in players and how each others minds work. This will be a close game regardless of who wins. Whoever adjusts most should come out victorious.

The winner of this game and the champion of the 2022-23 season will be determined by the offensive and defensive lines by both teams. The offensive line duo of Isaac Seumalo and Lane Johnson will be tasked with stopping both George Karlaftis and Khalen Saunders. Saunders is exceptional in stopping the run and has improved on rushing the passer while Lane Johnson’s had an extra two weeks to nurse his ailing groin injury. If Johnson aggravates the injury further it could alter Chiefs defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo’s blitz scheming and Jalen Hurts’ timing of throws.

On the other end the Eagles’ defensive interior of Fletcher Cox, Linval Joseph, Jordan Davis and Javon Hargrave have the numbers advantage against Joe Thuney, Creed Humphrey and Trey Smith. Kansas City’s interior offensive line will have their hands full with a deep defensive front that gets plenty of rest and will be refreshed even late in the second half.

The Eagles have an elite secondary, but the anchor is Fletcher Cox (91) on the defensive line. Left guard Joe Thuney will have a rough day trying to stop Cox from getting to Mahomes and the runningbacks.

Last but not least, coaching will determine who comes out on top. Unfortunately for Kansas City, Andy Reid is known for letting leads slip away despite fantastic starts for most of the Super Bowl teams he’s coached. As mentioned in the NFC Championship prediction, Nick Sirianni finds an opponents weakness and doesn’t let up. The mindset with the Eagles is different due to the depth and an exceptionally talented 53 man roster. It wouldn’t be surprising to see one of the best second half performances and an Eagles comeback win due to how Philadelphia can adjust and attack first on every side of the ball and overwhelm the Chiefs.
