Super Bowl LVII is nearly here. Although the Atlanta Falcons aren’t present, as a football fan this is a must-watch conclusion to what is nearly seven months of the greatest sport on earth, in my opinion of course.
This year, the two teams left standing at the top of their respective conferences are the 14-3 Philadelphia Eagles and the 14-3 Kansas City Chiefs. Both teams entered the playoffs with the top overall seed and now have moved on the to the season finale on Sunday.
In all, it should be an interesting game. This is the first time two No. 1 seeds will face off in the Super Bowl since the Eagles defeated the New England Patriots nearly five years ago. There are a lot of interesting stories surrounding the game as well, such as Andy Reid facing his old team that he had a lot of success coaching from 1999-2012. Additionally, Sunday will mark the first time two brothers have played against each other in a Super Bowl — thanks to Jason Kelce of the Eagles and Travis Kelce of the Chiefs, and it’s the first time two Black quarterbacks — Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts — have faced off as Super Bowl starters.
