SB Rematch: The game is a rematch of last season’s Super Bowl, which saw Kansas City beat Philadelphia 38-35.
- MVP frontrunners Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts will go head-to-head.
KC Advantage: Mahomes could have a big day against the Eagles’ 30th-ranked secondary — a unit that has recently been burned by Dak Prescott (374 yards) and Sam Howell (397 yards).
- Though Mahomes is in a bit of a slump, averaging just 213 passing yards in his last two outings.
PHI Advantage: D’Andre Swift could torment a Chiefs’ run defense that has struggled as of late.
High Stakes: Both teams currently hold the No. 1 seed in their respective conferences — a loss would tie Philadelphia (8-1) with Detroit for the best record in the NFC, while a loss for Kansas City (7-2) would drop them to No. 2 in the AFC, behind Baltimore.
