The Eagles arrived in Arizona as 1.5-point favorites, according to Caesars Sportsbook. Philadelphia was led this season by third-year quarterback Jalen Hurts and a defense that recorded a whopping 70 sacks during the regular season. The Eagles won the NFC after cruising past the Giants and 49ers in the playoffs by a combined score of 69-14.
It was a much different road to the Super Bowl for the Chiefs, who won two hard fought games in order to make it back to the big game for a third time in four years. The Chiefs are one week removed from dethroning the Bengals in the AFC title game behind a gritty effort by Mahomes, who is dealing with a high ankle sprain that was sustained in the divisional round.
Like Mahomes, Hurts is also playing through pain after sustaining an injury to his throwing shoulder late in the regular season. Both quarterbacks injuries will surely be something to monitor as the week continues.
