Who is playing in Super Bowl 57?
Super Bowl 57 will be one packed with storylines as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Philadelphia Eagles. Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is facing off against his former team and it will also be a battle of brothers. Tight end Travis Kelce has broken records with quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs while center Jason Kelce has bolstered the offensive line for the Eagles and quarterback Jalen Hurts.
The Eagles are headed to their first Super Bowl since the 2017 season when they beat the New England Patriots 41-33. This year, Hurts led the team to an 8-0 start and found success with receivers DeVonta Smith and A.J. Brown. He has rushed for 15 touchdowns, 13 of which came in the regular season. The second-ranked defense is bolstered by safety C.J. Gardner-Johnson and linebackers T.J. Edwards and Haason Reddick, who was second in the league with 16 sacks in the regular season.
The Chiefs appear in their third Super Bowl in four years. Mahomes has led a high-powered offense, assisted by Kelce. The quarterback led the league with 5,250 passing yards and 41 touchdowns. Mahomes sprained his ankle in the divisional round, but bounced back to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC championship. The Chiefs went 14-3 in the regular season and won their seventh straight AFC West title. This is head coach Andy Reid's fourth time serving as head coach in the Super Bowl. He lost Super Bowl 39 when he was with the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2004 season, but got his first win when the Chiefs captured Super Bowl 54 following the 2019 season. His Chiefs lost Super Bowl 55 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
