Finally, the Super Bowl!

Finally, the Super Bowl!


PHOENIX | After numerous analyses, press conferences, speeches and questions, it's time for Super Bowl 57!   

The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs face off Sunday night (6:30 p.m.) at State Farm Stadium in Glendale to determine which team will be crowned champion at the end of a long season. 

It is high time that the debate was settled on the field after long days of talking about the event. If you can't wait any longer, neither can the two teams.

Even if the Chiefs and Eagles have lent themselves generously to the media contest all week in Phoenix, we feel that it is time to do battle. Just think of Chiefs head coach Andy Reid, who mentioned in his last press briefing on Thursday that he had to answer about 50 questions this week about his “dream cheeseburger.” Yes, it's high time to jump on the pitch to stop the madness! 

Good stories

There will be a lot to get your teeth into in crispy stories. Speaking of Reid, he becomes only the fifth head coach to face his former team in the Super Bowl, he who led the Eagles from 1999 to 2012. Know that no driver has defeated his former team in the ultimate game since Jon Gruden with the Buccaneers, facing his former Raiders, 20 years ago. 

There is of course the fact that for the first time, two brothers face each other. Eagles center Jason Kelce and his brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, have been talking a lot about their family history in the last few days. the first time in Super Bowl history, two black pivots face off, in Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes. 

Strengths at play

The Chiefs have presented the best offense in the NFL this season with an average of 29.2 points scored per game. The Eagles are close behind them, in third place, with an average of 28.1 points scored per game. 

Defensively, however, the Eagles have the upper hand so far, they who sit in second place in yards allowed, while the Chiefs are 11th. 

Chiefs handyman Patrick Mahomes was voted most valuable player of the season on Thursday night. Is this a bad omen for the Chiefs? The last nine recipients of this honor who took part in the Super Bowl in the same year lost. He will try to break this trend. 

To be continued and good game!
