NFL: Super Bowl rematch, Philadelphia Eagles vs Kansas City Chiefs preview

NFL: Super Bowl rematch, Philadelphia Eagles vs Kansas City Chiefs preview

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl last season 38-35. They will have a rematch on Monday Night Football. A rematch at this time seems fitting and feels like something you would see in a movie because each team is sitting at the top of their conference with the best record. The Chiefs are 7-2. The Eagles are 8-1. Although a week 11 victory can not be compared to a Super Bowl title, the Eagles have a chance to get some revenge.

This might be the best game of the regular season, and both teams still have a lot to play for regardless of their records. If these two meet again in the Super Bowl, a win here could give one team a bit of an edge, especially if the Chiefs beat the Eagles again. Not only that, but this game could have a big impact on the MVP race if it comes down to Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes.

Game details

The Kansas City Chiefs will play against the Philadelphia Eagles on November 20, Monday Night Football. The game will be in Kansas City. The Chiefs are slight betting favourites heading into this one on NFL betting sites. They have -143 odds to win the game on BetVictor. The Eagles are the underdogs. They have +120 odds. This is a game featuring the top team in the AFC and the top team in the NFC. Both teams were on a bye last week. The spread is 2.5 points. The Chiefs are -2.5, the Eagles +2.5. The total for the game is over/under 45.5 points. They combined for 73 points in the Super Bowl.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs are the class of the NFL right now. After losing their season opener to the Detroit Lions, they won seven of their next eight games. Their only loss during that stretch was to the Denver Broncos in week eight, a team that seems to have turned their season around after defeating the Buffalo Bills in week 10. The Chiefs have not been perfect, but they continue to win games, and that is what matters. With Patrick Mahomes at quarterback, a bet on the Chiefs usually pays off. 

But this year the defense has put up shocking numbers, considering the defense has often not been great during the Mahomes era. They are currently allowing the second fewest points in the NFL at 15.9. If the Chiefs can keep the Eagles offense under 20 points, they will have a great shot in this game. A huge concern is whether or not they will be as motivated and locked in for this game as the Eagles. One would anticipate that this is just another regular season game for the Chiefs, but the Eagles should be extremely motivated to win this game.

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 8-1. They are coming off a close victory over the Dallas Cowboys in week 10. The Eagles went head-to-head with the number four scoring offense in the league, and looked like the better unit. The Eagles are currently averaging the fifth most points per game this season. The Chiefs are allowing the second fewest points so far this season, but Jalen Hurts, AJ Brown, and the Eagles offense have enough firepower to beat anyone on any given week, and they should be extra motivated this week.

The Eagles could find themselves playing in the Super Bowl against the Chiefs for the second straight year. A win here could do a lot for their confidence. Although it is a regular season game, do the Eagles want to head into a Super Bowl rematch with another loss to the Chiefs? And if the Eagles win this game, Hurts will strengthen his MVP case. Again, it is not much compared to a Super Bowl, but these teams look almost evenly matched. If these teams play 10 games, each team might realistically win five games. This game could come down to who wants it more.
