The Super Bowl is just one week away and the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles have arrived in Phoenix to get ready for the big game. As the teams touched down in Arizona, the excitement was palpable in the air. The Chiefs and Eagles have both had remarkable post-season runs, and the anticipation for Super Bowl LVII is at an all-time high.
The Chiefs advanced to their third Super Bowl in four seasons when Harrison Butker made a 45-yard field goal with 3 seconds left to push Kansas City past the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in the AFC championship game last weekend. The Eagles routed the San Francisco 49ers 31-7 in the NFC title game. They’ve looked dominant in the playoffs so far, also beating the New York Giants 38-7 in the divisional round.

The teams will both take part in the “Super Bowl LVII Opening Night” on Monday in downtown Phoenix, where all the players and coaches from both teams are available for the annual media extravaganza. Then it’s down to business. The Chiefs will practice throughout the week at Arizona State’s football facilities while the Eagles will do their preparation at the Arizona Cardinals’ practice facility.

Oddsmakers are expecting a good game, though they disagree with former Chiefs star Christian Okoye, who was on hand to pass out hats to Kansas City’s players as they got off the plane and declared that his team will win the Super Bowl. Philadelphia opened as a 1 1/2-point favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

This Super Bowl matchup is full of intriguing storylines. Kansas City coach Andy Reid goes against his former team — which he led to Super Bowl 39 — in a game that’s also the first matchup of Black starting quarterbacks in the Super Bowl with Mahomes and Hurts. There’s also a brother-against-brother showdown between Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Philadelphia center Jason Kelce.

The anticipation is building for Super Bowl LVII, and one thing is for sure: it’s sure to be an exciting game. Who will come out on top? We’ll have to wait and see.
