Philly will be a tough opponent. They don't have any weak spots on offense, and Hurts will do some damage running the ball. My hope is that previous Super Bowl experience for KC pays off, and that gives them the edge over Philly. May be wishful thinking, but we'll see. I'm sure the talking points will be focused on how much these offenses can move the ball and score, so naturally, it'll be a 17-13 final score.
I think the #1 talking point will be KC's passing offense versus Philly's pass defense.
Philly's pass defense was #1 in the NFL, allowing 179.8 yards per game this season. KC had the #1 passing offense in the NFL this season at 297.8 YPG.
The Eagles defense produced 70 sacks during the regular season -- 3rd most in NFL history. Plus 8 more sacks in the postseason.
Metrics also show that the Eagles defensive backfield allowed receivers to get open less than any team in the NFL.
The Eagles only allowed one 300-yard passing game all season (week 16 at Dallas).
The Chiefs offense really needs to get healthy.
