The Super Bowl is exactly three months away — Feb. 12, 2023 in Glendale, AZ.
So this tab might seem a bit premature.
But here goes, according to Philly guy Sal Paolantonio of ESPN:
Philadelphia faces the ghost of Christmas past in Andy Reid, now Kansas City’s coach.
The Eagles and Chiefs are among the top teams in each of their conferences and have matching 40.1% chances to reach the Super Bowl via ESPN’s FPI (tied for the highest).
How do they get there?
I see Ravens QB Lamar Jackson tormenting Steve Spagnuolo’s defense until Mahomes Magic comes to the rescue in the AFC Championship Game, while the Eagles slip past the Niners in overtime in the NFC title matchup.
That sets the stage for the Super Bowl, where Reid’s Chiefs meets the Eagles — the team he went 130-93-1 with over 14 seasons as their coach.
