The Philadelphia Eagles are back in the National Football League’s Super Bowl for the first time since winning five years ago. The best NFL team in the main round won the NFC final on Sunday (local time) 31:7 against the San Francisco 49ers, who were severely restricted by two quarterback injuries, and will meet the Kansas City Chiefs on February 12. “It’s what you dream of as a kid,” Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said on US television. “We’re enjoying this now and then getting ready for the Super Bowl. One thing left.”

For the 49ers, quarterback surprise Brock Purdy injured his elbow in the first quarter and was replaced by Josh Johnson. The 36-year-old became the fourth playmaker used by the guests this season – and had to leave the field in the third quarter with suspected concussion. In the meantime it looked as if Christian McCaffrey had to take over at the position of 7:21. San Francisco, however, sent Purdy back into the game, but the 23-year-old was obviously restricted and did not make any more long pass attempts.

The Eagles had the game under control and were hardly challenged by the battered 49ers. Quarterback Jalen Hurts passed for 121 yards and a clean pass performance to control the action, most of it running offensively. On the fourth touchdown, Hurts carried the ball himself into the end zone.

NFL Super Bowl LVII: The Philadelphia Eagles meet the Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs are now waiting for the Eagles in the final. Led by their injured playmaker Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs have reached the National Football League’s Super Bowl for the third time in four years. At 23:20 against the Cincinnati Bengals, a field goal eight seconds before the end on Sunday evening (local time) brought the decision. The situation was made possible by Mahomes, who had an ankle injury and who, for the only time in the game, carried the ball forward himself as quickly as he could. With two touchdown passes and throws for a total of 326 yards, Mahomes made an outstanding game under the circumstances.

“There are moments in a game when you just have to risk everything,” Mahomes said at the handover of the trophy for the AFC win on the scene before the field goal. The Chiefs playmaker didn’t want to focus on the Super Bowl just yet. “It’s going to be a great challenge, but first I’m going to celebrate this. I don’t think we have cigars, but we’ll be prepared for the Super Bowl,” Mahomes said.

The Chiefs won the Super Bowl for the second time in their history in February 2020, losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021. Last season, the Chiefs lost to quarterback Joe Burrow’s Bengals in the AFC Finals.
