Philadelphia Eagles and K.C. will both have offensive firepower.

Ever since Patrick Mahomes arrived in Kansas City, their offense has been scary good. Come on. He has Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman, Travis Kelce, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire to throw the ball to.

It’s a big if, but if the Eagles can score with regularity, DeVonta Smith, Jalen Reagor, Zach Ertz (if he’s still on the team), Dallas Goedert, and Miles Sanders should all be able to make some things happen.

It will be exciting to see Hurts and Mahomes battle it out. Both are mobile quarterbacks, and that adds an extra dynamic on offense for both sides. Both QBs can hurt the opposing defense in several ways.

The Eagles should let Miles Sanders run with abandon in this game as KC’s defense in the last two years has had its troubles with stopping the rush. Once the running game gets going, it will open things up for the passing game, which will help Hurts find his targets much easier.

Okay, we’ve talked about the offense. Let’s discuss the defensive side of the ball for both teams.
