The Chiefs haven’t shown any consistent productivity in short-yardage situations. Meanwhile, the Eagles’ rushing defense is improving.

Well, in order for the Eagles to lay claim as being the owners of the NFL’s best rushing attack, other teams have to be worse. See the Kansas City Chiefs for an example.

How do we say this politely? While Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon can’t be taken lightly. If K.C.’s passing attack is deemed ineffective, that would be a great thing! It won’t guarantee victory. The Chiefs have shown that they can win without a consistent running game, but if the Birds could seize the advantage here, that would most certainly make the night an easier one.

Here’s some of what Matt Conner had to say.

M.C. – The Chiefs are actually better at third-and-long than they are on third-and-one situations. It’s actually uncanny.

Sometimes Andy Reid’s playcalling calls for something cute in the face of something obvious. At other times, the run game just can’t get it done.

This is a team with a serious phobia of watching Mahomes run a QB sneak, and the whole package equals the single worst team in the league at short-yardage situations.

We hope you’re right Matt! We hope you’re right! Confidence is growing. Let’s hope every Chiefs flaw shows up on Sunday.

Patrick Mahomes gives them an advantage. So does Travis Kelce and Andy Reid, but the Eagles, position by position, are better at just about every position. We won’t have to wait much longer to see how things shake out.

Hot. X-factors that will help decide the Super Bowl. light
