Why the Eagles can cover
Kansas City did not defend the pass well during the regular season, ranking 18th with an average of 220.9 yards allowed. The team has given up even more yards through the air in the 2023 NFL playoffs (221.5) and now has the daunting task of keeping one of the top receiving duos in the league under wraps. Philadelphia formed the pair quickly, selecting DeVonta Smith with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and acquiring A.J. Brown from Tennessee last April.
Smith followed a solid rookie season with a strong 2022, making 95 catches for 1,196 yards and seven touchdowns. This postseason, the 24-year-old has hauled in eight passes for 97 yards and a score. Brown made a big impact in his first year with the Eagles, setting the franchise single-season record and ranking fourth in the league with a career-high 1,496 yards while tying for third with 11 TD receptions. Smith and Brown are the first teammates in team history to register 1,000 receiving yards in the same season. See which team to pick here.
Why the Chiefs can cover
Kansas City's aerial attack was the best in the NFL during the regular season, averaging 297.8 passing yards per game. Mahomes led the NFL with 41 passing touchdowns this season and the Chiefs averaged 413.6 yards per game on offense during the regular season, the most in the NFL. The two-time NFL MVP racked up 326 passing yards and two touchdowns in Kansas City's victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game.
Tight end Travis Kelce has been Mahomes' favorite target all season long. He's been exceptional in the 2023 NFL playoffs, recording 21 receptions for 176 yards and three touchdowns. Kelce has averaged over 10.5 yards per reception in 11 of his last 14 outings and is expected to remain the main focal point in Kansas City's aerial attack on Sunday. See which team to pick here.
