- NOTE: The point spread has since shifted to the Eagles -2.5
This year's Super Bowl will consist of the No. 1 seed from the NFC (Eagles) against the No. 1 seed from the AFC (Chiefs), and it should be an outstanding game that comes right down to the wire. My early analysis of this game is that both teams are pretty equal on the offense side of the ball, but the Eagles' defense is certainly better than what the Chiefs bring to the table. I also think the Eagles have a slight advantage when it comes to special teams. My early prediction is that the Eagles will outlast the Chiefs and win on a last-minute field goal.
Eagles 27 (-2.5)
