Now, part of Pacheco's role in the passing game might have been due to JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee), Mecole Hardman (pelvis) and Kadarius Toney (ankle) all banged up, but clearly, the Chiefs felt more comfortable with Pacheco than Jerick McKinnon, who only had four carries for 1 yard and two catches for 17 yards on four targets. He could be a potential breakout candidate in 2023, especially if he has a big role in the passing game for the Chiefs.
Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval probably didn't think he would get called out by Travis Kelce on national TV following the AFC Championship Game. That's what happened, however, after Kelce decided to react to Pureval's social media video that, among other things, referred to the Chiefs' home stadium as "Burrowhead."
I'm happy for the city. Reid is still the winningest coach in the Eagles' franchise history.
Last week's video of Pureval, declaring that officials recently asked Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow to "take a paternity test to confirm whether or not he's his father" of Mahomes went viral. Despite being the road team during Sunday's AFC Championship Game, Cincinnati had to be feeling confident, due in large part to Burrow's career 3-0 record against Mahomes.
There will be a lot of virtual ink spilled about the many storylines of the Super Bowl LVII matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. Perhaps one of the best storylines in terms of pure storytelling value, though, is the relationship between Philadelphia Eagles star center Jason Kelce and Kansas City Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce.
“It’s going to be a great challenge for us. Mahomes, who hurt his ankle against Jacksonville in the divisional round, threw for 326 yards and two touchdowns, even though he was missing three of his wide receivers to injuries by the end.
Harrison Butker made a 45-yard field goal with 3 seconds left — after Cincinnati's Joseph Ossai was flagged for a 15-yard penalty for shoving Mahomes after he was out of bounds — and the Chiefs beat the Bengals 23-20 in the AFC championship game to make it back to the Super Bowl. Kansas City will face the Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl on Feb. 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
It’s possible the final four of GQ’s Most Stylish NFL Player tournament could be monopolized by Alabama alumni. When the tournament launched on Monday, a former Alabama player was in each quadrant of the bracket, making it possible for the semifinals to be clogged by a quartet of Crimson Tide notables – Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry, New York Giants safety Xavier McKinney, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith and Denver Broncos cornerback Patrick Surtain II.
Former South Dakota State tight end and South Dakota native Dallas Goedert is Super Bowl-bound. Goedert, who played his high school ball in Britton, a northeastern South Dakota city in Marshall County, was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
After a grueling postseason, Nick Sirianni’s Philadelphia Eagles and Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs have advanced to Super Bowl 2023 at Glendale, Arizona’s State Farm Stadium on Sunday, Feb. 12. Before Rihanna belts out “Umbrella” at the 50-yard line during this year’s halftime Show, many of the biggest names in music will have already performed at Phoenix’s Footprint Center in the week leading up to the game as part of the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest.
