Conference championship overreaction: Mahomes will end up the GOAT

Hurts and the Eagles cruise to Philly's third title chance this year, Mahomes and the Chiefs limp in, and the storylines abound right before the big game.

Whew! It’s gone in a flash. Twenty weeks of NFL football, and we’re down to two teams. Eagles vs. Chiefs, Mahomes vs. Hurts, Andy Reid vs. Andy Reid’s former team. I cannot wait for the Super Bowl. 

Mahomes is going down as the GOAT

Leading up to the AFC Championship, the talk was about if the Kansas City Chiefs could finally win over Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Memes circulated the internet talking about how Arrowhead Stadium was now Burrowheaad Stadium. But the Chiefs finished it, edging out the Bengals 23-20. 

Mahomes was playing on one ankle, Travis Kelce was banged up, and multiple starters on defense were out–I’m still not sure how they got it done. As long as you have Mahomes, you have a shot, as this is already his third Super Bowl appearance in only his fifth year as a starter. Likely, Mahomes goes down as the GOAT. 

He’s only 27 years old, and now it’s a question of how many Super Bowls he’ll end his career with. Ironically, just as the New England Patriots’ 20-year run ended, the Chiefs look to be on course to do the same. As long as they have Mahomes, the Chiefs can’t ever be counted out. Get ready for them to be competitive for at least the next decade or so. 

Only the Eagles can save the sports season in Philly

Hey, maybe the third time’s the charm. 

The Philadelphia Union and Philadelphia Phillies both made their respective championship rounds but were beaten out by league juggernauts. Now, the Eagles have their chance to deliver a title to Philly. Can they be the heroes of the city?

Philly has set historic rushing records on their way to the Super Bowl. They’re the team with the most rushing touchdowns since the Frankfurt Yellow Jackets in 1937, who was probably your abuelo’s team. Once Jalen Hurts returned from injury, the team returned to its usual self. Call them lucky if you want, but they thrashed the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers on their way to a well-deserved NFC title. 

They were the number-one seed for a reason and have proved that throughout the season. Now they’ll be tasked with saving Philly from having three-straight runner-up finishes. Can the Eagles fly high? Or will they crash and burn?
