This year, that kind of trip was not possible. He considered flying private to attend the two conference championship games. It wouldn’t work, unless most of each was lost. So he chose Philadelphia and then watched the Chiefs game from a local bar after the Eagles’ win. But he will not have to choose again on February 12. That is his problem. And he’s good, mostly.

He’ll be wearing the jersey someone made for him a few years ago, the one the Eagles and Chiefs split. She chooses to see it this way: her children, in their respective cores, are competitors. They both took losses on him, Travis more often because the older brother could overpower him. Now, as the brothers make NFL history, she can’t think of a more appropriate way for that spirit to play out on the biggest stage imaginable. Her heart will break for whoever she loses. But there is also a flip side to that. One of them is going to win.

7. The Chiefs’ rookie class overall was terrific.

Watson and Williams were just two of several rookies who made a significant impact on Sunday. In fact, the following players made significant contributions: running back Isiah Pacheco (85 scrimmage yards), cornerback Trent McDuffie (6 tackles, 1 tackle for loss, and 2 pass breakups), defensive end George Karlaftis (one sack ), safety Bryan Cook (4 tackles, 1 pass breakup), and wide receiver Skyy Moore (a 29-yard punt return that set up the game-winning drive).

The Chiefs relied heavily on their rookie class in the biggest game of the season on Sunday night, and the guys collectively pulled through.

Travis Kelce throws a touchdown

The Chiefs’ star tight end was certainly on one after the AFC Championship Game win over the Cincinnati Bengals. “Burrowhead, my ass!” Our prediction is that Kelce will throw a touchdown to Kadarius Toney in the red zone, a bit “special” against Philly, if you will. Kelce is a versatile red zone threat who can find the holes in zone coverage or hit a shovel pass right up the middle to score. He expected something creative from Coach Reid in the red zone in Super Bowl LVII.

Kelce has attempted just one pass in his playoff career. That attempt was for a 2-yard touchdown against the pittsburgh steelers.

NFL trends that will continue into the 2023 season: Invest heavily in the offensive line, be aggressive and more | CBS Sports

Last year, I highlighted the league’s growing propensity to go for him on fourth down, pass on first down and prioritize YAC. Those trends are going nowhere. To mention them briefly here, teams are still noticeably more aggressive on fourth down than they were five or 10 years ago. That’s good.

The Bengals and Chiefs finished third and fourth, respectively, in first-down pass rate during the regular season. Eight of the 14 playoff teams were in the top 10 in first-down pass rate and first-down pass rate in one-touchdown scenarios. If the NFL is a copycat league, other teams need to copy what the best teams are doing, and one of those things is passing it more often than they run it on first down, even if the game is close.

And YAC is here to stay for a while. The Chiefs finished with the most total YAC during the regular season. He 49ers he had the best YAC average per reception. The Chiefs were second in that category, while the Eagles were fifth and the Bengals were 11th despite Ja’Marr Chase missing four games.

No, it’s not Lamar Jackson. It’s, surprise, Tyler Huntley.

A fourth backup, Huntley, was added to replace Josh Allen (elbow injury), making him one of the most unlikely entrants to the Pro Bowl.

The Ravens’ Tyler Huntley has thrown the fewest touchdown passes for any quarterback who went on to be selected to a Pro Bowl that same season.

Huntley threw two touchdown passes this season, the fewest by far for a Pro Bowl quarterback since the 1970 merger, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. The previous low was six touchdown passes by Mike Boryla of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1975. Filling in for the injured Jackson for six games, Huntley passed for a total of 658 yards, which ranked 48th in the NFL this season.

How the Chiefs won the AFC Championship in March, when no one was lookinggram

but against him buccaneers in that Super Bowl, and during the 2021 season, the team hit a wall. While the roster still had elite players at the top, the bottom of the roster was too weak for the players at the top to counter.

None of this is a criticism of the front office. The team’s strategy had led to a Super Bowl victory. But unfortunately, a team can’t live that way forever.

That is why the Chiefs traded Hill. He had nothing to do with his talent, not even with what it would have cost to retain him. He was phenomenal in 2022, reinvigorating the miami dolphins‘ offense with his all-time gravity and speed. your sheer presence it can make an offense efficient simply because of the way opposing teams have to adapt to it. The Chiefs could have justified paying Hill what he was worth.

But the team chose a different path. The gamble was made that Andy Reid and Mahomes could continue to make the offense successful without Hill, allowing the team to use the assets obtained through the trade (Hill’s salary and the draft picks the team received in the trade) to build the list along the margins. He would emphasize flexibility, youth and depth.
