My Opinion:

I have a feeling that the Chiefs (KC) will win the Super Bowl this year. Patrick Mahomes is consistently and undoubtedly one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now and has experience under pressure, as well as a reliable offense to depend on. 

Despite the statistics showing that the Eagles have a better chance, I feel that the Chiefs will end up winning, because of their head coach, Andy Reid. He has been strategic with his decisions for the franchise and their play style. 

Jags’ Opinions:

Hailey Walker ‘24:

“I think the Chiefs are going to win,” Walker said. “They’re both great teams, but I feel that the Chiefs have better players than the Eagles.”

Hans Kettwig ‘25:

“I personally think that the Chiefs will win, because Patrick Mahomes will have some first-string receivers to throw to,” Kettwig said. “Even though they [Eagles] have some very strong players, I think the Chiefs will know how to stop them.”

Aiden Waterbury ‘26:

“I think the Eagles will win because the 49ers were one of the best teams in the league, and the Eagles managed to beat them,” Waterbury said. 

Brooke Hein ‘24:

“I think the Eagles will win, because of the remarkable season they’ve had,” Hein said.
