Every Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs record and statistic that will have you thinking we’re all just living in a simulation
The Philadelphia Eagles finished the regular season at 14-3 and secured the No. 1 seed in the NFC, which came with a first round bye in the playoffs.
The Chiefs also finished the regular season 14-3 and secured the No. 1 seed in the AFC, as well as a first round bye in the playoffs. Quick math will show you that both teams are heading to the Super Bowl with 16-3 records (including playoffs) as well as the same exact amount of points scored with 546.
The records and seeding are pretty standard. There’s no doubt that the Eagles and Chiefs were the two best teams in the NFL throughout the season. When you add in the total points scored at 546, that’s when the simulation starts to grab hold of you and the popular “NFL Script” rumors seem more likely.
As we journey even deeper into the rabbit hole when looking at the accolades collected by each player on their respective teams.
The Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles both have six All Pros, including a Kelce brother and their quarterbacks in Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts.
Then, of course, we have the “trend” that we posted last week on social media, which caused quite a bit of a stir. In 2017, the Philadelphia Eagles, Houston Astros, and Golden State Warriors all won championships in their respective sports.
This year, the Houston Astros and Golden State Warriors have both won championships, leaving just the Philadelphia Eagles to complete the simulation by defeating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.
If you’re still not convinced, then we should probably check out an actual simulation of the Super Bowl. If Sunday’s matchup ends up anywhere close to the final score that Madden ’23 predicted during their Super Bowl simulation, then just pack it in. The iconic video game predicted that the Eagles would beat the Chiefs 31-17 on Sunday, which is definitely something I can get behind.
