It’s a Super Bowl rematch on Monday when the Philadelphia Eagles head to Kansas City. A reunion just eight months after the Chiefs’ victory in Super Bowl 57.
Amazon Prime Video NFL analyst Andrew Whitworth spent some time with Eagles center Jason Kelce recently. He explained the matchup between the two teams, and how Kelce facing his brother — Travis — might have more at stake than they’re leading on.
“It’s like, you know, when my wife’s mad at me and I ask her and she says, ‘Nothing’s wrong.’ When you ask the Eagles, they say, ‘It’s not that kind of game. We’re not even thinking about any of that,’ it means something’s wrong,” Whitworth told Fox Digital. “It means they are ready for this one. You know this game means a lot to them. They’re fired up. You can feel that.”
It’ll be a game that will have some extra emphasis for the Eagles, according to Whitworth.
“I just feel like they got a lot on this one,” Whitworth told Fox Digital. “Does it mean these two meet again in the Super Bowl and it will be different? I don’t know. I think in this game, it just feels like it probably means a ton to the Eagles.”
Last season, the Chiefs defeated the Eagles, 38-35 in the Super Bowl. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes put on a masterful display in the pocket and earned an MVP honor once all was said and done in Glendale, Ariz.
Whitworth, who has a Super Bowl ring of his own, knows the Eagles are coming for more.
“You just got a feeling this Eagles team has been circling this one for a long time since it came out,” Whitworth said.”I think that it will be an epic game. I can’t wait to watch it.”
