The Philadelphia Eagles are going to play in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs. The Eagles franchise was established in 1933 and was named the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Steagles.

Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles have successfully secured a place in the Super Bowl on February 12. The Eagles were the number one seed in the NFC East Conference this year. Making their 4th Super Bowl appearance, the eagles will be traveling to the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. 

The Eagles have hired Nick Sirianni as the new head coach in 2021 and drafted quarterback Jalen Hurts. The franchise has been to the postseason four out of the past five years.

The Philadelphia Eagles blew past the New York Giants winning 38-7 in the Divisional round. In the NFC championship game, the San Francisco 49ers fell short losing 31-7 against the Eagles.

“We get to do it because we did it better than anyone in the NFC this year,” said Eagles’ head coach Nick Sirianni after their win against the San Francisco 49ers. The Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs will play in Arizona for the LVII Super Bowl. The halftime show will be presented by Rhianna and sponsored by Apple Music.

“I have been an Eagles fan since I was little because of my dad and seeing them advance to the super bowl this year puts a smile on my face,” senior Rylee Spotts said. “The Eagles have worked hard this entire season even when Jalen Hurts was hurt they still pushed through. I am very excited to watch the super bowl because we finally made it. We just need this one last victory to end the season with a well deserved ring.”

The last time the Eagles had their time to shine was in the 2018 Super Bowl. The Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Minnesota Vikings 38-7 for the NFC Championship. They played the former Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots. The Eagles’ former coach, Doug Pederson and his team won against the 5 time Super Bowl champions defeating them 41-33. The Eagles won their first franchise Super Bowl Championship in history.

“My family are huge Eagles fans so I have been watching them play since I was a kid,” senior Brandon Woollam said. “I love watching them throughout the years and now to see them play in the Super Bowl is amazing. Hopefully, they pull through and get their second championship.”

Super Bowl LVII kicks off at 6:30pm on Sunday February 12. Fox will be televising the matchup. Other streaming platforms like the Fox Sports website, the Fox Sports app, and the NFL+ app will also be showing the game.
