Eagles Lose to Chiefs in a Heartbreaker of a Super Bowl

Raymundo Varela-Urizar
Fans gather in Philadelphia following the game.

The Philadelphia Eagles are not on the road to victory. The birds won their first Lombardi Trophy in 2018 after 85 years but lost this year to the Kansas City Chiefs 38-35.

The mighty birds faced off against the Chiefs in Arizona on Sunday, Feb. 12.

The Kansas City Chiefs have two rings but won 4 championships. Their last Super Bowl win was in February 2020 just right before the Pandemic shut the stadium’s doors to fans.

Despite the loss, Philadelphia fans still took to City Hall and some even climbed light poles while chanting “Let’s go eagles.”

Fans were sad, depressed and angry. City trains were mostly silent, with fans leaving bars early, angry twitter posts, and frustration that even led to violence between Eagles and chiefs in the streets.

Despite the defeat, there were still highlights of the game such as Jalen Hurts becoming the first quarterback in Super Bowl history to rush for 3 touchdowns. Hurts also added one through the air on a deep ball to A.J Brown.

One of the biggest storylines was that it was the first ever Super Bowl where two brothers faced each other. Philadelphia Eagles’s Jason Kelce took on his brother Travis Kelce with mutual support from their mother Donna Kelce.

As for another first, this was coach Nick Sirianni’s  first Super Bowl appearance  after having a 23-11 record  and with a 2-1 record in the postseason. Former Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid will officially become the fifth coach to face his former team in the Super Bowl.

Let’s not forget the performance by Rihanna, who sang and danced while pregnant, and how can we forget about the always popular Super Bowl commercials that bring us laughs.

Just days after the Super Bowl, Jonathan Gannon departed from the Philadelphia Eagles to become the head coach to the Arizona Cardinals. Another departure is Shane Steichen, the former offensive coordinator for the Philadelphia Eagles who has been named head coach for the Colts.

Despite losing two coaches, Sirianni says “We have great options in house.” Many people around the organization believe Sirianni is talking about QB’s coach Brian Johnson, who may fill the role as offensive coordinator replacing Steichen. Johnson has been close with Hurts for years. For the defensive side of the ball a coach that has been rumored to be a candidate is defensive coordinator Vance Joseph of the Arizona Cardinals.

Philadelphia Eagles fan Steven Giller of Doylestown says, “Obviously we all wish the birds would have finished it out and brought home our second ring, but after hearing everything Jalen Hurts and coach Nick had to say, we are hungrier than ever and we will be back. With Brady out of the picture and Rodgers in his final years, Hurts is easily going to be the best QB in the conference, and we have the TENTH FREAKING PICK IN THE DRAFT! Schedule will be hard but always in it with a QB and building through trenches.” Says Giller.

Eagles football will be back soon, and despite the loss Eagles fans still bleed Green and White!
