Super Bowl LVII might not feature the Seattle Seahawks but let’s hope the next 10 Super Bowls do. Either way, this year’s Super Bowl should be a good one and features a ton of good storylines entering the games. Or, you know, just the way the NFL likes it.

Both teams have a Kelce as Eagles center Jason Kelce’s team will play Jason’s brother’s (tight end Travis) Chiefs team. Both players are great at their respective positions but if the two brothers end up playing literally head-to-head then something has seriously gone wrong as both play on offense. May the best brother’s team win.

Another storyline sees Chiefs coach Andy Reid go against his former team, the Eagles. Plus, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni was basically fired by Reid when Reid became the head coach of the Chiefs after the 2012 season and Reid chose not to retain Sirianni. Sirianni had been Kansas City’s wide receivers coach before Reid arrived. Maybe Sirianni will feel extra happy, should the Eagles win, that he beat the coach who let him go.

And yet another story is that this will be the first Super Bowl where two African-American quarterbacks will face each other. While there have been several African-American quarterbacks play and win a Super Bowl at this point (former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson among them), there hasn’t been a game where both quarterbacks were African-American. Patrick Mahomes will be trying to win his second Super Bowl in his career after winning the game in the 2019 season.
