The Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles will face off in Super Bowl LVII, which will take place Feb. 12.
The game will air live on Fox from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
The Chiefs beat the Cincinnati Bengals to win the AFC title Sunday, while the Eagles beat the San Francisco 49ers to win the NFC championship.
In the AFC game, quarterback Patrick Mahomes scrambled for a first down on his badly sprained right ankle, then was shoved late out of bounds by Joseph Ossai, giving Harrison Butker a chance to kick a 45-yard field goal with 3 seconds left that gave the Chiefs a 23-20 victory over the Bengals.
The Chiefs finally managed to beat the Bengals after three straight losses, including a three-point overtime defeat in last year’s conference championship game. Kansas City advanced to play the Eagles in their third Super Bowl in four years.
Mahomes, who hurt his ankle against Jacksonville in the divisional round, threw for 326 yards and two touchdowns, even though he was missing three of his wide receivers to injuries by the fourth quarter.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling led the way with 116 yards and a touchdown, while Travis Kelce — bad back and all — had seven for 78 yards and a score.
Joe Burrow had 270 yards passing with a touchdown and two interceptions for Cincinnati. He was sacked five times.
Meanwhile, after the NFC game, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts stood on the stage on the field — as his Eagles teammates passed around the NFC championship trophy — and clutched a microphone in front of what was suddenly Philadelphia’s largest karaoke joint. His rendition of the team fight song was a tad off-key.
Hurts had one of Philadelphia’s four rushing touchdowns and the Eagles soared into the Super Bowl, forcing both of San Francisco’s quarterbacks out of the game with injuries and beating the wounded 49ers 31-7 in the NFC championship game Sunday.
The Eagles, who won the Super Bowl five years ago with a different coach and quarterback, will try to do it again behind the formidable duo of Hurts and coach Nick Sirianni.
Hurts had a modest game by his standards after a season in which he was a finalist for MVP. He was 15-of-25 passing for 121 yards and ran for 39, improving to 16-1 as a starter this season. The Eagles (16-3) lost two games that he missed with a sprained right shoulder.
The Eagles will play in the fourth Super Bowl in franchise history on Feb. 12
