Why the Eagles can cover 

Jalen Hurts and Philadelphia’s offense should be able to produce at a high level. The Eagles averaged more than 28 points per game during the regular season, ranking in the top five in total yards, first downs, rushing yards, and several additional categories. Philadelphia set a new NFL record for rushing touchdowns and became only the third team in the history of the league to eclipse 2,500 rushing yards and 4,000 passing yards in a season. The Eagles have an elite offensive line, and Kansas City is below-average in turnover creation, first down prevention, and red zone efficiency allowed.

In addition, Kansas City allowed more passing touchdowns (33) than any team in the league this season, and Philadelphia is 16-1 with Hurts under center. He ranks in the top five in passer rating, QBR, and interception avoidance and set a new league record with 15 rushing touchdowns from a quarterback. He is a dynamic two-way threat who logged 833 rushing yards, and Hurts has a pair of wide receivers in A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, who each ranked in the top 10 in receiving yards. See which team to pick here.
