The three biggies, namely, Nick Bosa, Joe Burrow, and Patrick Mahomes, from the three big teams San Francisco 49ers, Cincinnati Bengals, and Kansas City Chiefs, respectively, will go head to head in this weekend’s knockout round.
These thrilling knockouts will soon progress to the most awaited semi-finals. Winners from the two big matches, the San Francisco 49ers against the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs against the Cincinnati Bengals, will qualify for the Super Bowl final round, to be held on February 12, 2023.
According to sports critics, all four teams have nearly equal potential to win the title. Today we have come up with four trending storylines to observe in the upcoming playoff matches.
Will Patrick Mahomes get a speedy recovery?
In this season’s tournament, Kansas City Chiefs have a high chance of winning the Super Bowl. Still, the team has already faced an obstacle as their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffers from an ankle injury during the last week’s match against the Jaguars. The player was sidelined for the time being.
But we have good news for the fans, Mahomes will play in the knockout round, and the team has also announced to take a look at the star player’s practice session.
The Chiefs are strong contenders, but to progress toward the final, they need to outplay the Bengals, the team to which they lost 3 times.
Will the Bengals hit the bull’s eye this time?
The team was the finalist in the last season. But before that, they had been far from the playoffs since 1991. The Bengals are in great form in this year’s tournament as their popular quarterback Joe Burrow remains unstoppable in each game.
The youngster Joe is on a rookie bond; his remuneration is still low, but whatever he has given to his team is beyond imagination. The Bengals are the only franchise to retain the unbeaten streak; thus, they are confident of winning the big match on Sunday against the Chiefs.
What if they lose? Sadly they will demote and join to NFL’s exclusive club Minnesota Vikings.
Jalen Hurt is looking forward to his Christmas wish.
Tons of fans are rooting for Philadelphia Eagles only for the magic play of the star player, Jalen Hurt. Last year, the Eagles released a Christmas album, and they took vocals from the team members for a guest appearance.
Jalen Hurt was also one among them, and for the vocal, he said that we all know what’s on his Christmas list; it’s the Super Bowl.
The very line portrays how desperate the player is to win the title. He is even one of the nominees for the prestigious Most Valuable Player. So he holds great chances to give his team an upper hand for the knockouts.
Check out the rookie Brock Purdy this weekend.
The kid, Brock Purdy, the Mr. Irrelevant of the 49ers team, has not only played his ball right but has also led his team to win 8 straight matches. He had a roller coaster journey during the season for the injuries, but if his team wins on Sunday, he would be the first rookie quarterback to head to Super Bowl; that would be commendable stuff to watch.
