Who’s Playing in the Super Bowl LVII?
In 2023, the first players that will play in the Super Bowl are the Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs. Philadelphia Eagles are representing the National Football Conference (NFC), one of the two conferences of the NFL. The Eagles are favored to win in the Super Bowl, but only by a slim margin. This margin entails that it will be a close game, albeit the Eagles are expected to win the trophy.
On the other hand, the Kansas City Chiefs represent the American Football Conference, the other team under the National Football League. This team is the first in the AFC West, and with Patrick Mahomes on their team, there’s no denying they’ll give the Philadelphia Eagles a hard time.
You can tell these two teams apart by their respective color schemes. The Philadelphia Eagles wear black, green, and white uniforms. On the other hand, the Kansas City Chiefs wear uniforms in the colors gold, red, and white.
Why Is Called the Super Bowl LVII?
The first Super Bowl was held on January 15, 1967, a merger of the AFL-NFL World Championship, later known as Super Bowl I. As you may have observed, the Super Bowl uses Roman numbers. This year’s Super Bowl is called as such because it’s the 57th Super Bowl in history, and 57 is LVII in numerals.
The Super Bowl has used numerals since Super Bowl V (except the Super Bowl 50). It’s to clarify any confusion that may happen from fans, players, and organizers.
The Philadelphia Eagles and the Kansas City Chiefs have their own solid set of fans. It’s why the Super Bowl LVII is an event that excites football fans worldwide.
