EXCLUSIVE CONTENT Get ESPN+ Four stat trends in Super Bowl 2023: Can Eagles beat Chiefs deep?

I started hunting in numbers before Super Bowl LVII so you don’t have to.

When we undertook this statistical storyline exercise before the big game a year ago, we highlighted both teams’ over-reliance on early rollback, which ended up being a key factor in the game. The Los Angeles Rams’ meager 1.8 yards per estimated run (and minus 0.33 EPA per game) on early downs nearly cost them a Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals.

As for this game, which will take place at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona (6:30 pm ET, Sunday, Fox)? We’re looking at the highest quality matchup possible in the trenches, Jalen Hurts’s weakness that the Kansas City Chiefs defense could exploit, how Kansas City’s defense scheme stacks up against the Philadelphia Eagles’ threats, and how much each team relies on. on your quarterback. We rely on data from a variety of sources, including NFL Next Gen Stats, Sportzshala internal metrics using Next Gen Stats data, and Sportzshala video tracking data.

Let’s dive in.
