San Francisco 49ers @ Philadelphia Eagles
They often say that divisional weekend is one of the best weekends in football, but with the lackluster games last week, many felt that this weekend's games would be better. However, due to untimely injuries to Brock Purdy ($1.54, -36%), and even Josh Johnson ($1.08), this game was anything but competitive.
Christian McCaffrey ($17.69, -2%) was the lone bright spot for San Francisco Sunday and accounted for their only score on the day. Outside of McCaffrey, San Francisco wasn't able to move the ball as Brock Purdy sustained a completely torn UCL which might require Tommy John Surgery. Shortly after that, Josh Johnson sustained a concussion. Deebo Samuel ($2.64, -19%), George Kittle ($4.35, -14%), and McCaffrey all accounted for under 100 receiving yards.
With all the injuries, it now remains to be seen who will be the starter next year. Purdy likely is facing a year of recovery and will be out of the mix for San Francisco which leaves them with the options of re-signing Jimmy Garoppolo ($1.42) or trotting out Trey Lance ($4.02) again. In either case, we have a full summer to debate the future signal caller of San Francisco.
As for the Eagles, it wasn't absolute domination on the day as Jalen Hurts ($2.71, -9%) wasn't as sharp in the passing game as many thought he would be. Hurts only accounted for 121 yards through the air, but the damage was all done by Philadelphia through the ground game.
3 separate runners were able to hit pay dirt through the ground game Jalen Hurts, Miles Sanders ($0.55, 4%), and Boston Scott ($4.08, 14%). Kenny Gainwell ($4.83) led the team in rushing attempts on the day and all accounted for 150 yards on the ground and four scores. With that performance, the Eagles punched their ticket to the big dance and are ready to take on a familiar face.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs
Lots of words were exchanged during the week between these two teams. While lots of trash was talked about, the game was an absolute barn burner. Patrick Mahomes ($20.49, -2%) took on Joe Burrow ($10.38, -10%) in the rematch of last year's AFC championship and this game was just as thrilling.
Joe Burrow entered the game after dismantling Buffalo last week and figured to keep it rolling in this one. However, Burrow struggled to keep the offense humming this week compared to last as Kansas City was able to disrupt the Bengals' offensive line unlike Buffalo last week. Under duress Burrow was sacked multiple times which led to 2 interceptions and one score.
Cincinnati was forced to turn to the ground game with Burrow, Joe Mixon ($9.74, -16%), and Samaje Perine ($0.79, -1%). Samaje Perine was able to score the only touchdown on the ground and Joe Burrow led the team in yards. Nothing was able to work on the ground either, and Cincinnati was forced to rely upon their defense to take them to their second Superbowl in two years.
Patrick Mahomes faced numerous questions entering the season and has proved many wrong. In this game, he quieted the doubters with 2 scores and no interceptions. Tossing the rock 43 times Mahomes threw for over 300 yards. Once again the main target of the evening was Travis Kelce ($9.88, -3%), and then unsung hero Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($0.49, 48%) corralled over 100 yards receiving to give big red the win.
While Mahomes did throw for two scores the Bengals shut down their rushing game which made this game tight. Ultimately, the game was decided by a defensive error by Cincinnati as Mahomes was rushing near the sideline he was shoved in the back when already out of bounds. This triggered a penalty setting up the game-winning field goal from Harrison Butker.
12 days from now Andy Reid will take on the team he once coached against for 10 years. With rumors of Reid possibly retiring if he were to win a Superbowl, wouldn't winning a Superbowl against his first-ever head coaching job be quite the way to end it?
