Super Bowl Predictions 1/26/24

By Landon Matewsky and John Morand

Is your Team still in the playoffs?

If your team isn’t, get a better team, that team is the Lions. The Detroit Lions are the underdog team of the playoffs. Although their chances are more unlikely than others to make it to the Super Bowl, they still have a chance. This is the first time the Lions have won 2 playoff games since 1957, so if you’re rooting for the Chiefs, check yourself. Are you rooting for them because you want them to win, or are you only doing so because everyone else is?

Why do people root for the Kansas City Chiefs?

The Chiefs have already established power in the league by winning two Super Bowls and appearing in the last three out of the four, according to Matt Verdamane from Sports Illustrated. The Chiefs have become a Pop Culture Phenomenon.

On the subject of pop culture, the Chiefs have gained even more attention this season from Kansas’s tight end Travis Kelce being romantically involved with pop star Taylor Swift. Swift has appeared at multiple Chiefs games and it’s clear the NFL is milking the opportunity. 

The NFL understands the massive fanbase Swift has and is plenty fine annoying football fans with the camera constantly panning to her reaction. This is purely in the name of profit for the league, and not at all beneficial for most fans of the game.

One could say the Chiefs are an avalanche on top of a mountain, ready to fall at any moment. According to Arrowhead Addict, the Chiefs have a 22.22% chance of winning the Super Bowl. That may seem like a low chance, but it isn’t with one more playoff game and a Super Bowl. No matter what happens this Sunday, these stats and percentages will change significantly.

A Super Bowl conspiracy?

A popular theory going around is that the Ravens and the 49ers will be the two teams to make it to Super Bowl LVIII. Yeah, they both have the odds on their side, but this prediction is also based somewhat on colors. Yeah, that sounds crazy, but it won’t sound so crazy after you hear about the NFL’s ‘Super Bowl Logo Conspiracy’.

Super Bowl LVI’s (first year with colored logos for the Super Bowl, 2022) logo was a sort of combination of orange and yellow, and it just so happened that the final two teams were the Bengals (Orange) and Chargers (Yellow).

 It didn’t stop there, the next year’s (2023) Super Bowl logo colors were red and green, and as if to prove the theory, the Chiefs (Red) faced off against the Eagles (Green). 

This year’s Super Bowl has a logo consisting of red and purple… coincidentally, three of the four remaining teams, the Chiefs, the Ravens, and the ‘Niners each have one of those colors. Obviously, the only possible matchups for the Super Bowl are Chiefs vs Lions (Red vs Blue), Ravens vs Lions (Purple vs Blue), Chiefs vs 49ers (Red vs Red), and finally Ravens vs 49ers (Purple vs Red). 

The Ravens and 49ers would perfectly fit Super Bowl LVIII’s colors- but also fuel the ongoing theory that the league could be scripted.

With Super Bowl LVIII’s anticipation, all eyes are on the crucial games this Sunday. This weekend will shape the year’s Super Bowl (February 11th), so it’s important not to miss. The Chiefs and Ravens face off at 3:00 PM EST, and the Lions challenge the 49ers at 6:30 EST. Both NFC and AFC championship games can be watched on CBS, or viewed on a variety of streaming services including (but not limited to) Paramount+ and NFL+. Who are you rooting for this Super Bowl? Do they have a chance at winning it?
