Is there a better way to finish off Week 11 in the NFL than with a Super Bowl rematch? Yes, tonight on Monday Night Football, the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will face each other for the first time since Super Bowl LVII. The Chiefs, of course, won that game and host tonight’s game at Arrowhead Stadium. Both teams are seemingly on a path that could lead them to another Super Bowl matchup at the end of this season.
Kansas City enters tonight’s game as a 2.5-point favorites. The Chiefs won last year’s Super Bowl 38-35 after rallying from a 24-14 halftime deficit. QB Patrick Mahomes won the game’s MVP after throwing for three touchdowns, two of which came in the fourth quarter. Kansas City and Philadelphia have essentially picked up where they left off last season. The Chiefs are 7-2 while the Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 8-1. That should make for a great Super Bowl rematch tonight.
Super Bowl Rematch History
In the NFL’s Super Bowl era, tonight’s Eagles-Chiefs matchup will be just the ninth time that a pair of Super Bowl teams will meet in the following regular season. The most recent Super Bowl rematch came during the 2017 regular season. In Super Bowl LI, the Atlanta Falcons had what was thought to be an insurmountable 28-3 second-half lead over the New England Patriots. Tom Brady led the historic comeback and New England won 34-28.
The following season, the two teams met in the regular season. Brady threw two touchdown passes and the Patriots defense suffocated the Falcons in a 23-7 New England victory. That has typically been the case in these Super Bowl rematch games. In the eight that have been played so far, the Super Bowl winner has won six times.
Super Bowl Rematch on Monday Night Football
Yes, it has happened before. Tonight’s Super Bowl rematch will be the second on Monday Night Football. It also happened back in 1997. The Green Bay Packers beat the New England Patriots 35-21 in Super Bowl XXXI. The following season, the two teams met in October. Once again, QB Brett Favre and the Packers would get the best of the Patriots in a 28-10 win. Favre threw for three touchdowns.
The Chiefs have a long history of success on Monday Night Football. Kansas City has won each of its last eight Monday night games. The Chiefs have won a Monday night game in each of the last three regular seasons. They beat their AFC West rival Las Vegas Raiders 30-29 last year. Overall, Kansas City is 18-7 in Monday night games. For a deeper breakdown of tonight’s game and the best picks, check out our Monday Night Football picks page.

Hot Seat Heats Up for NFL Coaches
A number of NFL coaches whose seat was warm heated up with their teams’ performances in Week 11. Michigan football is back in the news again, but not because of the whole stealing signals fiasco. LeBron and Bronny are both trending right now. You’ll see why soon.
Here’s what you can keep an eye on early this week.
- Chargers HC loses it: Brandon Staley has been on a hot seat for pretty much the last two seasons. His Bolts just can’t seem to win, especially close games. LA lost another one-score game – 23-20 – to the Packers yesterday. The defense is terrible and Staley got visibly irritated when asked about it in yesterday’s post-game press conference. The Chargers are now 4-6 and have a long way to go if they are going to make the playoffs.
- Ron Rivera: The New York Giants are 1-8 against teams not named the Washington Commanders this season. Against Coach Rivera’s team, the G-Men are 2-0 and won those games by an average margin of 9.5 points. Yesterday, Washington lost 31-19 to a third-string quarterback. The Commanders are 4-7 and Rivera can barely sit down his seat is so hot.
- Oh Canada: He’s not a head coach, but Pittsburgh offensive coordinator Matt Canada has seen better days. For the fifth time in 10 games, Canada’s offense scored 10 or fewer points. The Steelers average just 16.6 points per game, which is 28th in the NFL. Pittsburgh’s biggest point total this season was 26 in a game where the defense scored twice.
- LeBron & Bronny: Even at 38, LeBron still has it. He scored 37 points on Sunday, including the free throw that put the Lakers ahead in a 105-104 win over Houston. In a season where he was supposed to play fewer minutes, James was on the court for 40 of the game’s 48. His son, Bronny, went through pre-game warmups with his USC teammates yesterday. He has yet to play since suffering a cardiac arrest during a July team workout.
- Super Bowl rematch: Yes, it’s happening tonight. It’s actually a rare event, so there is a lot of hype surrounding tonight’s ninth Super Bowl rematch in NFL history. Don’t forget to check our database for picks for the game.
There you have it. A recap of our illustrious handicappers once again showing their mad skills. We also provided you with a look at today’s schedule and what you can keep an eye on early this week.
