Eagles Film Room: Did Chiefs shock win over Patriots give Philly a formula to win the Super Bowl?


The Super bowl is nearly upon us and it’s safe to say that the city is bursting with excitement. The question is, can the Eagles really derail a Patriots freight train that has plowed through every station imaginable? The answer may lie in very familiar territory…

The Chiefs pulled off one of the most surprising wins of the year in the first week of the season, dominating their rivals in a 42-27 affair. Nobody saw it coming. An elusive new weapon in the backfield and an underdog wide receiver gave the Chiefs plenty of firepower…but amidst all the explosive plays lay a formula that could be duplicated by the Eagles.

Doug Pederson spent years learning under Andy Reid. The intricacies of the West Coast offense and the play-calling prowess we see today were all nurtured during Pederson’s time with Philadelphia prior to his promotion to Chiefs offensive coordinator. From stacked formations to a potential weakness in the Pats defense, we run through everything from that impressive win that the Eagles could implement into their gameplan.
