Aside from “The Kelce Bowl,” this year’s Super Bowl has been regarded by fans as “The Andy Reid Bowl.”
Reid has led two teams to the Super Bowl in his 24 years as head coach, with his only win coming with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2019. But in 2004, Reid led his Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl, ultimately losing to the New England patriots. in the end.
Reid has been the Chiefs’ head coach for 10 years, but for 14 seasons he was in Philadelphia coaching the Eagles, which is why fans think there’s some revenge in store for him on Sunday at State Farm Stadium.
On opening night of the Super Bowl, Reid, wearing a signature Chiefs Tommy Bahama jersey, was reunited onstage with some of his former players in Philadelphia as fans cheered as they hugged each other. His former players included Brandon Graham and Jason Kelce.

Because of his experience, Reid is trying to keep things as they are with his team this week.
