The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles do not have much of an on-field history.

The Super Bowl 57 participants have seen each other once every four years since the 2001 campaign. They met on three occasions before that run of games in 1972, 1992 and 1998.

Kansas City holds a 5-4 edge in the head-to-head history, but only the meeting last season in Philadelphia can be applied to break down the February 12 title clash.

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs beat Jalen Hurts and the Eagles 42-30 inside Lincoln Financial Field in Week 4 last year.

Even parts of that matchup can be thrown away since Tyreek Hill is no longer on the Chiefs and A.J. Brown has since joined the Eagles, but at minimum, the two defenses have in-person experience against Mahomes and Hurts. That could help either defense prepare for their battle inside State Farm Stadium.

Kansas City has a 5-4 record and a three-game winning streak against Philadelphia.

The Chiefs won the last battle between the two sides in Week 4 of the 2021 season. Patrick Mahomes threw for five touchdowns in the 42-30 victory.

Three of those touchdown passes went to Tyreek Hill, one went to Clyde Edwards-Helaire and the other was caught by Jody Fortson. Travis Kelce did not find the end zone and only had four catches for 23 yards.

Kelce will be expected to put up much higher totals in all receiving stat columns in the Super Bowl, especially with injuries hurting the wide receiver room. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Kadarius Toney are listed as questionable, while Mecole Hardman is doubtful, per the team's injury report.

Kansas City also experienced a change in running back between last year's meeting with the Eagles and Super Bowl 57. Rookie Isiah Pacheco is now the lead rusher. Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams shared the bulk of the carries in Philadelphia in 2021.

Jalen Hurts lost his first head-to-head battle with Mahomes, but he still put up strong numbers. He went 32-for-48 with 387 passing yards and a pair of touchdowns. DeVonta Smith caught seven balls for 122 yards as Hurts' top target.

Hurts now has A.J. Brown to work with him and Smith in the passing game, and no matter which Chiefs are healthy, the Eagles have the positional edge at wide receiver.

The Eagles have lost Zach Ertz since the last meeting with the Chiefs, but Dallas Goedert, who had five catches, 56 yards and a score in that game, has been a strong replacement for the three-time All-Pro tight end.

The two franchises met two other times in the last decade. Each of the last three meetings took place within the first four weeks of the regular season.

Andy Reid won his return to Philadelphia in 2013 behind the Alex Smith-Donnie Avery passing connection. Avery had 141 receiving yards in the 26-16 win over an Eagles team coached by Chip Kelly.

In 2017, Smith and Carson Wentz faced each other in the quarterback battle. Wentz threw for 82 more passing yards, but he was on the losing side. Kareem Hunt had 81 rushing yards and two scores, and Kelce produced eight catches, 103 receiving yards and a touchdown in the 27-20 victory.

Philadelphia's last win over Kansas City occurred in 2009, when Kevin Kolb threw for 327 yards and two scores in a 34-14 victory at Arrowhead Stadium.
