Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes and Eagles QB Jalen Hurts will face off in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, Feb. 12, with kickoff at 6:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
It's a historic moment for the NFL: Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts are set to become the first Black quarterbacks to face off in a Super Bowl. Their teams, the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, will meet in Super Bowl LVII, making this an unprecedented event.
Patrick Mahomes has the opportunity to make history as the first Black quarterback ever to win two Super Bowl games when he leads the Chiefs against the Eagles on Feb. 12. Should he succeed, he will join Doug Williams and Russell Wilson as the only Black QBs to have won a championship in the NFL's 103 years. Jalen Hurts is looking to solidify his own legacy in this matchup, aiming to become the fourth Black quarterback ever to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
Mahomes has already made his mark on the league with his incredible talent and leadership, leading the Kansas City Chiefs to their first Super Bowl appearance in 50 years and winning it all in 2020.
Jalen Hurts has also had an impressive season with the Philadelphia Eagles, leading them to their first playoff berth since 2017. He has shown tremendous poise and resilience throughout this season, overcoming adversity and proving himself as a capable leader.
Colin Kaepernick, Steve McNair and Cam Newton also played in the Super Bowl as starting quarterbacks but came up short in their title bids. (Wilson also lost a Super Bowl bid — he played in two Super Bowls for the Seahawks, winning one and losing one.)
