The Super Bowl LVII matchup between the AFC's top seeded Kansas City Chiefs (29.1 points per game), and the NFC's top seeded Philadelphia Eagles (28.1 points per game), couldn't be a much better one considering they were also the two-highest scoring offenses in each conference, making Sunday the seventh Super Bowl matchup ever between the top scoring offense by points per game in each conference.

The game itself will be played on natural grass after it gets rolled in on a tray after receiving the sunlight it needs during the week. Players on both sides of the Super Bowl matchup will likely appreciate the effort the Cardinals go through to provide players with natural grass in a domed stadium.
