|Published February 06, 2023
As all eyes freeze on the Super Bowl, Patrick Mahomes and Jalen Hurts will be the main men in action. The two quarterbacks are headed to Arizona and will have a whole bag of skills up their sleeves. The University of Phoenix Stadium will have the fortune to host a matchup that will probably go down as one of the biggest QB rivalries for years to come. With Jalen Hurts announcing his arrival to the league in style, he has joined the likes of Patrick Mahomes and the other great young quarterbacks of the league.
As the two quarterbacks prepare for this year’s grand finale, Mahomes’ experience will back him. The Chiefs’ QB will be playing his third Super Bowl while Hurts has had just 3 playoff games to his name yet. Though these stats put Mahomes as a favorite, the skill and athleticism of Hurts will be at an all-time high, wanting to prove his presence in the league.
Patrick Mahomes has had a few more years in the league than Jalen Hurts. The Chiefs drafted him in 2017 while the Eagles drafted Hurts in 2020. This also reflects in the age difference between the two. However, at 24 Mahomes never made it to the Super Bowl. His first Super Bowl was played when he was 6 months beyond his 25th birthday. Jalen Hurts will be 24 and some months old when he steps on the field in Arizona.
