57 things to know ahead of Super Bowl 57: The Mahomes-Kelce connection, A.J. Brown's dominance against man coverage and more

It's finally here.

On Sunday, February 12, the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl 57 — a game that promises everything football fans could ever dream of.

To help pass the time until kickoff, here are 57 interesting statistics to know ahead of the big game.

1. Jalen Hurts averaged 8.5 yards per pass attempt against man coverage during the regular season, the highest mark among the 34 quarterbacks with at least 50 attempts against man-coverage looks.

2. Patrick Mahomes is in a world of his own when it comes to extending the play. The Chiefs signal-caller has produced a 92.4 passing grade on plays where he's taken longer than three seconds to throw the ball, and the next-closest quarterback is Mitchell Trubisky … at 78.6.

Highest-graded quarterbacks on throws 3.0-plus seconds after the snap (min. 25 attempts; postseason included)
Name Attempts PFF passing grade
Patrick Mahomes 251 92.4
Mitchell Trubisky 42 78.6
Joe Burrow 103 76.2
Josh Allen 226 75.9
Matthew Stafford 76 75.6

3. A.J. Brown has racked up 871 yards against single coverage this season, 112 more yards than the next-closest receiver. His 5.09 yards per route run against single coverage ranks second to only Tyreek Hill (5.72) over the campaign.

4. Chris Jones has recorded a career-high 93 quarterback pressures so far this season, making him one of just six interior defenders to exceed 90 pressures since PFF started grading in 2006.

5. No quarterback has moved the chains more through designed rushing attempts than Jalen Hurts (55). Postseason included, Hurts has 471 yards from designed rush attempts, second to only Lamar Jackson (559).

6. Including playoffs, 52.2% of Patrick Mahomes‘ career passing yardage has come after the catch. Of the 85 quarterbacks who have attempted at least 1,000 passes since 2006, only Jimmy Garoppolo has had a higher percentage of his career passing yards come after the catch.

7. Jalen Hurts is the highest-graded quarterback in the league in the fourth quarter and overtime this season. His 1.2% turnover-worthy play rate ranks third among the 55 QBs who have attempted 25 or more passes in the fourth quarter or overtime this season.

8. Patrick Mahomes has been sacked on just 10.5% of his pressured dropbacks, the best rate among qualifying quarterbacks. The Chiefs signal-caller has finished in the top four in this statistic every season since 2018.

9. Eagles center Jason Kelce hasn't allowed a sack since Week 6 of the 2021 season. Since that sack, Kelce has gone 1,051 pass-blocking snaps without allowing his quarterback to be touched by a pass-rusher.

10. Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes have combined for a 121.1 passer rating during their time together in Kansas City, sixth among the 189 quarterback-receiver duos that have recorded at least 250 targets since 2006.
