Patrick Mahomes and his Kansas City Chiefs will be battling it out with Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles. As they’re gearing up for the Super Bowl, there is a chance the Chiefs might be cursed. Throughout the playoffs, the Eagles have had an unfair advantage of the Philly curse. It seemed to have worked against the 49ers and it has worked in the past against multiple teams as well.
Furthermore, as the Super Bowl gets closer, players like Travis Kelce and Patrick Mahomes might just be a little mad at the actions of fans in Philadelphia. Twitter experienced an uproar with fans going off and jokingly speaking about the Philly curse.
What exactly is the Philly curse and why is Patrick Mahomes scared of it?
The infamous Philadelphia curse has struck multiple times in the past. Interestingly, the supposed curse itself functions in a simple manner.

It is noteworthy that the statue itself is placed at a monumental place from a shot in the Rocky movies. Furthermore, this supposed curse has worked in the past, even against teams as good as the Brady led-Patriots, as per ESPN.
