The Philadelphia Eagles made it to Super Bowl LVII by being one of the most complete teams in the NFL this season, but at the heart of all of it has been their control of games in the trenches. Their success' foundation is built upon their offensive and defensive lines, both two of the best units in football.

Landon Dickerson Injury Update

The Eagles offensive line is dealing with some injuries ahead of the big game, with Landon Dickerson nursing an elbow injury. The good news is, as of now, he's expected to play in next Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Dickerson hyper-extended his left elbow in the NFC Championship game, but luckily for the Eagles, the MRI results were positive. The Eagles' offensive line will have a tough task ahead of them in the Super Bowl. The Chiefs' defensive line is no joke, with multiple stars on it in Chris Jones and Frank Clark.

Keeping the offensive line as healthy and intact as possible will be paramount to stopping those two from getting into the Eagles' backfield and disrupting both Jalen Hurts and the bevy of running backs Philly has.

The Eagles weren't the best at preventing sacks this season, ranking No. 19 in the NFL, but any loss to a starter on that line could hurt that number even more, especially against this Chiefs defensive line that ranked No. 2 in the NFL in sacks per game (right behind the Eagles).

The Eagles are currently 1.5-point favorites against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
