In a thrilling matchup and a rematch of Super Bowl 57, the Philadelphia Eagles got revenge with a 21-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Eagles offense, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, delivered a standout second half performance as the team came back from a 10 point deficit. Though Hurts was limited through the air with just 150 yards and an interception, his running made up for it. He rushed for 29 yards and both of the team’s second half touchdowns – the second ultimately being the game winning. Running back D’Andre Swift scored the team’s other touchdown, tacking on 76 rushing yards in addition to the score.
The defense, for its part, forced two crucial turnovers, and when it mattered most, with the Chiefs driving for a chance to win the game, stood tall and forced a turnover on downs to effectively end the game.
This victory propels the Eagles to a stellar 9-1 record, the best in the NFL. The City of Brotherly Love is buzzing with anticipation as the Eagles eye a deep playoff run.
Looking ahead, the Eagles are set to welcome the formidable Buffalo Bills to Lincoln Financial Field in what’s apt to be a high scoring affair. The Bills 6-5 record is not indicative of their talent, particularly on the offensive side of the ball.
