Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes destroys the Philadelphia Eagles this past Sunday. Mahomes and the Chiefs give head coach Andy Reid a record-setting homecoming. Mahomes threw for 278 passing yards, five touchdown passes, three to Tyreek Hill, and an interception. The Chiefs went on to defeat the Eagles, 42-30.
Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady’s return to New England was the main focus of this week. However, this was not the only special appearance considering that Reid coached in Philadephia for 14 years. He earned his 100th career win with the Chiefs but this doesn’t include his 140 victories as an Eagle, which was the most in franchise history.
“The people here have been phenomenal since I got here,” said Reid, who was briefly hospitalized after last week’s loss to the Chargers. “My room was loaded with food so it was good to have a cheesesteak and a lot of other things. It’s good to be back.” Asked if coming back to Philadelphia made him emotional, the normally stoic Reid joked: “I’m pretty good. You want me to cry up here?”
Mahomes vs. Hurts
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts threw for career-high 387 yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort. Hurts attempted to go toe-to-toe with the most talented quarterback in the league, Mahomes. The Eagles had three touchdowns called back due to penalties and had to settle for field goals as a result. This affected the outcome greatly against the Chiefs.
“You’re furious that you’re 1-3,” Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said. “The self-inflicted wounds have got to stop.”
The Chiefs were able to snap their two-game losing streak after entering the season with a losing record for the first time since 2015, per ESPN. Mahomes is grateful for his receiving corp and understands how talented this group is.
“When you have receivers coming up and saying: “If I do this, it’ll get someone else open,’ that’s a special group of guys,” Mahomes said.
