Philadelphia Eagles beats Kansas City Chiefs
Philadelphia Eagles beats Kansas City Chiefs Jalen Hurts led a second-half comeback as the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Kansas City Chiefs.
Defending champions Kansas City led 17-7 at halftime with quarterback Hurts rushing for two touchdowns.
So far this season, the Eagles are 9-1, the best record in the NFL, while the Chiefs are 7-3.
Hurts, 25, said, “That was a complete team effort. We found a way.”.
We showed up when it mattered most when two teams were going at it in a hostile environment.”
In what was only the ninth regular-season rematch of the previous season’s Super Bowl, Hurts passed for 150 yards.
A 10-point deficit in Super Bowl 57 was overcome by Kansas City in a classic match to win a second NFL title in four years.
Unlike that match, in which Hurts was sacked five times, Monday’s at Arrowhead Stadium was dominated by defence.
In the second half, he scored the decisive scores, rushing from 10 yards to close the Chiefs’ lead to three points before being pushed over from one yard to complete the comeback.
Despite Patrick Mahomes’ best efforts, Eagles receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling dropped a pass on the Eagles’ goal line, preventing the Chiefs from winning.
Hurts said that his team did not play well on offense. We were definitely strong against them. Our defense did a fantastic job.”.
The team is winning games, but we still need to play our best ball. There is cause for celebration, but we are still a long way from being a finished product.”
