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 achieved his 100th career win with the Chiefs, not counting his 140 wins with the Eagles, which stood as the franchise record.
“The people here have been amazing since I arrived,” expressed Reid, who spent some time in the hospital after last week’s loss to the Chargers. “My room was filled with food, so it was great to enjoy a cheesesteak and various other dishes. It feels good to be back.” When asked if returning to Philadelphia evoked any emotions, the typically composed Reid playfully responded, “I’m doing well. Do you want me to shed tears 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 your receivers say, ‘If I do this, it’ll open up opportunities for someone else,’ you know you have a special group of guys,” Mahomes remarked.
