KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles got their revenge for Super Bowl LVII on “Monday Night Football” with a 21-17 victory over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. It was coach Andy Reid’s first loss to his former team and center Jason Kelce’s first win against his brother Travis Kelce.

Philadelphia Eagles

One of the talking points for the Eagles before the Super Bowl rematch against the Chiefs, coach Nick Sirianni said, was that the Chiefs “wouldn’t give us their ring back if we beat them this week.” It was a way to put an end to the inflated hype surrounding the game and get the Eagles to view it as nothing more than a potential staple for the 2023 season.

Still, this one must have been pretty sweet.

The Eagles escaped Arrowhead with a 21-17 victory. And while this doesn’t change what happened in Super Bowl LVII, it puts Philadelphia in a great position as it pushes for a return to the championship game. The Eagles maintain the best record in football (9-1) despite being tested by playoff-caliber teams like the Miami Dolphins, Dallas Cowboys and Chiefs in recent weeks. The hype around the Super Bowl rematch is behind them, and the push for the NFC top seed is on.

Mind-blowing NextGen statistic: Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones was double-teamed on 70 percent of his passes and still generated four pressures and two sacks. Hurts was sacked by the Chiefs five times in the first half.

Disturbing trend: Philadelphia became the NFL’s No. 1 defense (66.3 YPG), but was gashed for 121 yards in the first half alone. The Eagles had similar issues against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVII when Kansas City ran for 158 yards.

QB breakdown: Hurts was under duress for most of the first half and managed just 46 passing yards and one interception. However, he had a few breakthrough moments in the second half, including on a 41-yard dime down the right sideline to DeVonta Smith midway through the fourth quarter, setting up Hurts’ go-ahead touchdown. Hurts finished 14 of 22 with 150 passing yards and rushed for two of the Eagles’ touchdowns. –Tim McManus

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs’ lack of offensive production, a nuisance early in the season when they were on a six-game winning streak, is now a problem. A big problem.

The Chiefs were shut out in the second half for a third straight game Monday night as they fell out of the top seed in the AFC playoffs with a 21-17 loss to the Eagles. The Chiefs, 7-3, are a half-game behind the Baltimore Ravens in the race for the only first-round bye in the AFC playoffs.

The Chiefs led 17-7 at halftime but, like in Week 8 against the Denver Broncos and Week 9 against the Dolphins, they failed to score in the final two quarters.

QB breakdown: Mahomes threw two touchdown passes, but otherwise it was another slow game for him and the passing game. Mahomes threw his only interception in the end zone when the Chiefs were within field goal range. He finished 24 of 43 for 177 yards with a rating of 71.6.

Mind-blowing next-gen stats: The Chiefs blitzed a defensive back six times in the first half. Injuries on those plays were 1 for 3 with one interception and three sacks.

Crucial game: On second-and-10 with just under two minutes left, Mahomes threw a pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling that would have been the go-ahead score, but the ball slipped through the receiver’s hands. The Chiefs receiver has dropped 26 passes this season, the most in the NFL. –Adam Teicher
