The Eagles exacted revenge over the Chiefs for their Super Bowl LVII loss as Philly came back at Arrowhead Stadium on Monday night to win 21-17.
With brothers Travis and Jason Kelce facing off – and rain coming down in Kansas City – both sides played out a physical, scrappy game which saw the Eagles take their first lead in the fourth quarter.
Philly trailed 17-7 at halftime, but a pair of Jalen Hurts rushing touchdowns helped them ultimately get to a 9-1 record as the hosts were shut out in the second half.
The second of Hurts’ scores – which gave the Eagles a 21-17 lead with just 6:20 remaining – came after a 44-yard completion to DeVonta Smith which set the team up at the one-yard-line.
The win represents the first time that Jason has beaten his brother Travis in their NFL careers.

Nonetheless, there were no hard feelings as the pair shared a hug and a laugh after the game.
Despite scoring a second-quarter touchdown, it was a relatively quiet night for Travis, whose girlfriend Taylor Swift was not in attendance as she tours South America.
He finished the game with seven catches for 44 yards, and also fumbled the ball away in the red zone in the fourth quarter, when Kansas City was trying to extend a 17-14 lead.
While the Kelces’ parents Donna and Ed were at the game, Swift’s parents, Andrea and Scott, reportedly canceled plans to attend with their daughter performing a rescheduled show in Rio de Janeiro.
The Chiefs still had a chance with less than 2 minutes to go, converting on fourth down and then getting help from a roughing-the-passer penalty.
But a perfectly placed ball from Mahomes went right through the hands of Marquez Valdes-Scantling for a would-be 51-yard touchdown, and the Eagles stopped Kansas City on fourth down to put the game away.
Hurts threw for just 150 yards with a pick, but he made the plays Mahomes could not in the second half. He also got some help from D’Andre Swift, who ran for 76 yards and a score, and DeVonta Smith, who caught six balls for 99 yards.
Mahomes was held to 177 yards passing with two touchdowns and an interception in the end zone. Isiah Pacheco added 89 yards rushing for the Chiefs, who couldn’t overcome their two red-zone turnovers and a plethora of penalties.
