KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Philadelphia Eagles secured a 21-17 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in a hard-fought Super Bowl LVII rematch on Monday night. Although center Jason Kelce and his teammates were pleased with the win, they left Arrowhead Stadium feeling that they could have performed better, especially on offense.
With challenging weather conditions of wind and rain, neither team’s passing offense excelled. Philadelphia’s Jalen Hurts threw for 150 yards and an interception, while Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes managed 177 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception. However, it was Hurts’ 41-yard completion to DeVonta Smith that set up a rushing score, ultimately securing the win for the Eagles.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, have been struggling, with their wide receivers dropping 9% of the passes thrown their way this season, the highest percentage through a team’s first 10 games in the past 10 seasons. Despite their offensive challenges, the Chiefs have a 7-3 record and are tied for the fewest losses in the AFC.
Looking ahead, both teams remain strong contenders for the Super Bowl, with the possibility of a rematch in Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas. The Eagles have the best record in football, and Kelce emphasized that the Chiefs will be right there in the hunt. There is anticipation for what the future holds for both teams as the season progresses.
