The Kansas City Chiefs dropped a crushing home game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night as execution could have been smoother to end the game. The 21-17 loss drops the Chiefs to 7-3 on the season, tied for the AFC’s top record.
The rainy conditions on the football field didn’t slow down the Chiefs’ defense as they applied pressure on Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts throughout the game—sacks from Chris Jones and more forced fumbles from cornerback Trent McDuffie. L’Jarius Sneed added a crucial first-half interception, which were all significant contributions on defense.
Mahomes led the offense forward in the wet conditions, continuing to throw the football down the field. The reigning league Most Valuable Player connected with Justin Watson and Travis Kelce for touchdowns, but miscues and drops hurt the team in the final quarter. Isiah Pacheco was running angrily against the team he grew up rooting for, creating a balance for the offense with a solid running performance.
The Chiefs follow their bye week with a tough loss, not keeping steady with the usual success under head coach Andy Reid. He suffered his first loss against his former team since joining Kansas City.
