The Inside The Iggles staff has been split on this for two weeks. For 15 days after a thrilling win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9, the words 'Super Bowl' rematch have been tossed around. Sure, we knew the winner of the Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs game on Monday Night Football wouldn't receive a Vince Lombardi Trophy. The Birds gave us a reason to smile though.
21-17 is your final score. The flight home will be a little easier to endure. That being said, who gives a damn about the 'Super Bowl rematch angle'?
How sweet it is! The Birds are 9-1!
How about another round of applause for the Eagles' second-half performance?
Philly's defense pulled off second-half shutout. Their offense pulled off the second-half comeback.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling pulled off his best Quez Watkins impression, dropping a pass that his team needed him to pull in.
The Brotherly Shove made a few appearances, providing a few key first downs and the go-ahead score.
You tell 'em Pat Gallen! We totally agree!
As for the game, let's talk particulars. It wasn't A.J. Brown's best game (one catch for eight yards), but his buddies on offense picked up the slack. DeVonta Smith caught six passes that resulted in 99 yards. D'Andre Swift hauled in three tosses for 31yards. The latter also toted the rock 12 times for 76 yards.
Jalen Hurts rushed for two touchdowns. Sean Desai's defense was huge. Marquez Valdes-Scantling pulled off his best Quez Watkins impression, dropping a pass that his team needed him to pull in.
The Eagles finally beat Andy Reid. Jason Kelce finally won a game with his younger brother Travis on the other sideline. Most importantly, the Birds leave Arrowhead Stadium with a win! The stakes weren't as high as they were last February, but this time it was Philly that erased the ten-point deficit. .
Read it and weep Chiefs fans! E-A-G-L-E-S-Eagles chants can be heard all over Kansas City's streets tonight!
