Week 11 of the NFL season came to a close as Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles pulled off a 21-17 comeback victory over Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs (7-2) on Monday Night Football in a rematch of Super Bowl LVII.
It’s the first time in their NFL careers star Eagles center Jason Kelce has bragging rights over his younger brother, All-Pro Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Travis — without Taylor Swift in attendance — also had a crucial red zone fumble in the second half.
The Eagles sputtered on offense for much of the night, but connected when it mattered via screen passes to D’Andre Swift and two consecutive deep throws from Hurts to DeVonta Smith to set up the go-ahead score.
The Chiefs had a chance to pull off some more Mahomes magic, but Marques Valdez-Scantling and Justin Watson dropped deep passes from the star quarterback in the game’s final drive.
Here are all top moments from a Monday night to remember!
Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs
Sack for sack!
Both high-powered offenses went three-and-out on their first possessions, with Haason Reddick sacking Mahomes before the Chiefs’ pass rush returned the favor against Hurts.
A lot has been made about Mahomes’ weapons aside from Kelce in the current Chiefs offense. But four different players touched the ball on Kansas City’s 10-play drive for the game’s first score, and none of them were Kelce. Mahomes found receiver Justin Watson wide open in the end zone behind a double-teamed Kelce for the touchdown.
Swift in the house after all!
No, not Taylor — but the Eagles answered right back by marching down the field for a touchdown of their own, capped off by two fierce runs from D’Andre Swift.
L’Jarius Sneed took advantage of an underthrown ball by Hurts to get the ball back for the Chiefs.
Eagles get it right back!
This time it was the Eagles’ defense returning the favor as trade deadline acquisition Kevin Byard intercepted Mahomes in the end zone.
It’s him, hi, he’s the problem it’s him
Noted Swiftie and “Anti-Hero” fan Chris Jones made sure the Eagles’ ensuing drive went nowhere with two sacks in three plays.
Kelce on the board!
Who else but Travis Kelce to give the Chiefs a 14-7 lead right before halftime after big runs from Mahomes and Kadarius Toney?
Chiefs DOMINATING the trenches
Kansas City’s pass rush has five sacks on Hurts in the first half, including two each from Chris Jones and Trent McDuffie.
New half, same Chiefs pass rush!
Kansas City recorded its sixth sack of the day to stifle the Eagles’ opening drive of the second half.
D’Andre Swift finally found a blank space in the middle of the field for a 35-yard gain to get the Eagles in the red zone for just the second time all night.
Back in the game!
Jalen Hurts finally used the Chiefs’ blitz-heavy approach against them, sprinting straight ahead into the end zone to bring the Eagles back within striking distance.
Jalen Carter almost intercepted this…
Intercepting a spike? The Eagles rookie came close to an unbelievable play at the end of the first half.
The Chiefs’ second giveaway of the night is a crucial red zone fumble by Travis Kelce as Kansas City had looked to increase its lead back to two scores.
Eagles go three-and-out…
… and FOX Sports NFC East reporter Ralph Vacchiano was dumbfounded by Philadelphia’s play calls.
Another huge completion to Justin Watson kept the Chiefs’ drive alive on 3rd and nine.
Eagles are SOARING
Back-to-back deep throws to DeVonta Smith got the Eagles to the one-yard line, and one tush push later, Philadelphia took the lead with under seven minutes to go!
Patrick Mahomes almost had an incredible game-flipping touchdown pass, but Marquez Valdes-Scantling could not hang on.
Another dropped deep pass on fourth down gave Philadelphia the unlikely comeback victory.
