Kansas City @ Philadelphia
Current Records: Kansas City 1-2; Philadelphia 1-2
What to Know
The Philadelphia Eagles will take on the Kansas City Chiefs at 1 p.m. ET next Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Philadelphia will be seeking to avenge the 27-20 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Sept. 17 of 2017.
On Monday, the Eagles lost to the Dallas Cowboys on the road by a decisive 41-21 margin. No one had a standout game offensively for Philadelphia, but they got scores from TE Zach Ertz and WR Greg Ward. QB Jalen Hurts ended up with a passer rating of 141.
The Philadelphia defensive unit accumulated four sacks for a loss of 18 yards. Leading the way was NT Javon Hargrave and his two sacks. Hargrave now has four sacks.
Meanwhile, the point spread favored Kansas City on Sunday, but luck did not. They were within a late touchdown of stealing the victory, but they took the “L” against the Los Angeles Chargers 30-24. Despite the loss, Kansas City got a solid performance out of QB Patrick Mahomes, who passed for three TDs and 260 yards on 44 attempts in addition to picking up 45 yards on the ground. Mahomes ended up with a passer rating of 124.40.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. One last thing to keep an eye out for: Philadelphia hit the right side of the field hard in their last contest, throwing toward the right sideline for 18 yards on 2.57 yards per attempt for 12 points of their total 21. This is exactly where the Chiefs’ defense has most struggled to contain the passing attack, however; they have allowed 20 passing yards on this side of the field out of a total 843 passing yards allowed.
