Current Records: Kansas City 1-2; Philadelphia 1-2
What to Know
The Philadelphia Eagles will look to defend their home turf Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs at 1 p.m. ET. The Eagles will be seeking to avenge the 27-20 loss they suffered the last time these two teams played Sept. 17 of 2017.
Last Monday, Philadelphia 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, Kansas City was within a late touchdown of stealing the win, but they took the “L” against the Los Angeles Chargers 30-24. Kansas City’s defeat came about despite a quality game from 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.
Philadelphia is expected to lose this next one by 7. Now might not be the best time to take Philadelphia against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past two consecutive games.
These two teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. One last thing to keep an eye out for: the Eagles hit the right side of the field hard in their last game, 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.
