Monday night football may not always be the best, especially because of how late it goes on the first day of the work week, but last week’s game was an exception.  In an exciting Super Bowl rematch between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles, the unsatisfied Eagles were able to get revenge, winning 21-17.   

 Both teams’ first possessions of the ball resulted in a punt, but the Chiefs took it to the endzone on their second possession.  They strung ten plays together and had the ball for 5 minutes and 43 seconds, resulting in a short pass from Patrick Mahomes to Justin Watson.  Harrison Butker scored the extra point, making the score 7-0.   

The Eagles tied it up on their very next possession with a touchdown from D’Andre Swift and Jake Elliott scored the extra point.   

The Chiefs were able to pull away a little in the second quarter, holding the Eagles on defense and scoring both a touchdown and a field goal.  That was the end of their scoring run, however.   

Going into the second half of the game, down by 10 points, the Eagles scored a touchdown, making the score 14-17.  The Chiefs had an almost six-minute possession in the third quarter, but unfortunately fumbled the ball and it was recovered by Philly linebacker, Nicholas Morrow.   

The fourth quarter was not much different for both teams.  The Eagles scored another touchdown, putting them in the lead 21-17, and the Chiefs struggled to find the endzone.   

In a final attempt to take the lead back, Mahomes passed it deep to Marquez Valdes-Scantling, but it was dropped. It seems that was the story of their game, and their season so far.  

The Chiefs have struggled game after game with missed scoring opportunities because of dropped passes.  

The Eagles on the other hand, are looking pretty good so far, and their win over the Chiefs, making their record 9-1, solidified their spot as the number one team in the league.
