The Philadelphia Eagles used a second half surge behind quarterback Jalen Hurts, as well as key defensive stops, to get their revenge against the Kansas City Chiefs, 21-17, on Monday night.
The last time these two teams saw each other was Super Bowl LVII, where it was Patrick Mahomes leading the way to a game-winning drive. He had that opportunity again at the end of this game, but the result wasn't the same.
Easily the biggest miscue from the Chiefs in this game came on second-and-10 on the team's final drive, where Marquez Valdes-Scantling found space past Eagles cornerback Bradley Roby and Mahomes laid it out there for him to make a play.

It hit his hands, and just like what Mahomes saw on too many occasions Monday night, he wasn't able to haul it in.
The play would've resulted in a touchdown, but instead the Chiefs couldn't move the ball anymore. An intentional grounding penalty on third-and-10 pushed the Chiefs back to fourth-and-25, which forced Mahomes to throw it up for Justin Watson.

Once again, the ball hit his hands, but he couldn't make the catch that would've given the Chiefs a first down.
In turn, the Eagles make a statement on the road, moving to 9-1. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are 7-3 on the year.
