article imageNFL Scores: Chiefs win 26-16 on Reid's returns to Philly

By Larry Seely     Sep 20, 2013 in Sports
Philadelphia - New Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid probably had some mixed emotions as he returned to Philadelphia, but his new team didn't let him down as KC defeated the Eagles 26-16 on Thursday night.
Kansas City won just two games during the 2012 season and made the change to Reid and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith. The veteran quarterback and new coaching staff have turned things around quickly as the team is now 3-0 and for the moment, in front of the AFC West with Denver yet to play.
The defense was the key in the prime time game as the forced five turnovers, four in the first half and jumped to a 16-6 lead. Despite allowing over 200 yards on the ground, they made big plays when needed and kept the high-powered Eagles offense to under 400 yards on the night.
Smith was solid, completing 22 of 35 passes for 273 yards, but more importantly, no turnovers and he never forced a bad pass into coverage. Jamaal Charles had another terrific outing as the star running back had 172 total yards and a score to help lead the way.
Eagles quarterback Michael Vick wasn't as sharp, completing just 13 of 30 passes for 201 yards and a score, but three turnovers and countless misses fired passes had the Philly fans booing the veteran by the end of the contest.
LeSean McCoy was a bright spot, rushing for 158 yards and one touchdown on 20 carries, but the Chiefs secondary shut down the Eagles receivers for most of the game and dropped Philly to 1-2 for the 2013 NFL season.
