Jalen Hurts Score Two Touchdowns In Comeback Win Over Kansas City Chiefs

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts put in a sterling display as his team fought back from a 10-point deficit to beat reigning Super Bowl champions the Kansas City Chiefs in a thrilling 21-17 win.

The victory offers the Eagles a measure of revenge for their Super Bowl loss in February and leaves Philadelphia at a very healthy 9-1, and fans of the Lincoln Financial Field franchise keen to back their side to clinch the NFL title this season may want to take a look at this in-depth analysis of the best NFL betting sites out there.

The Chiefs looked in control after Patrick Mahomes had thrown to Justin Watson and Travis Kelce to give Kansas City a 17-7 half-time lead, a lead that Nick Sirianni’s side fought hard to reduce and then overtake.

Following the win, Hurts outlined the spirit within the Eagles camp;

“I don’t think we played clean tonight. I don’t think we played to our standard,”

“But I think the one thing you can’t quantify is the resilience that a team has, and the ability to see through things, and this team has that.”

Sirianni’s comments echoed that of his star quarterback;

“It’s the resiliency and togetherness that really stood out to me tonight,”

“and I can’t say enough about the defense. I can’t say enough about the job our defense and our defensive staff did.”

Sirianni was quick to state that the win does not make up for the 35-38 Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs;

“We weren’t thinking, ‘Hey, we’re coming up here to avenge a loss,’”

“That’s a different magnitude of game. That was for everything. So we’re just pleased to get the win tonight.”

“They ain’t giving us the rings back. I know that.” Siranni added.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes took the defeat personally and assessed his own shortcomings after the loss;

“I think offensively,”

“I’m just not where I want to be at this point in the season.” Mahomes concluded.

The two-time Super Bowl champion probably doesn’t need to beat himself too much over the result. Andy Reid’s side are still handily placed at 7-3 and will look to bounce back when they travel to Las Vegas to take on the Raiders. It was the Chiefs’ second defeat in three games, and that comes after a great run of form that saw the Chiefs win six on the bounce.

Though the Eagles had battled well to get back in front, the Chiefs still had a good chance to clinch a late win. With two minutes to play and a fourth-down converted, Mahomes threw an inch-perfect 51-yard touchdown pass that went through Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s hands.

A Justin Watson drop later on also cost Kansas a chance to get back into the lead.

Next up for the Eagles is the Buffalo Bills (6-5), and Sirianni has got to be confident his side can continue their run of four straight wins when he hosts them in NFL Game Week 12.
