The Eagles scored a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7 in the second quarter, despite a holding penalty that went uncalled. D’Andre Swift made a 3-yard touchdown run, with Olamide Zaccheaus holding Chiefs safety Mike Edwards during the play. This sparked frustration from the Chiefs and their coach, Andy Reid, who sought an explanation during a timeout.
After a rough start with a three-and-out on their first possession, the Eagles quickly turned things around with a 75-yard scoring drive. They didn’t face any third downs during this drive, and D’Andre Swift played a key role by gaining 33 yards on five carries. Jalen Hurts also contributed with a 6-yard run, while DeVonta Smith caught two of Hurts’ completions for 31 yards.
In the first quarter, the Chiefs had 70 yards of offense while the Eagles had 67, making for a competitive start to the game.
