KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Jalen Hurts ran for a pair of touchdowns, including a go-ahead tush-push score in the fourth quarter, and the Eagles rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat the Chiefs 21-17 in a Super Bowl rematch. Philadelphia exacted at least a little bit of revenge for its 38-35 loss in February. Its defense shut out Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ prolific in the second half. Kansas City had the ball near midfield with less than 2 minutes to go, but Marquez Valdes-Scantling had a would-be 51-yard touchdown pass slip through his hands, and the Eagles made a stand on fourth down to put the game away.
Drop-prone Chiefs get shut out in second half for third straight time
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs were shut out for the third consecutive game in a Super Bowl rematch with Philadelphia on Monday night, allowing the Eagles to rally for a 21-17 victory. The Chiefs have scored just 53 points in the second half of games this season. They led 17-7 at halftime in a cold, driving rainstorm but were unable to make it stand up as Philadelphia beat old coach Andy Reid for the first time. The Chiefs had a chance at the go-ahead score inside the final two minutes, but Marquez Valdes-Scantling had a 51-yard pass fall through his hands at the goal line.
