Kansas city Chiefs beats Philadelphia Eagles


The Eagles and Chiefs played an instant classic in February, with Kansas City clipping Philadelphia’s wings in Super Bowl 57. Now, the two contenders meet again in a primetime matchup on “Monday Night Football.”

While a decent of chunk of headlines surrounding the Chiefs in recent months has been a romance between No. 87 on the field and No. 1 on most iTunes charts, Kansas City has jumped out to a 7-2 record, but maybe a bit differently than they usually do. The defense has helped push the Chiefs out to a lead in the AFC West, while the offense has shown signs of life, but remains something of a work in progress.

On the other sideline, the Eagles have made a season of close calls. Of Philly’s eight wins, five have come by one score, making for an 8-1 record that may not be all that it seems. Still, the Eagles had a statement win of sorts in Week 9 vs. the Dallas Cowboys, downing their division rival and proving they’re still soaring above the rest in the NFC.

USA TODAY Sports will provide updates for the Week 11 Eagles-Chiefs Super Bowl 57 rematch on “Monday Night Football”:

Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts is wearing a protective sleeve over his left knee for the game against the Chiefs.

Sideline reporter Laura Rutledge said that Hurts did not wear the knee brace during practice leading up to the Monday night matchup, but that the quarterback wore it during the game for “extra protection and precaution.”

The quarterback was injured earlier this season and wore a knee brace in the second half of the Week 7 win over the Miami Dolphins. He hasn’t missed any time, but was visibly struggling in a Week 9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Philadelphia had their bye last week, which helped Hurts heal and allowed him to practice without a brace.

“I think time is a sign of progress,” Hurts said, per NBC Sports Philadelphia. “… The bye week came at a great time. We all took advantage of that or tried to take advantage of that time off. Everything is trending forward.” — Victoria Hernandez
