Andy Reid's return only part of Chiefs-Eagles history

There is not a ton of history between these two, except for the whole Andy Reid thing.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles play Thursday night, with the obvious headline being the return of Andy Reid to his old stomping grounds.

Reid coached the Eagles from 1999-2013, earning seven NFC East titles, five NFC Championship game appearances and a Super Bowl berth in 2004. Reid is the all-time winningest coach in Eagles history with 130 victories in the regular season.

The Chiefs have only played Philadelphia six times in franchise history, sporting a 2-4 mark including a 1-1 record on the road. The last time Kansas City beat Philadelphia was in 1998, scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter to win 24-21. Incredibly, these teams didn't face each other once between Oct. 1972 and Oct. 1992.

Current Chiefs' Quintin Demps, Chad Hall and Akeem Jordan are all former Eagles. Other notables who played for both teams include Shawn Barber, Ron Jaworski and Andy Studebaker. More here. Feel free to mention any others below.
