Final score: Chiefs even record with 42-30 win over Eagles

Kansas City now stands 2-2 after a 12-point road victory.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Neither the Philadelphia Eagles or Kansas City Chiefs punted during Sunday’s game — and the Chiefs didn’t stop an Eagles drive for no points until there was 4:26 left in the game. Leading 35-23, all they had to do was hold onto the ball to win the game. Instead, head coach Andy Reid elected to call a time out, dialing up a home run shot to Tyreek Hill that went 44 yards for a touchdown. Philadelphia managed another touchdown after the two-minute warning, but the Chiefs left Philadelphia with a 42-30 victory.

The Eagles received the opening kickoff. After a touchback, Philidelphia quarterback Jalen Hurts came out aggressively, pushing the ball downfield — highlighted by a 22-yard completion down the seam to rookie wide receiver DeVonta Smith. In the end, the Chiefs’ defense managed to firm up and hold the Eagles to a 29-yard field goal, putting the Eagles ahead 0-3.

On the ensuing drive, Kansas City focused on getting running back Clyde-Edward-Helaire going early, which freed up Tyreek Hill on a 37-yard slant across the middle that was initially called a touchdown. After reviewing the play, it was ruled that Hill was down at the 1-yard line. Kansas City finished off the drive, going back to Edwards-Helaire on a 1-yard shovel pass for a touchdown — giving the Chiefs a 7-3 lead

Philidelphia converted four consecutive first downs on their next drive. After back-to-back incomplete passes, the Eagles decided to go for it on fourth-and-2 — converting to Kenneth Gainwell for a 12-yard gain. Two plays later Jalen Hurts went back to Gainwell for a 15-yard gain — a play where it initially appeared that he had fumbled the ball. Ben Neimann jumped on the ball, but the referee ruled that Gainwell was down by contact. Kansas City neglected to challenge the ruling on the field. The replay showed that Gainwell did, in fact, fumble the ball. On the very next play, Hurts found Dallas Goedert for a three-yard touchdown pass.

Down 7-10, Byron Pringle put the ball on the ground on the following kickoff. But luckily, Jerick McKinnon was there to jump on it. After back-to-back penalties for illegal formation and delay of game, Patrick Mahomes scrambled for 13 yards on third-and-12 to pick up the first down. Spreading the ball around to five different receivers, Mahomes drove the Chiefs down the field, cashing in with a six-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill.

Down 14-10, the Eagles began finding success behind the legs of quarterback Jalen Hurts. On second-and-4 from the Chiefs 44-yard line, Hurts made an ill-advised throw that was initially ruled an interception by Deandre Baker — but a review showed the ball hit the ground, so the interception was overturned. Three plays later, it appeared that Hurts found Goedert for a six-yard touchdown, but both teams committed penalties on the play. When the dust settled, the Chiefs' defense stood strong, holding the Eagles to a field goal, narrowing the score to 14-13 Chiefs.

The Chiefs' last drive of the half started with three rushes of over 15 yards. At the two-minute warning, the Chiefs were at the 10-yard line, threatening to score another touchdown. After a roughing the passer call on Philidelphia’s Derek Barnett gave the Chiefs a fresh set of downs from the 3-yard line, Mahomes found Jody Fortson on a touchdown pass up the gut extending their lead to 21-13.

Eagles kick returner J.J. Arcega-Whiteside muffed the following kickoff but fell on the fumble. Starting from their 11-yard line, Hurts went to his go-to receiver DaVonte Smith on the first three plays of the drive. Two plays later Chiefs cornerback La’Jarius Sneed crashed in on a cornerback blitz, strip-sacking Hurts to end the half.

The Chiefs received the opening kick in the third quarter. After a sack and a scramble, Mahomes was hit on a throw intended for tight end Travis Kelce — which was intercepted by Eagles linebacker Eric Wilson.

Taking the ball over at the Chiefs' 49-yard line, Hurts and company quickly moved the ball down the field to inside the Chiefs’ 10-yard line. Kansas City’s defense was stout against the pass in the red zone, forcing a 24-yard Philidelphia field-goal attempt — but Chiefs cornerback Chris Lammons was offsides on the play, giving Philidelphia second life on the drive.

On fourth-and-3, from the Kansas City 3-yard line, the Eagles elected to go for it — but wide receiver Arcega-Whiteside committed offensive pass interference on the play, backing the Eagles up to the Kansas City 13-yard line. Facing fourth-and-13, Philidelphia elected to kick the field goal and made it.

Kansas City methodically moved the ball down the field on the subsequent drive, going 75 yards down the field on 11 plays, setting up a 1-yard touchdown run by Darrel Williams, extending the Chiefs lead to 28-16.

As the fourth quarter began, Hurts scrambled outside of the pocket to throw the ball away. As he was going out of bounds, Alex Okafor hit Hurts late, drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that gave the Eagles a fresh set of downs. Three plays later, Gainwell took the handoff up the middle for a 7-yard touchdown, closing the gap to 28-23 Chiefs.

With 9:57 left in the fourth quarter — facing an important third-and-6 from midfield — Philidelphia defensive end Josh Sweat committed a neutral zone infraction that set up a 5-yard pass to Hill to keep the drive alive. With a fresh set of downs, Mahomes found Hill on a 12-yard touchdown pass across the middle.

The Eagles got the ball back with 6:44 remaining, and had a 34-yard touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith called back for illegal touching; he went out of bounds and was the first to touch the ball upon re-entering the field of play. On fourth-and-11 from the Kansas City 35-yard line, Siriani elected to go for it — but Hurts threw an incomplete pass that gave Kansas City its first defensive stop of the day.
