The Eagles were able to tie the game at 7-7 in the first 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.
The Eagles quickly turned things around after a rough start with a three-and-out on their first possession. They scored a 75-yard touchdown on their second possession, thanks to key contributions from D’Andre Swift and Jalen Hurts. Swift gained 33 yards on five carries, while Hurts added a 6-yard run to the drive. DeVonta Smith also caught two of Hurts’ completions for 31 yards.
In contrast, the Chiefs struggled in the first quarter with only 70 yards of offense compared to the Eagles’ 67 yards. Despite this, they remained competitive and continued to fight for every yard on the field.
