Eagles vs. Chiefs Monday Night Football live updates: Score, highlights, biggest plays

A rematch nine-plus months in the making.

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”:

The Chiefs and Eagles both went three-and-out to start the game. But the offenses got things going from there.

Patrick Mahomes is 5-for-6 for 33 passing yards and had a jump-throw touchdown to Justin Watson. Isiah Pacheco and Kadarius Toney have combined for 46 rushing yards.

A Swift not named Taylor has been making an impact for the Eagles as D’Andre Swift has seven carries for 31 yards and Philadelphia’s lone score, a 4-yard touchdown. Jalen Hurts has 31 passing yards, all to DeVonta Smith.

Chiefs 7, Eagles 7: Philly evens things upafter D’Andre Swift TD

If there’s one thing the Chiefs and Eagles have made clear when they play each other, it’s that no team is going to build an insurmountable lead without the other having something to say about it. 

Philadelphia evened the score at 7 on their ensuing drive after the Chiefs opened the game’s scoring. D’Andre Swift – no relation to Taylor – ran for 33 yards on the possession, including a 4-yard touchdown rush. He scampered for 17 yards on the play prior to set up the score. DeVonta Smith had two catches to help move the Eagles down the field and offensive coordinator Brian Johnson called a quarterback run for Jalen Hurts near midfield that went for a first down. 

Philadelphia has been cautious in running Hurts on purpose as he deals with a knee injury that has clearly affected him. — Chris Bumbaca

The Chiefs offense went three-and-out on their first series, but they had better success on the second time around.

Isiah Pacheco had a 24-yard run and Rashee Rice had a 14-yard catch and run to put Kansas City in the red zone. A few plays after Rice’s reception, Patrick Mahomes bought time in the pocket and then threw a jump pass to Justin Watson in the back of the end zone for a three-yard touchdown.

Watson’s touchdown catch capped off a 10-play, 80-yard drive for Kansas City. — Tyler Dragon

Nine months ago, both the Chiefs and Eagles scored touchdowns on their opening drives in Super Bowl 57.

On Monday, the rematch started with a much different tone as both teams went three-and-out in their first drives.

The Eagles defense made the first statement of the night when, on the second play from scrimmage, Haason Reddick sacked Patrick Mahomes for a 9-yard loss. Then, a short pass to Jerick McKinnon wasn’t enough to move the chains.

After the Chiefs punted, Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia offense didn’t fare any better on its first drive. On third-and-6 after two short runs from D’Andre Swift, Trent McDuffie sacked the Hurts and forced the Eagles to boot the ball away. — Victoria Hernandez

Travis and Jason Kelce’s sense of fashion

couldn’t be more different. But the two brothers both reflected on moments from the past by wearing letterman jackets ahead of their “Monday Night Football” matchup.

A man who is always on top of the trends, Travis showed up wearing a red letterman jacket representing the Dallas Texans, the American Football League team that became the Kansas City Chiefs in 1963. The tight end completed the look with a pair of classic tan Timberland boots.

Jason arrived at Arrowhead Stadium in his own signature style: sweatpants and flip-flops. Kelce’s letterman jacket also had significance as it’s from the brothers’ early days at Cleveland Heights High School. The back featured the school’s fierce tiger mascot. — Victoria Hernandez

  • Spread: Chiefs (-2.5) 
  • Moneyline: Chiefs (-145); Eagles (+120) 
  • Over/under: 46 

USA TODAY Sports’ staff picks for this game: 

  • Lorenzo Reyes: Eagles 24, Chiefs 21 — This will be fascinating. The environment in Arrowhead will be electric and these are two legitimate Super Bowl contenders. I think the Eagles, though — right now — are more offensively complete. Kansas City’s defense might be the most underrated in the league, but I like Philly to exact a little revenge here in this rematch of Super Bowl 57. 
  • Tyler Dragon: Chiefs 24, Eagles 23 — The main event is fittingly the final game of Week 11. This Super Bowl 57 rematch is easily the game of the week. Both teams had a Week 10 bye. The Eagles are the more complete team and can win in a variety of ways. But the Chiefs are at home, Patrick Mahomes is the best player on the field, the Chiefs have a top-five defense and at some point (you’d think) Kansas City’s wide receivers are going to step up.
  • Safid Deen: Chiefs 27, Eagles 23 — Still the two best teams in the NFL, it’s truly hard to decipher which team has the edge going into this Super Bowl rematch. The Eagles are on a roll on both sides of the football with the best record, while the Chiefs may have their best defense since Patrick Mahomes became their starter. To be the best, you have to beat the best. And I’m going to roll with the defending champs at home in this one. Mahomes will find a way to outplay Jalen Hurts in crunch time to secure the win.
  • Victoria Hernandez: Eagles 27, Chiefs 24 — Get your popcorn ready. In a rematch of last year’s Super Bowl, both teams will be fresh off their bye and Kansas City will have recovered from their jet lag — except for maybe Travis Kelce who took an extra international trip to support boo Taylor Swift. But even if the Eagles are still a bit banged up, they will get revenge against a Chiefs offense that’s struggled to find quite the same prowess this season.
  • Jordan Mendoza: Chiefs 34, Eagles 30 — These two teams gave us one of the highest-scoring Super Bowls the last time they faced off. With both teams eager to prove themselves as the top Super Bowl favorite, expect the offenses to once again go crazy in the rematch. You could go either way, but the crowd at Arrowhead Stadium will make the difference in this one. Karma might be the guy on the Chiefs leading his team to a win.

This game has more immediate playoff implications for the Chiefs (7-2), who would surrender the No. 1 overall spot in the AFC standings to the Baltimore Ravens (8-3) with a loss. Kansas City currently has the inside edge for home-field advantage and potentially hosting a sixth consecutive conference championship game. 

Win or lose, the Eagles (8-1) will retain the top spot in the NFC as their bid to secure the home field for the second straight season continues. A loss would tie Philadelphia with the Detroit Lions (8-2), but Detroit’s inferior record in conference games would keep them in the No. 2 slot. Still, with the Bills, 49ers, hard-charging Cowboys and Seahawks set to follow on the schedule, Philly can hardly afford a stumble. — Nate Davis

Tonight’s game will be the ninth rematch of a Super Bowl to occur in the subsequent season. The teams that won the Super Bowl are 6-2 in Round 2, including four victories in a row. Most recently, the New England Patriots defeated the Atlanta Falcons in the 2017 season following their historic overtime comeback from a 28-3 deficit in Super Bowl 51. In the past six rematches, six teams went on to advance to that season’s Super Bowl, including the 2017 Patriots … who lost to Jason Kelce’s Eagles. — Nate Davis

Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert suffered a forearm injury during Philadelphia’s win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 9, and will miss Monday night’s Super Bowl 57 rematch. In his absence, the Eagles will count on a committee of tight ends to help make up for the loss of Goedert’s production. Jack Stoll, Albert Okwuegbunam and Grant Calcaterra will be called on to fill Goedert’s shoes. Recently signed wide receiver Julio Jones also could play a larger role in the Eagles offense.

Eagles’ inactive players:

  • QB Tanner McKee (third QB)
  • RB Rashaad Penny
  • DT Moro Ojomo
  • OG Sua Opeta
  • TE Dallas Goedert
  • DE Derek Barnett

Chiefs’ inactive players:

  • WR Richie James
  • DE BJ Thompson
  • OL Mike Caliendo
  • DT Neil Farrell
  • DE Malik Herring

Monday night’s game will be Eagles center Jason Kelce’s fifth attempt to beat the Chiefs, the five-time All-Pro is currently 0-4 against the team coached by Andy Reid – the man who drafted Kelce in Philadelphia in 2011. Of course, Kelce also badly wants to beat his younger brother Travis, the reigning champs’ star tight end. Travis Kelce has never known defeat against his big bro in the NFL but was inactive for the 2013 matchup, which occurred during his rookie season. — Nate Davis

Reid is the only coach in NFL history to hold regular-season wins record for two teams (Eagles and Chiefs). Reid won 130 games in 14 seasons in Philadelphia. He’s currently won 124 games as the Chiefs head coach. — Tyler Dragon

With a win Monday night, Andy Reid will break a tie with Hank Stram by winning his 125th regular-season game with the Kansas City Chiefs – which would be the most in franchise history. When postseason is factored in, Reid is the king of K.C. HCs, his overall record 136-54, including titles in 2019 and 2022. Of course, Reid is also the winningest coach in Eagles history, 140-102-1, including a loss in Super Bowl 39.

Reid’s 4-0 record against Philadelphia, including February’s 38-35 win in Super Bowl 57, has come be a collective score of 133-101. Reid is the only coach in NFL history to notch the most wins for two separate franchises and the lone one to win at least 100 games for multiple clubs. He’s also one of seven NFL coaches to take two organizations to Super Sunday. — Nate Davis

For Taylor Swift, these days, “Karma” is “the guy on the (Kansas City) Chiefs.”

That makes some Philadelphia Eagles fans wish for a dose of lower-case, not-the-song-title karma Monday night when the Chiefs host the Eagles in a rematch of Super Bowl 57. It’s also a test of the pop star’s allegiances – and people, especially Eagles fans, are paying attention. — Chris Bumbaca

While everyone agrees it’s great that Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce are dating, both Chiefs and Eagles fans had mixed reactions regarding the hype around the relationship as they tailgated ahead of “Monday Night Football.”

Swift was unable to attend the game on Monday because of a makeup show in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Kelce attended one of Swift’s concerts in Buenos Aires, Argentina, this month. — Bryan West

Patrick Mahomes has the highest quarterback winning percentage in the NFL since 1970 (for a quarterback with a minimum of 25 starts). The Chiefs’ star quarterback has a 71-18 career record, resulting in a .798 winning percentage.

Jalen Hurts has the fifth highest winning percentage. The Eagles’ star quarterback has a 31-12 career record. His winning percentage is .721.

The Chiefs (7-2) and Eagles (8-1) are both on top of their respective conferences. Superb quarterback play is a major reason why. — Tyler Dragon
