The Eagles managed to tie the game at 7-7 in the second quarter with a touchdown run by D’Andre Swift. However, this was despite a holding penalty that went uncalled. Chiefs safety Mike Edwards was held by Olamide Zakeaus during the play, causing frustration for the Chiefs and their coach, Andy Reid.
The Eagles had a strong start to the game, with a 75-yard drive on their first possession. Despite facing no third downs on this drive, they were able to gain momentum thanks to key contributions from players such as D’Andre Swift and Jalen Hurts. Swift gained 33 yards on five carries, while Hurts added a 6-yard run and DeVonta Smith caught two of Hurts’ completions for 31 yards.
Despite an initial advantage in offense, with 70 yards compared to the Eagles’ 67 in the first quarter, the game remained competitive as both teams continued to battle for victory.
