Philadelphia Eagles bite back in Super Bowl rematch

Two touchdowns from Jalen Hurts helped Philadelphia Eagles turn around a 10 point deficit to defeat Kansas City Chiefs 21-17.

The Chiefs, who won when these two sides met in the Super Bowl in February, opened up a 10 point lead at half time, leading 17-7.

Quarterback Patrick Mahomes found Justin Watson and Travis Kelce with a pair of touchdown passes, either side of a four-yard touchdown run from D'Andre Swift for the Eagles.

Hurts cut that gap in the third quarter with the first of his touchdown runs as the Chiefs offence struggled to find much momentum.

Kelce then fumbled near the line as the Chiefs pushed to extend their lead and Hurts, who threw for just 150 yards, made them pay with his second running touchdown.

The Chiefs still had a chance in the final moments, but Mahomes went through the hands of Marquez Valdes-Scantling to deny them the winning score.

The Eagles are top of NFC West, with their ninth win out of 10 this season, while the Chiefs remain top of AFC West despite defeat to the Eagles.
