Eagles Fall to Reid, Chiefs [VIDEO]

Andy Reid’s coaching return to Philadelphia was a success Thursday night as he guided the Kansas City Chiefs past the Eagles 26-16 as the Eagles retire Donovan McNabb’s number.

The Chiefs’ defense forced four turnovers and sacked Michael Vick six times, 4 1/2 by linebacker Justin Houston. Kansas City (3-0) has won more games already under Reid than it did all of last season.

Kansas City, which has not had a giveaway this season, got a 38-yard interception return by Eric Berry for a touchdown, and a 3-yard scoring run by Jamaal Charles. Ryan Succop kicked four field goals.

Philadelphia (1-2) had five sacks, but was undone by sloppy tackling and an inconsistent performance by the fast-tempo offense brought in by Reid’s replacement, Chip Kelly.

Reid won 140 games and six division titles in Philadelphia.

Vick limped off the field with 1:34 to go after the final sack and turnover.

WARM WELCOME FOR REID

Andy Reid returned to a standing ovation Thursday night at the stadium where he led the Philadelphia Eagles to some of their greatest victories. Reid received a warm welcome from a sellout crowd at the Linc when he led the Kansas City Chiefs onto the field minutes before kickoff.

Some of the same fans who chanted “Fire Andy” during a game in 2011 and desperately wanted him gone last year cheered Reid, showing their appreciation for the 14 mostly successful seasons he had in Philadelphia.

Reid exchanged handshakes with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Chip Kelly during pregame warmups, and got a hug from injured Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin.

Former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb’s jersey number, 5, was retired during a halftime ceremony.
