Tush Push was the go-ahead touchdown for the Eagles in a victory over the Chiefs

The Philadelphia Eagles rallied from a 10-point halftime deficit to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 21-17 in a Super Bowl rematch Monday night. It was a less spectacular passing game for Jalen Hurts. He was sacked five times but ran for a pair of touchdowns, including a go-ahead tush-push score in the fourth quarter.

The Eagle's defense was impressive tonight especially in the second half keeping Pat Mahomes and the Chiefs out of the end zone.

In the end, Mahomes was held to just 177 yards passing with two touchdowns and an interception in the end zone. Isiah Pacheco added 89 yards rushing for the Chiefs, but their failure to overcome two red-zone turnovers and a slew of penalties prevented them from escaping with a victory.

Despite the fact that Hurts only threw for 150 yards and threw a pick, he made the plays in the second half that Mahomes could not. In addition, D'Andre Swift, who ran for 76 yards and a touchdown, and DeVonta Smith, who caught six passes for 99 yards, provided him with some assistance.
