My pick: Andy Reid beats his protege. Chiefs 24, Eagles 20. (Season record: 1-0)
Last time met: Reid returned to Lincoln Financial Field as the Chiefs coach Sept. 19, 2013, after being fired from the Eagles and earned a 26-16 victory over his former team. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 158 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries for rookie coach Chip Kelly, who was coaching his first game at the Linc.
Eagles’ best-case scenario: Doug Pederson outcoaches his mentor as the Eagles improve to 2-0 for the second straight season. Quarterback Carson Wentz throws two touchdown passes. Running back LeGarrette Blount rushes for 100 yards. New place-kicker Jake Elliott boots three field goals. The Chiefs’ Alex Smith throws two interceptions.
Eagles’ worst-case scenario: Reid gets the best of Pederson and Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. Smith throws for 250 yards and two TDs to tight end Travis Kelce. Wentz struggles and throws three interceptions. Blount is held in check. Elliott misses two field goals.
