Following the Chiefs’ 42-30 win over the Eagles on Sunday, Andy Reid officially became the first coach in NFL history to reach 100 wins with two different franchises.
The irony of the situation is that Reid reached this milestone by beating the other team he had 100 wins with. Reid coached the Eagles from 1999-2012, so Sunday’s game was a homecoming for the tenured coach.
Since the team was in Philadelphia, Reid chose to celebrate in the most Philly way by having a cheesesteak for dinner: “My room was filled with food. It was good to have a cheesesteak. …It’s good to be back,” Reid said, via ESPN.
A week ago, this celebration was in doubt after Reid was taken in an ambulance after the Chiefs’ Sunday loss against the Chargers. Reid was later found to be dehydrated from the game with no immediate health concerns. It was a “precautionary” visit, according to Yahoo! Sports.
During his post-game interview on Sunday, Reid was emotional while discussing his historic win, especially because it was in a place he used to call home.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire was asked about the preparation the team took coming into this week so they could get Reid’s 100th win. He said the team just wanted a win in general, but because they won it for Reid, it made the win even more special, via ESPN.
The locker room had a celebration for Reid post-game, where Reid supposedly got “fired up.”
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes talked about how grateful he is for Reid: “No offense to Philly, but I’m glad they let him go,” Mahomes said, via ESPN.
Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt visited the locker room after the game to present Reid with a football honoring his 100th win. The football shows a design of the game details, including both of the Chiefs and Eagles helmets.
Reid finished his Eagles career with 140 wins.
