Week 6: v Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles at Kansas City Chiefs
1 234Total
Eagles 0 3014 17
Chiefs 7 773 24

This game ended the longest ever gap between two NFL teams meeting – it was the first occasion the Chiefs had opposed the Eagles since October 22, 1972,[4] and only their second-ever matchup.[5] This occurred because in previous seasons when the AFC West and NFC East met each other, either the Chiefs or the Eagles (but never both) finished in fifth position and did not play the ordinary set of interconference games.[4]
