In a thrilling primetime showdown, the Philadelphia Eagles emerged victorious in a significant Super Bowl rematch, claiming a 21-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Notably, Eagles center Jason Kelce secured a personal triumph by finally defeating his younger brother, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, in an NFL face-off.
The Eagles orchestrated a comeback, scoring the final 14 points of the game, and sealed the victory in a late-game surge. Post-game, the Kelce brothers shared a heartfelt reunion at midfield, with Travis expressing that the win served as a belated birthday gift for his older brother, Jason, who recently celebrated his 36th birthday.
“Late birthday present to you,” Travis, 34, conveyed to Jason. “Love you, big guy.”

The Chiefs had a golden opportunity to alter the game’s outcome, but a critical drop by receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling on a deep pass from Patrick Mahomes with 1:44 remaining proved pivotal. Despite the missed opportunity, the Eagles stood firm, clinching the victory and bolstering their impressive 9-1 record, currently the best in the NFL.
This triumph carries significant weight for the Eagles, maintaining a two-game difference in the loss column between them and the Dallas Cowboys, who are set to play on Thanksgiving. The Eagles’ resilience and strategic plays secured a crucial win, further solidifying their standing in the league.
Travis Kelce, despite a standout performance with seven catches for 44 yards and one touchdown, faced a challenging stretch with his third consecutive game recording under 60 yards receiving. His fumble in the fourth quarter added a layer of complexity to the game, but the Eagles’ defense and overall team effort ultimately secured the victory in this high-stakes rematch.
