However, the victory was a special one for head coach Andy Reid as with this; he marked 100 wins with the Chiefs. Ultimately becoming the first coach in the NFL to win 100 games with two different teams.

A special win for Andy Reid

Incidentally, the irony is that the other team with whom he celebrated his first 100 wins was none other than Philadelphia Eagles itself. And because of this, it became an emotional moment for Reid as he celebrated his feat in a place he once used to call home.

Reid coached the Eagles from 1999 to 2012, so Sunday’s game was a homecoming for the 63-year-old coach. And since he happened to be in Philadelphia, he rejoiced that moment in the most Philly way possible, as he had 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.

Although this celebration was in doubt a week ago when Andy checked into a hospital in an ambulance after his loss against the Chargers. However, later he was dehydrated from the game and was just a precautionary visit with no immediate health concerns.
