The Philadelphia Eagles (8-1) are set to face the defending champions, the Kansas City Chiefs (7-2), on Monday night following a week off for both teams.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid boasts an impressive record of 31-6 after a bye, including playoffs, spanning his 14 seasons in Philadelphia. A victory in this game would make him the first head coach to lead two franchises in wins.

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are looking to avenge their 38-35 loss to two-time NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl. Despite not performing up to their standard, the Eagles have been the league’s most consistent team.

The Chiefs, currently 2 1/2-point favorites according to FanDuel Sportsbook, have been winning primarily due to a dominant defense while waiting for Mahomes and the offense to find their rhythm. Pro Picks, however, senses a potential upset with a prediction of Eagles winning 29-27.
