Chiefs’ head coach and former Philadelphia Eagles head coach, Andy Reid is preparing for his three-week reunion with the NFC East as the new Kansas City Chiefs’ Head Coach.
Reid will host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and head back to Philadelphia for a Thursday night game, before returning home to host the Giants.
After beating the Jaguars in his season opener, Reid makes his home opener debut this Sunday against the familiar Dallas Cowboys. Reid went 17-12 including postseason against the Cowboys, and 51-37 against the Cowboys, Giants and Redskins, in regular and postseason play during his 14 years with the Eagles.
And only 4 days following Reid’s first home game as Chiefs’ head coach, he will return to Philadelphia, not only to play his former team, but also recognize Philadelphia’s most revered player, Donavan McNabb.

“There’s a lot of emphasis put on the first game within the league,” Reid said. “I keep in perspective that it’s one out of 16 games and hopefully more that you have an opportunity to play, so I understand that. On the other hand, I’ll tell you that you work your tail off to win every game, and that’s what you do. So every victory you get, you’re going to cherish and enjoy it.”
It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs play against Reid’s longtime rivals, and how the next three weeks will prepare him for his meeting with Redskins in December.
