What was Andy Reid’s record with the Eagles? Did he win the Super Bowl in Philadelphia?
The Kansas City Chiefs have been writing glorious pages in NFL recent history with coach Reid, but how did he do in Philadelphia?
The Chiefs, who will face the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, finished the regular season with a 14-3 record. They won 10 of those last 11 clashes and will be heading to the Super Bowl on a seven-game winning streak.
After a first-round bye in the playoffs, Kansas City came out on top against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Divisional Round, and later on, beat the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship Game to book a ticket to another Super Bowl.
Although players like Travis Kelce or Chris Jones are a life-insurance for the team, probably the main reason why the Chiefs are in the NFL spotlight again is QB Patrick Mahomes, who is looking to win his second MVP award after leading the league in passing yards (5,250) and passing TD (41).
But the Chiefs’ success, besides the outstanding performances by Mahomes and co., is due to the influence of coach Andy Reid, considered one of the most successful head coaches in NFL history.
What was Andy Reid’s record with the Eagles?
Although Reid is still active, his career is already remarkable. He became the first NFL head coach to record at least 100 victories with the Eagles and the Chiefs and will now be guiding the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.
Reid, who could win his second Lombardi Trophy, is the Eagles’ most successful coach ever, as nobody has coached and won as many games as he has in Philadelphia.
Did Andy Reid win the Super Bowl in Philadelphia?
Over 13 seasons, Reid led the Eagles to nine postseason appearances, five NFC Championship Games, and one Super Bowl clash, with a career record of 130-93-1 with the Birds.
However, Reid, who is fifth all-time in wins, behind Don Shula, George Halas, Bill Belichick, and Tom Landry, never won a Super Bowl in Philadelphia.
Despite turning the organization into one of the most respected ones in the league, the fact of never having won a Super Bowl took its toll on him and Reid was fired in 2013.
