PHILADELPHIA (AP) — This was one time Andy Reid didn’t mind being a big target.
The man in the bull’s-eye so often when he coached in Philadelphia was easy for Chiefs receiver Donnie Avery to find.
At the end of Kansas City’s 26-16 victory over the Eagles in Reid’s homecoming Thursday night, Avery gave Reid a Gatorade shower.
Reid already looked strange decked in all red on the visitors’ sideline.
“Yeah, it was different,” Reid said. “I was on the opposite side of the field than I normally am at. But I can’t tell you that I was caught up in that part of it.”
The result was similar to what he gave Philadelphia in his 14 years in charge of the Eagles, thanks to a dynamic Chiefs defense that forced five turnovers and sacked a harried Michael Vick five times. Vick even limped off after a late fumble — he said his ankle got rolled, but he was fine — but stayed around to hug Reid following the final play.
“It was great to see the players that are here,” Reid admitted. “I had a chance to talk to them after the game.”
Kansas City, which has not had a giveaway in opening 3-0, has won one more game already than it did in 2012 — after which it hired Reid days after he was fired on the heels of Philly’s 4-12 finish.
