Chiefs coach Andy Reid insisted his return to Philadelphia — where he coached for 14 years — was not about him.

He was wrong. His team determined to make him a winner rose to the occasion and defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 26-16 on Thursday night at Lincoln Financial Field in a game that was ragged but resourceful.

The Chiefs in raising their record to 3-0 scored just one offensive touchdown. But they got four field goals from Ryan Succop and four turnovers from their opportunistic defense including a 38-yard interception return by safety Eric Berry.

The Eagles fell to 1-2 in losing their eighth straight at home dating to last year under Reid who was replaced by former Oregon coach Chip Kelly.

The Chiefs salted the game with a 15-play 75-yard drive that consumed 8 minutes 15 seconds of the fourth quarter and ended with a 38-yard field goal by Ryan Succop his fourth field goal of the game.

The Eagles who had been their worst enemies all night with four first-half turnovers trailed 23-9 early in the fourth quarter. Quarterback Michael Vick bolted for 32-yards; connected with Jason Avant who made a juggling 20-yard catch; and LeSean McCoy sprinted 41 yards for a touchdown making it 23-16 with 11:36 to play.

The Chiefs with Smith completing four of four passes including a key 23-yarder to Donnie Avery scored their first offensive touchdown of the night on a 3-yard run by Jamaal Charles that gave them a 23-9 lead with 12:57 to play. Charles had been bottled up for much of the night but ripped off runs of 7 and 18 yards before going in for the score.

The Eagles made it 16-9 with a 29-yard field goal by Alex Henery midway through the third quarter. Henery had a chance to narrow the margin but missed a 48-yard field goal with 2:42 left in the third quarter.

The Chiefs were the beneficiaries of four Philadelphia turnovers in the first half but led just 16-6 at halftime on three Ryan Succop field goals and an interception return by safety Eric Berry.

The Chiefs took a 10-0 lead without the aid of a first down.

Former Eagle Quintin Demps returned the opening kickoff 57 yards to the Philadelphia 48 but the Chiefs managed just three yards of offense as quarterback Alex Smith misfired on both of his pass attempts.

The Chiefs took advantage of more shoddy special teams play by the Eagles when Philadelphia’s Demaris Johnson muffed Dustin Colquitt’s punt and Cyrus Gray pounced on it at the Eagles 8. Three offensive plays lost seven yards and Ryan Succop gave the Chiefs a 3-0 lead with a 33-yard field goal with 12:08 to play in .
