Kansas City Chiefs HC Andy Reid has been chasing a unique piece of NFL history the past three weeks, something never achieved by another coach in the illustrious history of the league.

After two consecutive losses, the Chiefs’ head coach finally got his team back in the win column and it comes against a Philadelphia Eagles team that he spent 14 years coaching. Reid is now 3-0 against the Eagles during his tenure in Kansas City. Ironically enough, his former team also plays a large part in the history made by Reid today.

The victory in Philadelphia marked Reid’s 100th career win with Kansas City (including playoffs) since joining the team as head coach back in 2013. It also made him the only coach in NFL history to win 100 games with two separate NFL teams.

Reid will undoubtedly downplay the achievement, but winning 100 games with two separate franchises is no easy feat. It’s remarkable that he’s been able to stay innovative and successful after 356 regular season games over 23 years as an NFL head coach. He has been able to stay true to his roots as a teacher, but also learn and evolve with the game as it’s changed over the last two decades.

Don’t expect the Chiefs’ head coach to do much celebrating after this win. He knows that he has a lot to correct for his team if they’re to win in a big-time AFC showdown against the Buffalo Bills in Week 5.
