Patrick Mahomes threw five touchdown passes, including three to Tyreek Hill, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles 42-30 Sunday.

Andy Reid returned to Philadelphia and earned his 100th career win with the Chiefs, becoming the first coach in NFL history to win 100 games with two teams.

"The people here have been phenomenal since I got here," said Reid, who was briefly hospitalized after last week's loss to the Chargers. "My room was loaded with food so it was good to have a cheesesteak and a lot of other things. It's good to be back."

Reid’s 140 victories with the Eagles are the most in franchise history. Jalen Hurts threw for a career-high 378 yards and two TDs but Philadelphia (1-3) couldn’t keep up with Kansas City’s (2-2) high-powered offense.

The Eagles had three touchdowns negated by penalty and settled for field goals three times inside the red zone.

Mahomes was 24-of-30 for 278 yards. Hill had a monster day, catching 11 passes for 186 yards. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was solid, carrying the ball 14 times for 102 yards. He also had a receiving touchdown.

"We have to continue to build and get better," Mahomes said. "You don't win a season in September or early October. It's about getting better and better each week, and we're going to keep building and keep doing what we can to get better as a team."

The Chiefs return home to take on Buffalo (3-1) in a rematch of last season's AFC Championship. Kickoff on Sunday is set for 7:20 p.m. central. The game will be carried live on KFEQ (680, 95.3) and Q Country 92.7 FM in St. Joseph.
