Thursday Night Football: Kansas City Chiefs at Philadelphia Eagles

Thursday Night Football open thread.

The New York Giants' NFC East rival, the Philadelphia Eagles, welcome back Andy Reid, their former coach of 14 years, Thursday night when they host the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday Night Football.

Game time: 8:25 p.m. ET

TV: NFL Network

Radio: Sirius XM Radio: 86

After coaching in a town that was only hard on him, Reid now gets to come back to Philadelphia as the opposing team's coach for the first time.

The Eagles game against the Chiefs could have major repercussions for the Giants, although it is still early in the season. Currently the win-less Giants are a game behind the 1-1 Eagles, and they certainly do not want to fall two games back this early into the season.

Reid has been able to get off to a fresh start in Kansas City, starting off 2-0 and coming off a close win over another NFC East rival of the Giants, the Dallas Cowboys. The game against the Eagles marks the second game in a three-game stretch for the Chiefs against the NFC East, which ends next Sunday against the Giants at Arrowhead Stadium.

Tom Coughlin and the Giants know Reid all too well, as he has beaten them eight of the last 10 times they have played.

Before Reid worries about the Giants though, his focus will be on defeating his former team tonight. He may not say he wants revenge, but players on the Chiefs such as Jamaal Charles have said they would like to win this game for a man new to their sidelines as they know how important this game is for him.

"It means a lot, so I hope we go out there and play for our coach," Charles said to ESPN's Ed Werder earlier this week. "You know what I'm saying? I know he has a lot of love for his Eagles, he worked there a lot of years and he probably wishes he was still coaching there."
