The Kansas City Chiefs got back on track after a 1-2 start with a 42-30 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Patrick Mahomes lit up the Eagles defense to the tune of five touchdowns in what was a vintage performance for the team.
But this victory was about more than just getting to 2-2 on the season.
It was about Andy Reid making some impressive NFL history.
With his 100th win today as @Chiefs HC, Andy Reid is now the first head coach in NFL history to record 100+ wins w/ multiple teams (including playoffs; 140 wins w/ Eagles)#ChiefsKingdom

The head coach now has 100 wins with two separate franchises and was able to make that history with both of his teams involved.
That is quite the poetic justice after the Eagles let him go in 2012, only for the Chiefs to immediately bring him in with open arms.
His Time In Kansas City
Reid has been on a roll ever since arriving in Kansas City.
The Chiefs have only missed the postseason once and Reid was already doing great things before Mahomes was entered in to the equation.
Since then, it has truly been Super Bowl or bust for the Chiefs.
Reid showed up with a bit of a reputation for not being able to deliver in big games.
He led the Eagles to four consecutive NFC Championship Games, only to lose the first three.
They did win the fourth before going on to lose to the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl.
His tenure ultimately came to an end after a 4-12 finish in 2012.
And perhaps the breakup was for the best because both teams have won Super Bowls since that time.
Reid also appears to be under far less pressure in Kansas City than what he faced in Philly.
Adding To His Total
The 100-win total with both franchises counts postseason wins as well.
Reid finished his time in Philadelphia with 130 regular season wins and another 10 in the playoffs.

He now has 93 regular season wins with the Chiefs and an extra seven in the playoffs.
So in just a few months from now, he will officially have 100 regular season wins with two separate franchises.
He could easily surpass his Philadelphia totals in Kansas City if he sticks around for a few more years.
It will be hard for any coach to surpass Reid in this area because it is rare for a franchise to fire a coach with so much long-term success
This would be like if the Patriots had fired Bill Belichick a decade ago and he immediately went somewhere else.
A coach like Sean McVay, who started so young and had immediate success, may be one of the only candidates to get to 100 wins with multiple franchises.
But if he finds success in Los Angeles, it would be foolish for the Rams to let him go.
The Eagles just wanted a fresh start and it ended up working out for both sides.
That doesn’t take away from the fact of how fitting it was for Reid to make this history in his former home.NEXT: Chiefs Only Being Given Extra Motivation With Slow Start
