PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -

Andy Reid's coaching return to Philadelphia was a success Thursday night as he guided the Kansas City Chiefs past the Eagles 26-16.

The Chiefs' defense forced four turnovers and sacked Michael Vick five times, 3 1/2 by linebacker Justin Houston. Kansas City (3-0) has won more games already under Reid than it did all of last season.

Kansas City, which has not had a giveaway this season, got a 38-yard interception return by Eric Berry for a touchdown, and a 3-yard scoring run by Jamaal Charles. Ryan Succop kicked four field goals.

Philadelphia (1-2) had five sacks, but was undone by sloppy tackling and an inconsistent performance by the fast-tempo offense brought in by Reid's replacement, Chip Kelly.

Reid won 140 games and six division titles in Philadelphia.

Vick limped off the field with 1:34 to go after the final sack and turnover.
