PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Big Red is back in Philly, wearing unfamiliar red colors and standing on the opposite sideline.
Andy Reid returned to a standing ovation Thursday night at the stadium where he led the Philadelphia Eagles to some of their greatest victories. Reid received a warm welcome from a sellout crowd at the Linc when he led the Kansas City Chiefs onto the field minutes before kickoff.
Some of the same fans who chanted ``Fire Andy'' during a game in 2011 and desperately wanted him gone last year cheered Reid, showing their appreciation for the 14 mostly successful seasons he had in Philadelphia.
Reid exchanged handshakes with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and coach Chip Kelly during pregame warmups, and got a hug from injured Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin.
