We get a Super Bowl rematch and an opportunity to scout the Las Vegas Raiders' next opponent on Monday Night Football tonight as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kickoff is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. PT and the game will air on ESPN. Also, DraftKings Sportsbook is offering lines and prop bets for tonight’s game as the spread, total and moneylines are listed below.

  • Spread: KC -2.5
  • O/U: 45.5
  • KC ML: -142
  • PHI ML: +120

For the injury report, wide receiver and return specialist Richie James (knee) is on injured reserve but could return tonight as he’s questionable and was activated from IR, according to the NFL’s transaction report. However, linebacker Nick Bolton (wrist) remains on IR after having surgery about a month ago. Everyone else that was listed on Kansas City’s report was a full participant in practice all week and should be good to go for the game.

The Eagles are also fairly healthy as tight end Dallas Goedert (forearm) is the only player on the active roster who has been ruled out, which is expected as Goedert broke his arm a couple of weeks ago. Also, Philadelphia placed linebacker Nakobe Dean (foot) on injured reserve this week so, of course, he won’t be playing tonight, either. In other Eagles’ IR news, guard Cam Jurgens (foot) will be active tonight for the first time since Week 4, but safety Justin Evans (knee) will remain sidelined and on IR for the game.

As for the weather, it could be a factor tonight as it’s supposed to be about 44 degrees with a 75 percent chance of rain in Kansas City around game time, according to Rotowire.
