Jamaal Charles wants to make sure that Andy Reid's return to Philadelphia is a triumphant one.

Thursday's game between the Chiefs and Eagles figures to be an emotional night for Reid who is in his first year with Kansas City following 14 seasons in Philadelphia.

Reid who has coached the Chiefs to a 2-0 start this season has maintained a positive stance regarding his relationship with the Eagles who fired him after going 4-12 last season and replaced him with former Oregon coach Chip Kelly.

But Charles acknowledged to ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder that Thursday night's game will be personal for Reid.

"It means a lot so I hope we go out there and play for our coach" Charles told Werder following Sunday's victory over the Dallas Cowboys. "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."

The Eagles have started 1-1 under Kelly who has implemented a fast-paced offense that has averaged 477 yards per game -- the NFL's second-highest mark.
