Pederson has spent the last three years with the Chiefs after previously working for Andy Reid with the Eagles.
The Philadelphia Eagles are prepared to "pounce" on Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson should the Chiefs lose to the Patriots on Saturday, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports.

Pederson has been with the Chiefs for the past three years after spending the previous four with the Eagles. He served as a quality control assistant in 2009 and 2010 before being promoted to quarterbacks coach for the 2011 and 2012 seasons. He has been praised for his work with Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith over the past few seasons, particularly this year as the Chiefs moved into the top 10 in scoring offense.
Pederson played quarterback in the NFL from 1993 to 2004, mostly as a backup. He spent the 1999 season with the Eagles. After retirement, he coached high school football in Louisiana for four years before joining the Eagles in the aforementioned quality control position.
The Eagles are coming off the hiring of another offensive-minded head coach in Chip Kelly, who himself replaced an offensive-minded head coach in Andy Reid, who is the coach that hired Pederson in Philadelphia in the first place.
