Helpful Chiefs guide Jets to 4th-quarter breakthrough

Adjust Comment Print

The secondary got beat for a 79-yard touchdown pass from Smith to WR Tyreek Hill.

Peters did not end up playing another meaningful snap, as the Chiefs' subsequent drive stalled in the red zone and the Jets held on to win the game, 38-31. But Kearse broke free from Steven Nelson after the catch to turn it into a big gain all the way down to the 5-yard line. Marcus Peters didn't like the call and picked up the flag and threw it into the stands.

To start with the good, quarterback Alex Smith played his best game since the teams' last-second loss to the Oakland Raiders six weeks ago. In a surprise move, the Chiefs signed CB Darrelle Revis who saw action against his old team. They converted on the second attempt to go up by a touchdown. It took him less than five minutes to throw two touchdown passes, or one more than he'd thrown in the last two games combined. The Jets came away with touchdowns (Bilal Powell run, Josh McCown QB sneak) each time.

The Chiefs regained the lead on a Harrison Butker field goal - set up when Smith was almost sacked but broke loose for a 70-yard gain - but the Jets answered before halftime.

Things were different this time around for Gang Green though as McCown was able to direct the Jets on a mammoth 14-play, 75-yard scoring drive to put them up seven with 2:20 left in the game after a successful two-point conversion.

In the fourth quarter, the Jets gave up a 40-yard touchdown to Hill.
