Alex Smith hits back-to-back touchdowns to Tyreek Hill

Once again though, the Jets found an answer and took their first lead of the game with 23 seconds to go when McCown hit Matt Forte with an 11-yard touchdown pass.

The Chiefs (6-6) were keen to prove that they are still challengers for the AFC West and wasted no time getting on the scoreboard, embarking on a five-play, 75-yard opening touchdown drive in just 2:38. It was also odd that DE Muhammad Wilkerson sat the majority of the first quarter.

The Jets added a pair of field goals and the Chiefs found themselves in a 30-24 hole early in the fourth.

Unfortunately for the Chiefs, that gave the Jets the ball back on a day in which they were essentially unstoppable due to the Chiefs' proclivity for miscues.


The Chiefs lost to the Jets 38-31 and have now dropped six of their last seven games. The official then threw his hat and called a personal-foul penalty on Peters. Most notably, he had a 70-yard scramble that put the Chiefs' offense in field goal range.

Kansas City's Tyreek Hill was the star of the show for Smith and the Chiefs with his 185 receiving yards and two touchdowns, but New York's Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse had a show of their own.

Peters' frustration probably wasn't just over the penalties at the end.

After it initially appeared the refs ejected Peters from the game, the corner nonchalantly walked off the field himself. The Jets had blown leads in the fourth quarter of three of their last four losses. The Chiefs seemed to get a third-down stop after that, but a defensive holding was called. In frustration, cornerback Marcus Peters - dead serious - picked up the flag and threw into the stands.
