Chiefs unravel late vs. Jets as nosedive accelerates

His first pass was a completion to receiver Demarcus Robinson for 10 yards, his second was a completion to Kelce for 32 yards, and after another completion to receiver Tyreek Hill for 11 yards, Smith connected with Kelce again for a 22-yard touchdown throw.

Darrelle Revis' struggles in the secondary were a microcosm of the Chiefs defense as a whole on Sunday. "Most guys I know, they have their flag forever".

Josh McCown scored the game-winning touchdown, a one-yard rush, with 2:20 left to play to lift NY (5-7) to its first victory since November 2 against the Buffalo Bills.

Despite trailing 14-0 early, the Jets clawed back thanks to a huge offensive day. That gave the Jets the ball at the 1 with a new set of downs.

The Jets, though, for the most part in the first half played Cover 1 defense, which utilizes man-to-man coverage underneath, with one safety roaming deep in the center of the defensive backfield.

But McCown and the Jets punched right back, scoring a pair of touchdowns of their own.

The Chiefs kept battling, and even seemed to get off the field on third-and-goal from the 4 when Frank Zombo forced an incompletion by hitting McCown.

You can understand why Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters presumably thought he was ejected on Sunday.

But the sight of quarterback Alex Smith, snapping his chin strap loose and slumping his head after a failed comeback attempt only reinforced that this was yet another disappointment in a troubling middle portion of the season. Jermaine Kearse had nine catches for 157 yards and Robby Anderson caught eight passes for 107 yards as the Jets dominated in time of possession, but still had to hold their breath in the end. McCown completed 26 of 36 passes for 331 yards and a touchdown, to go along with 21 yards rushing and his two touchdowns.
