Refocused: New York Jets 38, Kansas City Chiefs 31

The Chiefs hope former Jets All Pro Darrelle Revis

The Jets buried their fourth-quarter demons - at least for one week. Against Kansas City (6-6), they finally protected an advantage - but not without some drama.

The defense gave up a 22-yard touchdown reception to Travis Kelce on the Chiefs' first possession of the game and a 36-yard touchdown reception on the second.

Despite an outstanding performance from quarterback Alex Smith (366 passing yards, four touchdowns), the Kansas City Chiefs dropped their road contest with the New York Jets, 38-31. They were repeatedly gashed by Josh McCown and the Jets.

The offense entered the week having struggled when facing Cover 2, a zone defense in which cornerbacks and linebackers cover the lower-to-intermediate routes, while two safeties are responsible for guarding the deep halves of the field.

The secondary got beat for a 79-yard touchdown pass from Smith to WR Tyreek Hill. Hill finished with six catches for 185 yards. In past collapses, the Jets committed a host of dumb penalties.




Despite trailing 14-0 early, the Jets clawed back thanks to a huge offensive day.

. The Jets failed to score on two more plays before McCown put the Jets head for good.

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. Rookie running back Elijah McGuire then ran in the second attempt to extend the lead to seven points.

The Chiefs fell to 6-6 in a season that is rapidly falling off a cliff, though it should be noted that for the first time in weeks, the offense, and particularly the quarterback, did enough to win.

WR Jermaine Kearse led all receivers with 9 receptions for 157 yards.
