Chiefs' maddening loss to Jets a metaphor for Kansas City's collapse

  • The Chiefs hope former Jets All Pro Darrelle Revis

After holding the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills to just 28 combined points over the team's last two games, they let up 38 points to the Jets on Sunday. You're down there and competing and we've had a few of those games where we've had that.

Time and again, the Chiefs made Jets quarterback Josh McCown look like Joe Namath in his prime.

Kearse was everywhere on Sunday, ripping off 79 yards in the first half before adding another 78 after halftime. He connected with his two most prominent targets, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, for 2 touchdowns apiece.

Lee, a second-year linebacker, has been a focal point in the Jets' defense and played well after struggling early in the season. Revis has remained in the game, even though he's missed a few open-field tackles.

The Jets carried a 27-24 lead into the fourth quarter. Whether it was the turning over of offensive play calling duties from head coach Andy Reid to coordinator Matt Nagy, or simply a case of improved confidence, Smith generated some big offensive plays.

Hill had put the Chiefs ahead 31-30 on a 40-yard touchdown catch. He also had three sacks, five quarterback hits, a team-leading two forced fumbles and two pass breakups.

It's apparently a coach's decision and something that will surely come up in Todd Bowles' press conference after the game.

Rookie Elijah McGuire ran in the conversion to provide the final margin, and the Chiefs couldn't convert on fourth down in Jets territory on their last gasp attempt for a touchdown.
