Chiefs vs. Jets: Marcus Peters leaves game in fourth quarter

04 December 2017

He connected with his two most prominent targets, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, for 2 touchdowns apiece.

McCown and the Gang Green offense responded to Hill's score with a 76-yard drive, capped off by the 38-year-old quarterback's second rushing touchdown of the day. But Smith was then incomplete on three straight passes.

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 the second half, Revis did not see the field at all.

The improvement may stem from Chiefs coach Andy Reid ceding his play-calling responsibilities to offensive coordinator Matt Nagy. ESPN's analytics department gives Kansas City a 66 percent chance of doing so despite its ongoing struggles.

The Jets were forced to kick a field goal from the 7-yard line after Bilal Powell was dropped short of the end zone. Defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson missed nearly the first quarter for being late to a team meeting. It was a coach's decision to sit the 2016 No. 20 overall pick.

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. Zach Fulton replaced him and Bryan Witzmann took over Fulton's spot at left guard.
