Darrelle Revis' struggles in the secondary were a microcosm of the Chiefs defense as a whole on Sunday.
McCown finished with 331 yards passing and a touchdown to Matt Forte, and ran for two scores - including the victor. With a heightened focus on getting Kelce, Hunt, and wide receiver Tyreek Hill the ball, the Chiefs were able to avoid the three-and-out drives that have plagued their offense in recent weeks.
After this point, Peters left the field and originally it was believed that officials had tossed him from the game.
Despite trailing 14-0 early, the Jets clawed back thanks to a huge offensive day. And it looked like they might do just that, especially when Smith connected with Hill for a 40-yard gain on third-and-10 from their own 37.
Hali is inactive for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. The Jets failed to score on two more plays before McCown put the Jets head for good. Later, on 3rd-and-4, Kansas City gifted the Jets another first down on a defensive holding.
The Chiefs were flagged for defensive holding again on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt.
Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters lost his cool late in the fourth quarter and threw an official's yellow flag into the stands. 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.
Still, the Jets took a 21-17 lead into halftime when McCown completed another scoring drive with an 11-yard touchdown pass to running back Matt Forte, and extended their lead to 24-17 with a field goal right after halftime.
