But even when the Jets switched in the second half to Cover 2, Kansas City still made big plays. 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. That positioning allowed NY (5-7) to score the game-sealing touchdown.
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. On the first play of their next drive, Smith aired out a deep throw to Hill, who ran under it for a 79-yard touchdown that tied the game.
Meanwhile, Darrelle Revis is active and will play for the Chiefs against the Jets. Kansas City took a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and the slumping team's defense couldn't do anything about it.
Revis last played on January 1 here at MetLife Stadium in his final game with the Jets.
Late in the game Bennie Logan was penalized for hitting the snapper on a field goal, giving the Jets a fresh set of downs inside the 10-yard line.
The Chiefs were flagged for defensive holding again on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt.
Peters' frustration probably wasn't just over the penalties at the end.
Making matters even more odd is that Peters walked off the field in disgust despite not actually being ejected.
But three plays later, the Chiefs found themselves in a fourth-and-6 at the Jets' 19.
The 4-7 Jets continued their home stand at MetLife Stadium against the 6-5 Kansas City Chiefs.
