Chiefs unravel late vs. Jets as nosedive accelerates

But Kansas City's Bennie Logan was called for a personal foul for hitting long snapper Thomas Hennessy on the play. Kansas City took a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and the slumping team's defense couldn't do anything about it. Three plays later, McCown kept the ball and shoved his way into the end zone.

The Chiefs forced an incompletion on the two-point conversion, but their commitment to bad football and untimely penalties continued as Nelson was whistled for a hold that nullified the stop and gave the Jets another crack at it. But Peters left the field, presumably because he figured his flag toss earned an ejection. Elijah McGuire ran it in moments later to convert the 2-point play and make it 38-31.

A pair of penalties - one on a fourth-down field goal attempt and another on a third-down incompletion - gifted the Jets first downs inside the Chiefs' 5-yard line. Revis, who played eight years over two stints with the Jets, started for the Chiefs, but spent the second half on the sideline.

In the Chiefs' previous three games, all losses, Alex Smith's passer rating (79.4) was on par with struggling quarterbacks like the Giants' Eli Manning and Jacksonville's Blake Bortles.

Marcus Peters was just flagged for throwing a flag into the stands.

RB Bilal Powell and QB Josh McCown both scored on 1-yard runs in the first quarter. The offense focused on getting tight end Travis Kelce into mismatches in coverage, and Smith was able to connect with him on two touchdown passes of 22 and 36 yards.

But three plays later, the Chiefs found themselves in a fourth-and-6 at the Jets' 19.
