Halftime observations from New Jersey: Jets 21, Chiefs 17

Share

Kansas City defensive back Marcus Peters obviously didn't agree.

It might have been opposite day at the Meadowlands on Sunday considering it was the New York Jets that managed to pull out a victory in the fourth quarter, a 38-31 triumph over the skidding Kansas City Chiefs in Week 13. 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.

With that, we give you our PFF-exclusive takeaways from the contest for each team. Against Kansas City (6-6), they finally protected an advantage - but not without some drama.

The frustration overflowed when the Chiefs' D failed to deliver the kind of big play that also was lacking throughout the game's first 58 minutes.

That's when Peters lost his cool, grabbing the flag thrown by side judge Keith Washington and tossing it into the stands.

Peters later returned to the field without his socks. It means there is a meltdown by a player on the field, a star defender at that, which turned into something more-the abandoning of his team by Peters.

Kansas City has dropped six of its last seven after opening the season 5-0, but remains in the mix in the AFC West playoff hunt. With the Chiefs now at 6-6, and in danger of falling into a tie with the Oakland Raiders after today's game, the Chiefs are running out of time to fix both their offensive and defensive woes.
