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

Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters lost his cool late in the fourth quarter and threw an official's yellow flag into the stands.

Even after all of that, the Chiefs got the ball back down 38-31 with 2:15 left - still plenty of time to drive down the field and tie the game.

Jets starting linebacker Darron Lee was a surprise inactive for Sunday's game with the Chiefs.

An apparent stop of a two-point conversion of the New York Jets by the Kansas City Chiefs was negated on a holding penalty.

Who the Public Likes: Kansas City. It took him less than five minutes to throw two touchdown passes, or one more than he'd thrown in the last two games combined. The Chiefs led by two scores and had ran just six plays on offense. Kansas City is in a deep funk.

RB Matt Forte caught an 11-yard touchdown pass at the end of the first half.

The defense's inability to contain journeyman quarterback Josh McCown (26 of 36, 331 yards and a touchdown) and receivers Jermaine Kearse (nine catches, 167 yards) and Robby Anderson (eight catches, 107 yards) opened up a middling running game that averaged just 3.4 yards per carry but provided enough balance to be unsafe. Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson missed the first quarter.

McCown scored on a 1-yard sneak just before the two minute warning. The second-year player has been up and down versus the run this season and struggled in space against the pass. The Chiefs then jumped ahead when Tyreek Hill caught his second long touchdown of the day, this one 40 yards from Smith.

The Jets, meanwhile, travel to Denver to face the Broncos next week.
