Refocused: New York Jets 38, Kansas City Chiefs 31

Perhaps thinking he was disqualified from the game, Peters walked off to the locker room as the Jets succeeded in tacking on the two-point conversion with a short run by Elijah McGuire. Upset with the call, Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters picked up the flag and chucked it into the stands. That positioning allowed NY (5-7) to score the game-sealing touchdown.
But Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith (336 yards, four touchdowns) misfired on fourth down to seal the game.
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. He later returned after a few minutes without his helmet and without his socks. The Chiefs led by two scores and had ran just six plays on offense. In a surprise move, the Chiefs signed CB Darrelle Revis who saw action against his old team. Explosive plays, something the offense sorely missed over the past month and a half, came in bunches. He jogged back to the field with less than two minutes remaining.
Lee, a second-year linebacker, has been a focal point in the Jets' defense and played well after struggling early in the season.
They just seemingly don't have quite enough magic this season.
Kansas City's Tyreek Hill was the star of the show for Smith and the Chiefs with his 185 receiving yards and two touchdowns, but New York's Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse had a show of their own. It was also odd that DE Muhammad Wilkerson sat the majority of the first quarter.
The Jets, meanwhile, travel to Denver to face the Broncos next week.
