They extended that to 30-24 on a Chandler Catanzaro field goal with 11:23 remaining. Revis, who played eight years over two stints with the Jets, started for the Chiefs, but spent the second half on the sideline.

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. Kansas City took a quick 14-0 lead in the first quarter, and the slumping team's defense couldn't do anything about it.

And while the Chiefs' offense broke out of its three-game stretch of ineffectiveness - more on that later - the defense, which played well enough to win in recent losses to the Giants (12-9) and Bills (16-10), slumped back to its old ways. He connected with his two most prominent targets, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, for 2 touchdowns apiece.

Peters' frustration probably wasn't just over the penalties at the end. The Chiefs seemed to get a third-down stop after that, but a defensive holding was called.

McCown's pass on the 2-point conversion was incomplete, but Nelson was called for holding.

That part would have been a lot worse had the Chiefs tied the game.

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

But he wasn't officially ejected, even though he walked off the field to the locker room, and then had to come back to the field without any socks on his feet.

The Jets were forced to kick a field goal from the 7-yard line after Bilal Powell was dropped short of the end zone.
