Josh McCown scored the game-winning touchdown, a one-yard rush, with 2:20 left to play to lift NY (5-7) to its first victory since November 2 against the Buffalo Bills. But their free-fall continued, and the New York Jets are on the rebound.

The Jets beat the Chiefs 38-31 at MetLife Stadium, and now the pressure on K.C. probably weighs a ton. In a shootout against the Jets they needed just a little bit more magic.

After two running plays, McCown threw incomplete - but Steven Nelson was penalized for defensive holding, making it first-and-goal from the 2.

But the fun wasn't over. With a heightened focus on getting Kelce, Hunt, and wide receiver Tyreek Hill the ball, the Chiefs were able to avoid the three-and-out drives that have plagued their offense in recent weeks. To show his disgust, he picked up the flag and threw it into the stands.

Sans socks and leg pads, Peters ultimately emerged from the locker room in time to watch Kansas City's comeback attempt fall short at the Jets' 19-yard line with 45 seconds remaining.

It was McCown that delivered the go-ahead score, punching in his second one-yard touchdown rush of the day.

The New York Jets will play without first-round linebacker Darron Lee on Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Whether it was the turning over of offensive play calling duties from head coach Andy Reid to coordinator Matt Nagy, or simply a case of improved confidence, Smith generated some big offensive plays. The always-vivacious Kelce blew kisses to the crowd to celebrate.

Kelce accounted for 54 of those yards on two catches, the latter coming in the form of a 22-yard scoring reception from Smith. On Sunday, it was the Chiefs who lost their composure down the stretch.
