Alex Smith isn't the problem in Chiefs' latest loss

Alex Smith kept rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes on the bench for at least another week by tossing four touchdown passes along with gaining 70 yards on a second-quarter scramble.

Reid confirmed an earlier ESPN report that he handed the offensive play-calling duties to coordinator Matt Nagy, and it appeared to work well early.

On the retry, the Jets converted to take a seven-point lead, while Peters got an unsportsmanlike conduct flag for his actions. NY coach Todd Bowles wisely took the points off the board with the Jets given a first-and-goal from the Chiefs' 1-yard line.

Tyreek Hill had six catches for 185 yards and two scores while zipping through the Jets' porous secondary.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Chiefs are 3-point road favorites to beat the Jets, who opened as 4-point home underdogs.

Cyclonic storm to hit Lakshadweep and southern Kerala, TN coast
The Railways have cancelled a few trains completely and others partially due to heavy rains lashing the southern parts of Kerala. Power supply was badly affected in many parts of the affected districts with KSEB trying to restore the supply till late night.

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. "I haven't played a football game in 12 months, so I think that's why coach made that call in the second half".

Smith and the Chiefs got things going early against the Jets, marching down the field 75 yards on five plays - capping the drive with a 22-yard touchdown catch by a wide-open Kelce just 2:38 in. He also had three sacks, five quarterback hits, a team-leading two forced fumbles and two pass breakups. That was Steve Bono's 76-yarder against Arizona in 1995.

It's apparently a coach's decision and something that will surely come up in Todd Bowles' press conference after the game. Defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson missed nearly the first quarter for being late to a team meeting. Whether the defense struggled because the team's offense had some quick scoring drives that gave them very little rest, it doesn't make up for the team allowing the Jets to convert on over 60% of their third downs.

Jets: at Denver next Sunday.
