Jets avoid another fourth-quarter collapse with 38-31 victory over Chiefs

Report | Andy Reid hands play-calling duties over to Matt Nagy

The scoring slowed in the second with the Chiefs taking a three-point lead with just under three minutes to go in the half after a Harrison Butker 36-yard field goal.

Still it wasn't enough.

The New York Jets will play without first-round linebacker Darron Lee on Sunday versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

The key will be how the Chiefs fare in the next two weeks at home against Oakland and the Los Angeles Chargers - two teams once left for dead in the AFC West as Kansas City looked like a lock to win the division. After holding the New York Giants and Buffalo Bills to just 28 combined points over the team's last two games, they let up 38 points to the Jets on Sunday.

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.

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. NY converted 13 of 20 third-down plays, and the Chiefs committed eight penalties. With the defensive line unable to generate a sack on the day, much pressure was put on the Chiefs' defensive backs to make plays and force turnovers. Both came on the ground, a nine-yard rush from Elijah McGuire and a one-yard sneak by McCown to tie the game at 14 before the end of the first quarter. With the amount of zone coverage teams play against the Chiefs, they should be able to pound opponents up the middle, especially in even-count boxes.
