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

  • Jets make Darron Lee inactive for game against Chiefs

Josh McCown has thrown a career-high 17 touchdown passes and Robby Anderson has at least one touchdown catch in his last five games, averaging 17.4 yards per reception. The Chiefs then jumped ahead when Tyreek Hill caught his second long touchdown of the day, this one 40 yards from Smith.

Smith now sits as Week 13's best fantasy quarterback with 37.64 FanDuel points on Sunday. Most notably, he had a 70-yard scramble that put the Chiefs' offense in field goal range.

Still it wasn't enough.

Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters picked up an official's flag, threw it into the crowd and walked off the field Sunday with less than three minutes remaining in his team's game against the New York Jets. Elijah McGuire ran it in moments later to convert the 2-point play and make it 38-31.


On the other hand, the Chiefs' defense regressed significantly against the Jets. The Jets (5-7) ended a stretch of five losses in six games with one of the weirder finishes you'll ever see in an National Football League game.

The Chiefs were flagged for defensive holding again on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt. McCown completed 26 of 36 passes for 331 yards and a touchdown, to go along with 21 yards rushing and his two touchdowns.

At 6-6 overall, their games don't get any more critical than the next two, both at home against AFC West opponents. 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.
