Chiefs' Kelce with two quick, huge touchdowns

Adjust Comment Print

It's halftime of the KC Chiefs' Sunday afternoon showdown against the New York Jets, and they trail 21-17 at MetLife Stadium.

Also inactive for the Jets are quarterback Christian Hackenberg, corners Robert Nelson and Juston Burris (concussion), linebacker Freddie Bishop, tackle Ben Ijalana and tackle Jonotthan Harrison.

Smith later threw touchdown passes of 79 and 40 yards to Tyreek Hill, and the four TD passes overall allowed him to tie his single-season best of 23, set in his first Chiefs season in 2013. The number of passes the Chiefs attempted in the first half is likely a reflection of the Jets' desire to take it away and the offensive line's inability to create movement, anyway.

Meanwhile, New York kept its faint playoff hopes alive by snapping a two-game skid and holding on to a fourth-quarter lead.

Nebraska reportedly hiring UCF's Scott Frost as new head coach
When asked about interest from Nebraska, Frost replied , "I'd be hurt if Nebraska wasn't interested in me". Scott Frost is expected to be named the next head coach at Nebraska , sources confirmed to ESPN Saturday.

Kelce accounted for 54 of those yards on two catches, the latter coming in the form of a 22-yard scoring reception from Smith. Hill finished with six catches for 185 yards.

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

It's apparently a coach's decision and something that will surely come up in Todd Bowles' press conference after the game. As of Sunday morning, the Chiefs were receiving just over 60% of the tickets at the betting window.

Rookie Elijah McGuire ran in the conversion to provide the final margin, and the Chiefs couldn't convert on fourth down in Jets territory on their last gasp attempt for a touchdown.
