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

According to multiple sources, Wilkerson sat out the early part of Sunday's win against the Chiefs for the same reason he was temporarily benched in a game last season as he showed up late to another team practice.

The Jets (5-7) blew fourth-quarter leads in three of their previous five games heading into this weekend.

On the other hand, the Chiefs' defense regressed significantly against the Jets.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith threw for 366 yards and 4 touchdowns in Week 13 but still lost 38-31 to the New York Jets.

Meanwhile, Darrelle Revis is active and will play for the Chiefs against the Jets. They extended that to 30-24 on a Chandler Catanzaro field goal with 11:23 remaining. Then it was receiver Tyreek Hill in the second.

First it was tight end Travis Kelce in the first half. Finally, after 10 goal-to-goal plays, quarterback Josh McCown plunged in from a yard out to give the Jets a 36-31 lead.

Despite trailing 14-0 early, the Jets clawed back thanks to a huge offensive day.

Kansas City's Bennie Logan and Steven Nelson were the goats, because after their defensive penalties, the Jets finally stepped on the Chiefs' throats.

But McCown and the Jets punched right back, scoring a pair of touchdowns of their own.

The Chiefs were flagged for defensive holding again on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt. Cornerback Marcus Peters had had enough at that point, chucking the penalty flag into the stands, drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and leaving the field despite not being ejected.
