Kansas City Falls to New York, 38-31, in Shootout

Posted Dec 3, 2017

The Chiefs had a chance late, but came up short on Sunday

The Kansas City Chiefs fell to the New York Jets, 38-31, in a shootout on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

Trailing by one with just over two minutes to play, New York took the lead when Jets’ quarterback Josh McCown dove ahead for a 1-yard score.

Kansas City had a chance to tie it, taking over with just over two minutes remaining, but the drive stalled at the Jets’ 19-yard line as quarterback Alex Smith’s fourth-down pass fell incomplete and New York took over on downs.

Smith completed 19 of 33 passes for 366 yards and four touchdowns on the afternoon, finding tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill each for a pair of scores.

It marked the third time in Smith’s career that the 12-year veteran tossed four or more touchdowns.

Hill finished with six catches for a career-high 185 yards, hauling in a career-long 79-yard touchdown grab and a 40-yard score. It was his first-career game with multiple touchdown catches, and his 185 yards through the air were the most by a Chief since Jamaal Charles on Dec. 15, 2013.

The Chiefs will return to Arrowhead Stadium next week to take on the Oakland Raiders.
