Chiefs Trail Jets, 21-17, at Halftime

Kansas City led most of the way before New York took a late lead

The Kansas City Chiefs trail the New York Jets, 21-17, at halftime at MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Kansas City led for much of the half before Jets' quarterback Josh McCown found running back Matt Forte for a go-ahead touchdown with 23 seconds remaining.

The Chiefs raced out to an early 14-0 lead as quarterback Alex Smith found tight end Travis Kelce for a pair of scores on Kansas City's first two drives.

Smith completed 11 of 18 passes for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the half, finding Kelce three times for a team-leading 90 yards.

The two touchdowns made it seven for Kelce on the season, marking a career-high.

New York answered with a pair of scores to tie the game before taking the lead in the half's closing seconds.

Chiefs' kicker Harrison Butker added a 36-yard field goal for Kansas City following a 70-yard run by Smith- the longest rush by a quarterback in the NFL this season.

Catch the second half of action on CBS (KCTV5 local) and 101.1 The Fox.
