Halftime Recap: Chiefs Lead Jets, 17-3

Travis Kelce recorded his first touchdown of the season

The Kansas City Chiefs lead the New York Jets, 17-3, after two quarters of play at Arrowhead Stadium. Tight end Travis Kelce leads the Chiefs with 36 yards receiving and a touchdown.

After Kansas City's first drive stalled, punter Dustin Colquitt pinned the Jets back to their 1-yard line. Back-to-back rushes by running back Matt Forte got the Jets off their own goal line, and quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick took it himself for a first down. Three plays later, facing third-and-9, Fitzpatrick threw to his right and the ball was picked off by Marcus Peters for his third interception of the season.

Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense began at the New York 35-yard line, and a 13-yard Spencer Ware rush and a 13-yard Tyreek Hill catch got them to the New York 12. On first down, Smith threw to his left and found Kelce, who dove at the goal line for his first touchdown of the season.

Kicker Cairo Santos extended Kansas City's lead with a 27-yard field goal.

On the ensuing kickoff, Jets returner Jalin Marshall fumbled the ball right into the hands of TE Demetrius Harris, who returned the ball 27 yards for a touchdown and a 17-0 Chiefs lead.

The Jets got on the board late in the second quarter with a Nick Folk 28-yard field goal.

Linebacker Derrick Johnson leads the Chiefs defense with five tackles (3 solo). Ware has eight carries for 40 yards rushing.

The Chiefs will receive the ball to begin the third quarter.
