Chiefs thrive on turnovers in 24-3 blowout of Jets
Sep 26 2016 by Francis Osborne
"He's getting older, but he's wiser", Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. In those 50 games, they have turned the ball over 53 times.
Today's New York Jets vs Kansas City Chiefs football game has a start time schedule of 4:25pm eastern time and will air on TV channel CBS in some markets. This is actually a fumble, touchback and Jets ball! "We have to put an end to that". Only then did the Chiefs decide they needed to throw the ball down the field, which resulted in three well-thrown incompletions.
One was an errant shotgun snap from center Mitch Morse that went over the head of his quarterback.
Charles hasn't played a down this season and Week 3 isn't looking much better for the running back to make his return after tearing his ACL in October. Spencer Ware has filled in admirably for Charles, while receiver Jeremy Maclin and tight end Travis Kelce give Alex Smith a pair of reliable targets. Not very good, and maybe these are semantic differences that I'll clarify with more time to think about it and another look at the game, but with a few exceptions his passes were accurate and his mistakes both few and small.
That defeat proved to be a huge obstacle for the Chiefs.
One of the most important factors in this game is home-field advantage. Of course, that's like asking Mrs. Lincoln what she thought of the play, but consider that the Chiefs'offense only produced 10 points, all in the first half, while Kansas City corralled three of Fitzpatrick's picks in their own end zone. "The end of the game was the end of the game, but the red zone interceptions are what hurt us". "We have to regroup Monday and come back to work". They were five yards from making it a seven-point game.
Here are three things we learned after watching the Chiefs host the Jets on Sunday. The series is tied, 17-17-1.
But as they piled up, it just became laughable as Ryan threw the most interceptions in a game since Peyton Manning in 2007 as reported by Darryl Slater, Jets beat writer for NJ Advanceposted via Twitter.

Kansas City owns a 5-4 record against the Jets at Arrowhead and overall they are 9-5 against NY in games played in Kansas City.
The Jets' offense, if it's anywhere near full strength, can make this a game. Two touchdowns. HELL OF A GAME from the Chiefs defense (and special teams). That's especially the case when you consider the excess of passing-game options for the Jets.
But the Pro Bowl-caliber Poe returned on Sunday in Houston. It has to start with a defensive stop since Kansas City gets the ball to start the second half.
Jets coach Todd Bowles said he knew Marshall could play Friday with how he ran around.
"You guys can write whatever you want about me or say whatever you want about me, but I'm going to always be out there fighting", Fitzpatrick said. It was tipped, and cornerback Marcus Peters intercepted it. In 20 regular and postseason games in his short career, Peters has 11 interceptions. The Ravens improved to 3-0 for the third time in franchise history and first since 2009. And he was the No. 3 quarterback until Sam Bradford was traded to Minnesota just eight days before the season opener.
The Jets had several opportunities to get back in the game, but Fitzpatrick had thrown them all away. "Tomorrow we've got to be ready to go forward".
However, after the half, the Chiefs offense came out pretty stale.
