Chiefs at Jets

  • At MetLife Stadium
  • Sunday, 1 p.m. 
  • TV CBS 
  • Line: Chiefs by three.5

What's at stake 

Jets: It is a younger, growing staff that has proven flashes of a probably brilliant future. However the Jets want a win within the worst strategy to show that they are constructing one thing tangible. They've misplaced 5 of the final six video games, together with three blown leads within the fourth quarter. If the Jets can get a win this week, it could be an indication that they are studying methods to shut out video games towards good groups. And it could permit them to consider, for an additional week, of their slim playoff possibilitiesBut when they maintain dropping, coach Todd Bowles' seat will begin to get scorching. Sure, possession has stated that Bowles can be judged on exhibiting progress, not wins and losses. But when the Jets maintain dropping winnable video games with late meltdowns, it will likely be laborious to argue that could be a step in the correct course

Chiefs: The dangerous information is that Kansas Metropolis has additionally misplaced 5 of its final six video games. However the Chiefs (6-5) began so effectively that they are nonetheless accountable for the AFC West. It is not possible to overstate the significance of this recreation for Kansas Metropolis, which is enjoying its second recreation at MetLife Stadium within the final three weeks -- two weeks in the past the Chiefs misplaced to the Giants, 12-9 in extra time right here. Now they return with their season at a crossroads. A win and the droop is over and the Chiefs are two video games over .500 and in fine condition to win the division heading into the ultimate quarter of the season. A loss drops them to .500 and places them in a dogfight with a Chargers staff that appears to have discovered itself within the second half of the season.  
 

Key matchup

Kansas Metropolis tight finish Travis Kelce vs. Jets safeties Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye: Jamal Adams and Marcus Maye have performed their rookie season with the poise of veterans. They insist they not really feel like rookies. And so they're about to get an enormous check in slowing down Travis Kelce. Adams and Maye will probably mix on protection towards Kelce, who leads the Chiefs in targets (87), receptions (62), receiving yards (777) and receiving touchdowns (5). Kelce has lived on chunk performs this season, with 14 catches of 20 yards or extra. It is going to be particularly necessary to maintain him in examine early; Kansas Metropolis's offense has been struggling and a giant play early by Kelce might get issues bounce began.
 

How they're going to win

Jets: If the protection continues to play the way in which it did towards Carolina final week, the Jets ought to have likelihood on this recreation. The Jets have given up solely three touchdowns to the opposing offense within the final two video games. If they will maintain Kelce and operating again Kareem Hunt in examine (he is second within the NFL with 890 dashing yards), they're going to be proper there. The massive query mark is the offense. After the debacle in Tampa, the Jets confirmed huge enchancment offensively towards Carolina final week. However there was nonetheless an excessive amount of inconsistency -- particularly within the purple zone. Search for the Jets to check former cornerback Darrelle Revis, who returns to the Meadowlands for his Chiefs debut -- particularly on a deep ball if he is lined up towards Robby Anderson.  If the Jets make a couple of huge performs and capitalize on their scoring possibilities, they're going to probably win. 
 
Chiefs: The Chiefs have to discover a strategy to make a big-time play, one thing they've did not do too usually throughout this midseason malaise. That spark might come from particular groups. The Jets are coming off a nasty week, giving up a back-breaking, fourth-quarter punt return to the Panthers. And the Chiefs have among the finest weapons on the NFL in Tyreek Hill. An enormous play by Hill might change every thing. Additionally, the Jets' offensive line has been disappointing currently and beginning proper guard Brian Winters his banged up (listed as questionable with an ankle damage). If the Chiefs, led by Justin Houston (eight.5 sacks) can put strain on McCown, they need to be capable to disrupt the Jets' offense sufficient to have an opportunity
