### Jets \ Chiefs --- The Official Game Thread ###

Recommended Posts

“They play good, solid football,” Reid said. “That’s how they do it.”

That’s how the Chiefs should start doing it.

They lost three fumbles last week against the Texans . They were flagged nine times for 77 yards. They were 0 for 2 in the red zone and converted just three times on third down.

In short, it was anything but solid football.

“It comes down to lack of execution. I know you guys hate hearing that,” Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said. “This past week I think every single drive we had, be it a penalty, a turnover, a negative play — that stalls a drive. And those are hard to overcome against a good defense.”

As the Chiefs try to turn things around, and the Jets look to keep their momentum going



How they’ll win

Jets: The Chiefs’ offensive line is decimated by injury, and the Jets potent pass rush should be able to take advantage. The defense will chase QB Alex Smith around the backfield on the way to another inconsistent day for the Kansas City offense. Meanwhile, the Jets offense picks up where it left off against the Bills as Fitzpatrick takes care of the ball.

Chiefs: The Jets have offensive line issues of their own — left guard James Carpenter (calf) is questionable, and they already are playing without their starting right tackle.    (IMHO, this is actually the good news..LIJetsFan)

The Chiefs take advantage, forcing Fitzpatrick to make tough throws and capitalizing with a turnover or two. Meanwhile, the Chiefs offense takes advantage of the Jets’ secondary for a big scoring play. This time, it’s one big play too many.

Paylor: Charles is a fabulous talent, one of the league's best backs when healthy, but the Chiefs' rushing attack has been just fine since he's been out. Between Spencer Ware and Charcandrick West, the Chiefs have found a duo that can replicate most - but not all - of what Charles does. Ware is the bruiser, West is the cruiser; both are willing blockers and able catchers, and are worthy of roles even when Charles does return.
