On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs turned in a mixed bag performance against the New York Jets.

Would it last? Of course not. Bowles said both players will return to the starting lineup next week - unless they give the coach a reason to change his mind.

In the end, NY took advantage of its second chance and scored on the two-point try to go up 38-31. Revis, who played eight years over two stints with the Jets, started for the Chiefs, but spent the second half on the sideline.

The Chiefs fell to 6-6 in a season that is rapidly falling off a cliff, though it should be noted that for the first time in weeks, the offense, and particularly the quarterback, did enough to win. But Smith was then incomplete on three straight passes. He connected with his two most prominent targets, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, for 2 touchdowns apiece.

Kelce accounted for 54 of those yards on two catches, the latter coming in the form of a 22-yard scoring reception from Smith.

How they should approach those games is a dilemma. He owns a 4-to-4 touchdown-to-interception ratio, a 6.3 yards per attempt avrage, and a 78.7 passer rating during his last four games. Defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson missed the first quarter.

The team had 5 penalties for 40 yards. He threw for more than 300 yards, and had a 70-yard scramble in the second quarter to set up a field goal. The Chiefs seemed to get a third-down stop after that, but a defensive holding was called. But McCown eventually scored from a yard out to take a 36-31 lead.

McCown's pass on the 2-point conversion was incomplete, but Nelson was called for holding. In frustration, cornerback Marcus Peters - dead serious - picked up the flag and threw into the stands.

But he wasn't officially ejected, even though he walked off the field to the locker room, and then had to come back to the field without any socks on his feet. Smith's pass sailed incomplete - there wasn't a receiver in the immediate vicinity - ending the comeback bid and cementing yet another loss.
