SHAME!!! UNDISCIPLINED KANSAS CITY CHIEFS DEFEATED BY NEW YORK JETS 31-38 THANKS TO DISGRACEFUL LITANY OF LATE GAME PENALTIES!!! SEASON IS OVER!!!
In the last moments of the game, controversial national anthem protester and Chiefs CB Marcus Peters lost his cool as he threw a penalty flag into the stands. He left the game but then later came back halfway dressed and talking trash to New York fans. More than any other player, the volatile on-field demeanor of this part-time social justice activist defines the 2017 season for Kansas City.
To be fair, Coach Reid deserves a lot of blame beyond his elementary play calling for a lack of control or even influence over this squad.
Sadly, the Chiefs put on an otherwise brilliant performance.
QB Alex Smith threw 4 touchdown passes and made a career-long 70-year ramble down field.
Wide-Receiver Tyreek Hill put on one of the best performances of the season with amazing yardage and inspired play.
TE Travis Kelce was underutilized late in the game but delivered some of his greatest catches of the year.
However, the last drive of the game doomed the Kansas City Chiefs to yet another season of mediocrity.
One penalty after the next gave the Jets more than a half-a-dozen opportunities to score and one last penalty secured the team's fate with a 2-point conversation.
And then came the outburst from Marcus Peters which proved to be a distraction and the final nail in the team's coffin.
In the final analysis, half-baked politics and a basic lack of personal responsibility has doomed the Kansas City Chiefs as the protesting antics of Marcus Peters defines the losing 2017 season.
The Chiefs now stand at 6-6. They've lost 4 games in a row and dropped 6 games out of 7.
