The Chiefs scored early and often, going up 17-0 in the first quarter. Running back Isiah Pacheco broke of a 48-yard touchdown run for the game’s first touchdown.

Noah Gray scored a touchdown later that quarter which was Patrick Mahomes 200th career touchdown.
But after Jawaan Taylor’s facemask penalty in the end zone — resulting in a safety — everything started titling in the Jets’ favor. After the safety, Mahomes seemed to force unnecessary throws downfield. He was intercepted twice before halftime.
The Jets defense made an early adjustment by dropping linebacker C.J. Mosely back into coverage to help double-cover Travis Kelce. Mosely snagged one of Mahomes’ interceptions — just one of several he could have made.
Harrison Butker made his job look easy, going three-for-three on field goal attempts and the giving Kansas City the lead in the fourth quarter.
