Late Score Lifts Jets Over Chiefs 28-24


While the Jets didn’t make it easy, they were able to escape Sunday afternoon with a hard fought 28-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs at the Meadowlands. The game-winner came with just one minute left, as Brett Favre was able to find Laveranues Coles with a 15-yard score to overcome what was a 24-21 deficit.

The game Chiefs were able to grab the three-point lead when rookie Brandon Flowers took back a Favre interception 91 yards with 7:48 to go to get the lead. The Jets defense had their problems with Chiefs young QB Tyler Thigpen, as he had his best day as a pro, going 25-for-36 for 280 yards and two TD’s.

Favre was 28-for-40 for 290 yards with two TD’s. He did again though have his issues with the picks, as he threw another three, giving him five over the last two weeks. Leon Washington was a big key to the Jets offense today, as he had a big 60 yard run and ended the day with 67 yards on three carries. He also had three catches for 34 yards and a TD.


Jericho Cotchery continues to be the favorite wide out for Favre, catching nine passes for 102 yards. The Jets offense put up 420 yards to 330 for KC. The now 4-3 Jets have a big battle next wek as they travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills, who were upset Sunday by the Dolphins in Miami.
