Jets linebacker Darron Lee celebrates after stopping the Browns on fourth and one during the second half on October 8, 2017, in Cleveland. It means there is a meltdown by a player on the field, a star defender at that, which turned into something more-the abandoning of his team by Peters.
On the retry, the Jets converted to take a seven-point lead, while Peters got an unsportsmanlike conduct flag for his actions.
It was McCown that delivered the go-ahead score, punching in his second one-yard touchdown rush of the day.
The Jets carried a 27-24 lead into the fourth quarter. But officials threw a flag for defensive holding, which was the third key penalty of the drive against the Chiefs. They extended that to 30-24 on a Chandler Catanzaro field goal with 11:23 remaining. But the Chiefs' defense collapsed, allowing nearly 500 yards to the Jets. Both came on the ground, a nine-yard rush from Elijah McGuire and a one-yard sneak by McCown to tie the game at 14 before the end of the first quarter. For the game, they had 489 total yards on 331 and 158. On the Jets' 10th snap inside the 10-yard line (!), they finally scored. He also returned a punt 24 yards in the first half.
The Chiefs regained the lead on a Harrison Butker field goal - set up when Smith was almost sacked but broke loose for a 70-yard gain - but the Jets answered before halftime.
