Marcus Peters Melts Down, Throws Official's Flag Into Stands

  • NFL Week 13 Predictions: Will Jets hand Chiefs another loss? 12/3/17

Marcus Peter has good reason to be angry.

The next thing to watch for in December: The white flag being waved on what was once a dream season for the Chiefs. And there's plenty of blame to go around for it.

Thinking he had been disqualified from the game after being penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct, cornerback retreated to the locker room before the end of Sunday's 38-31 loss to the.

Alex Smith kept rookie quarterback Patrick Mahomes on the bench for at least another week by tossing four touchdown passes along with gaining 70 yards on a second-quarter scramble. Tyreek Hill, meanwhile, has had more than 68 yards receiving just once in his last eight games. He would have scored a third if not for a Smith underthrow (a recurring problem).

Smith looked more like the MVP candidate he was early in the season than the struggling quarterback he's been in recent weeks.

It was announced earlier in the day that Chiefs head coach Andy Reid ceded play-calling duties to offensive coordinator Matt Nagy, and the move seemed to pay immediate dividends in a high-scoring first quarter.

Jets LB Darron Lee was a surprise inactive vs. the Chiefs. But both came in Kansas City's first 15 snaps. Peters was also penalized and then left the playing field, escorted by a Chiefs' security officer.

Possible candidates could include Oregon's Willie Taggart and Virginia Tech's Justin Fuente. "I don't have any doubt about that". The Aggies went hard after Fisher following the firing of Kevin Sumlin, who went 51-26 in six seasons with the program.

In the end, NY took advantage of its second chance and scored on the two-point try to go up 38-31.

McCown's pass on the 2-point conversion was incomplete, but Nelson was called for holding.

The problem: He wasn't.

Josh McCown ran extremely far back as he was pursued by the Kansas City defensive line while going for two, eventually just chucking the ball away.

The scene provided an appropriate metaphor of a team being stripped of its Super Bowl hopes.

Kansas City has dropped six of its last seven after opening the season 5-0, but remains in the mix in the AFC West playoff hunt.
