Marcus Peters tosses referee's flag into stands

The Chiefs cornerback headed to the locker room with 2:15 remaining in Sunday's game after tossing a penalty flag into the stands at MetLife Stadium.

"Most officials become attached to their flag", former National Football League referee Mike Carey told Sam Farmer earlier this season.

The Jets were forced to kick a field goal from the 7-yard line after Bilal Powell was dropped short of the end zone. Josh McCown has thrown a career-high 17 touchdown passes and Robby Anderson has at least one touchdown catch in his last five games, averaging 17.4 yards per reception.

Still it wasn't enough.

Tennessee fans react negatively to Greg Schiano
He returned to coaching in December of 2015 when Ohio State coach Urban Meyer hired him as the Buckeyes' defensive coordinator. So what's the reaction from the Volunteers fan base in hearing about their new head coach? This is a developing story .

An apparent stop of a two-point conversion of the New York Jets by the Kansas City Chiefs was negated on a holding penalty.

At 6-6, their games don't get any more critical than the next two, both at home against AFC West opponents.

How they should approach those games is a dilemma.

Jets starting linebacker Darron Lee was a surprise inactive for Sunday's game with the Chiefs. NY converted 13 of 20 third-down plays, and the Chiefs committed eight penalties. Later, on 3rd-and-4, Kansas City gifted the Jets another first down on a defensive holding. The Chiefs generally script those plays well before kickoff; they are not selected in the moment.
