After another tough loss, the Jets will be keen to move on from talk of the Panthers game and look ahead to the 6-5 Kansas City Chiefs, which earlier this season looked like one of the toughest opponents on the Jets' schedule. That's no longer the case, as the Chiefs have lost five of their last six, just like the Jets.
After five weeks, the Chiefs were 5-0 and already had a three-game lead over the Raiders and a four-game lead over the Chargers. Now, both Oakland and Los Angeles are one game back in the AFC West. (The Broncos, who were 3-1 at the time, have lost seven in a row.)
What has happened to the Chiefs? The main problem seems to be on offense. Overall, they've averaged just 12 points in the last three weeks, after the Steelers had been the only team to hold them below 24 in the first seven.
Alex Smith seems to be falling apart after a terrific start to the season, while rookie sensation Kareem Hunt appears to have hit the wall. Hunt was held to 17 rushing yards on Sunday, a season low, and after four 100-yard games in the first five weeks of the season, hasn't had one since. He also hasn't scored a touchdown since Sept. 24 after opening the season with six in the first three games.
The Jets may be struggling, but so were Kansas City's last two opponents (the Giants and Bills), so perhaps this is a game they have a good chance to win. One thing's for certain: one team has to end its slide on Sunday.
