The New York Jets defeated the Kansas City Chiefs by the score of 37-10. It was a blow out right from the start as the Jets marched right down the field and scored. The Chiefs had a total of four first half yards. The Chiefs basically didn’t even get off the bus for this game. Mark Sanchez had a very businesslike performance and the Jets rushing attack was very good. The defense was great although the Chiefs offense isn’t very good at all.
