Late in the fourth quarter, however, the temperamental cornerback had a meltdown of epic proportions after being penalized with two minutes left in the game.
The Chiefs (6-6) were keen to prove that they are still challengers for the AFC West and wasted no time getting on the scoreboard, embarking on a five-play, 75-yard opening touchdown drive in just 2:38. 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.
McCown promptly converted two third downs.
The defense gave up a 70-yard run to QB Alex Smith to set up a field goal. The official then threw his hat and called a personal-foul penalty on Peters.
McCown's pass on the 2-point conversion was incomplete, but Nelson was called for holding.
Making matters even more odd is that Peters walked off the field in disgust despite not actually being ejected.
After this point, Peters left the field and originally it was believed that officials had tossed him from the game.
The Jets were forced to kick a field goal from the 7-yard line after Bilal Powell was dropped short of the end zone.
