Bowles said both players will return to the starting lineup next week - unless they give the coach a reason to change his mind. And the Jets' 23rd-ranked offense proceeded to carve up the Chiefs' defense and propel NY to a 38-31 victory at MetLife Stadium.
The Chiefs now host the Raiders in Week 14, facing a crucial stretch of their season in which they face all three of their division opponents in four games.
Alex Smith and the Chiefs' struggles continued. His first pass was a completion to receiver Demarcus Robinson for 10 yards, his second was a completion to Kelce for 32 yards, and after another completion to receiver Tyreek Hill for 11 yards, Smith connected with Kelce again for a 22-yard touchdown throw. And that led to Peters coming back on the field with no tape on his ankles or even socks.
How they should approach those games is a dilemma. Later, on 3rd-and-4, Kansas City gifted the Jets another first down on a defensive holding.

An Israeli military spokeswoman had declined to comment on earlier reports of such an attack overnight. Iran and Lebanon's Hizballah movement are allied with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
McCown and the Gang Green offense responded to Hill's score with a 76-yard drive, capped off by the 38-year-old quarterback's second rushing touchdown of the day. He also returned a punt 24 yards in the first half.
The Jets added a pair of field goals and the Chiefs found themselves in a 30-24 hole early in the fourth.
The team had 5 penalties for 40 yards. But the Chiefs were called for unnecessary roughness on Catanzaro's attempt, and the Jets received a fresh set of downs. But Kansas City's Bennie Logan was called for a personal foul for hitting long snapper Thomas Hennessy on the play.
