Jets’ defense steps up

The Jets’ defense deserves a lot of credit for holding the Chiefs’ explosive offense to 24 points, well below their season average of 34.3 points per game. The Jets forced three turnovers, including a pick-six by cornerback Bryce Hall in the second quarter that gave them a 14-10 lead. The Jets also stopped the Chiefs on a crucial fourth-and-one at their own 36-yard line with less than two minutes left in the game, sealing the victory.

The Jets’ defense was led by linebacker C.J. Mosley, who had 10 tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble. Safety Marcus Maye had seven tackles and an interception, while defensive end Carl Lawson had two sacks and a fumble recovery.

Taylor Swift sparks controversy

The game was not without controversy, as pop star Taylor Swift was spotted in the stands cheering for the Chiefs. Swift, who is rumored to be dating Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, wore a red Chiefs jersey with his number and name on it. She also posted several photos and videos on her Instagram story, showing her support for Kelce and his team.

Swift’s presence caused a backlash from some Jets fans, who booed her whenever she appeared on the big screen. Some fans also accused her of being a jinx for the Chiefs, as they lost their first game with her in attendance. Swift did not respond to the criticism, but she did congratulate the Jets on their win in a tweet after the game.
