With the Kansas City Chiefs without some of their key players, the Jacksonville Jaguars hoped to go into one of the most rowdy stadiums in the NFL to steal a victory, and maybe save their season.

Both teams had decent drives to begin the game, but both the Jaguars and Chiefs finished their first two drives with punts, starting the game off to a rather unexciting start. However, on the Chiefs second punt on the game, Bryan Walters fumbled on the punt return, setting up the Chiefs with great field position at the Jaguars' 23-yard line.

The Chiefs were quick to take advantage with a 23-yard touchdown from NIck Foles to Albert Wilson on a 2nd and 10, giving the Chiefs a 7-0 lead.

Even with a 42-yard run on the next drive by Chris Ivory, the Jaguars failed to even get into scoring position, coming up empty and punting to the Chiefs.

After a Chiefs three-and-out, the Jaguars were poised to go down the field and tie the game. However, Blake Bortles had other plans, as he threw an ugly interception to Ramik Wilson, giving the Chiefs good field position. But the Jaguars defense held up at the other end though, forcing the Chiefs into a three-and-out. Cairo Santos would hit a 26-yard field goal to give the Chiefs a 10-0 lead.

After two six-play drives by both teams that ended in punts, the Jaguars were finally able to drive down the field, squeaking a touchdown by with two seconds left in the first half. Allen Robinson capped off an 11-play, 88-yard drive with a one-yard touchdown catch from Bortles.

After forcing the Chiefs into a three and out on their first drive of the second half, the Jaguars had a chance to change the momentum of the game with a drive down the field. Unfortunately, the committed their 3rd turnover of the day as T.J. Yeldon fumbled on a screen play that nearly gave them a first down on a 3rd and 17.

The defense stepped up again, forcing the Chiefs into a three-and-out, as Cairo Santos hit a 51-yard field goal to give them a 13-7 lead.

With the game still within a touchdown the Jags aimed to drive the ball downfield, they ended up falling short of that once again, being forced to punt after six plays. Special teams errors continued for the Jaguars, as they gave up a 36-yard punt return to Tyreke Hill, helped with a 10-yard offensive holding penalty, giving the Chiefs great field position at the Jaguars' 30-yard line.

The Jaguars defense stepped up once again, barely holding the Chiefs to a field goal, and keeping them in the game as the Chiefs extended their lead to 16-7.

With good field position after a 45-yard kick return from Marqise Lee, the Jaguars tried once again to cut the 16-7 deficit. They fell short once again however, as they were forced to attempt a 54-yard field goal, which Jason Myers missed.

In one of the weirdest drives you'll ever see, the Chiefs drove down on the Jaguars, only to be sent back 30 yards after getting within 10 yards of the end zone. Tight end Travis Kelce was called for an unsportsmanlike penalty call, then proceeded to throw his towel at the referee, resulting in a disqualification, and another 15 yard penalty. This forced the Chiefs into another field goal, giving them a 19-7 lead, and letting the Jaguars hang on by a string.

With their backs against the wall, the Jaguars drove down to the Chiefs' 3-yard line, highlighted by a 51-yard pass to Marqise Lee. In truly Jaguars fashion though, they squandered the opportunity, as Chris Ivory fumbled into the end-zone, losing a touchdown and giving the Chiefs the ball back with a touchback.

The Jaguars bounced back however, on a 9-play, 61-yard drive that was capped off with a 12-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Yeldon, cutting the lead to 19-14.

After forcing the Chiefs into another three and out, the Jaguars had a chance to drive down the field and win the game. forced into a fourth-and-3, the Jaguars failed to convert on Bortles' pass to Bryan Waltesr, resulting in a turnover on downs.

The Chiefs got a first down on the following drive, and were able to run down the clock, winning the game 19-14.
