With week thirteen of the NFL season basically in the books, these three teams put on abysmal performances yesterday. The Kansas City Chiefs found new ways to lose once again, while the Detroit Lions ran out of gas in their comeback attempt and the Atlanta Falcons high-powered offense got stifled at home by the Minnesota Vikings defense.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs went into their road game against the New York Jets needing to come out of it with a victory. Kansas City struck quickly, jumping out to a 14-0 lead less than five minutes into the first quarter.

New York then scored 21 of the next 24 points to take a 21-17 halftime lead, as the Chiefs only managed two field goal attempts, one of which they missed.

Both teams went both and forth in the third and fourth quarters, with the Chiefs finally retaking the lead with 9:13 left on a 40-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill to make it 31-30.

The Jets then drove all the way down and faced a fourth-and-three, having to settle for a field goal. However, the field goal got nullified as the Chiefs got unnecessary roughness, giving the Jets another chance.

The Jets then were stopped on third down but the Chiefs got holding, and the Jets scored on third down.

Kansas City then stopped their two-point conversion but got holding again, and Marcus Peters ended up throwing the referee's flag into the stands, leading to more penalties. New York converting on the second try to take a 38-31 lead. Kansas City then drove down and got to the 19 yard line but turned it over on downs, losing for the sixth time in their last seven games.

Detroit Lions

The Detriot Lions got manhandled in the first half against the Baltimore Ravens, as they found themselves in a 20-0 hole at halftime. In the first half they punted four times, normally accurate kicker Matt Prater missed a field goal, and quarterback Matthew Stafford fumbled. However, the Lions came roaring back like they usually do, scoring with 10:20 left in the fourth to make it 27-20 before everything fell apart again.

Baltimore went down and made a field goal to make it a 10 point game again.

Then Stafford was intercepted, injuring his hand in the process, and the Ravens scored again on a six-yard rushing touchdown. Backup quarterback Jack Rudock drove the Lions to midfield before being pick-sixed by Eric Weddle as Detroit lost 44-20.

Atlanta Falcons

The Atlanta Falcons had a key game against the Minnesota Vikings, as they needed a win to keep pace in their division and the NFC playoff race. However, their offense never got going as they faced a 7-6 halftime deficit. Late in the fourth quarter of the game, they were losing 14-9. After the Vikings touchdown, they went three-and-out, but their defense forced the Vikings to punt after five plays.

Atlanta then went on a ten-play, 44-yard drive that stalled out and ended with a missed 45-yard field goal which would have made it a two-point game. The Falcons defense was then unable to get the ball back as the Vikings ran out the last five minutes of the fourth quarter.
