Chiefs D bails out banged-up offense

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chiefs stuffed the Jaguars on fourth down with less than two minutes left deep in Kansas City territory, preserving a victory despite finishing without five offensive starters.

"That's what football is all about. You're going to have weeks where you have injuries," said quarterback Nick Foles, who started in place of Alex Smith. "You have to step up and make plays. That's what great teams do."

The Chiefs played all day without Smith and starting running back Spencer Ware, who were out with concussions, and guard Parker Ehinger, who went on injured reserve with a knee injury.

Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin hurt his groin on the Chiefs' first series, and tight end Travis Kelce was ejected in the fourth quarter after arguing over a pass interference no-call then tossing his towel at the official as if it were a flag.

"As soon as the ref took off his hat, I knew I was out. Felt like an idiot," he said. "It was a terrible decision, but just have to learn from it and keep going."

What did Kelce learn from it?

"I can't throw my flag at the ref," he said. "He can throw his all day long."
