EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Halftime notes from the Chiefs-Jets game where the score is tied 14-14:

Tyler Thigpen is looking very good for his second NFL start. He has completed 15 of 20 pass attempts for 179 yards and two touchdowns. Thigpen completed his first 10 pass attempts. He looks comfortable and in control. He looks like a prospect, which hasn't been the case in his previous playing experience.

Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez sure didn't call it quits after not being traded earlier this month. He's following up a good game last week against Tennessee with another solid performance today. There's plenty of gas left in that tank.

The Chiefs tied the game on an 11-yard pass from Thigpen to receiver Mark Bradley with four seconds remaining. Bradley was initially called out of bounds but the play was reviewed and reversed. Had the play not been reversed the Chiefs were preparing to try a field goal.

The Chiefs' offensive line continues to struggle. Thigpen has been sacked three times.

The Jets were cruising early, but when Jay Feely missed a 36-yard field goal on their second possession, they seemed to stall and allowed the Chiefs back in the game. Had Feely's field goal been good, the Jets would have taken a 10-0 lead in the first quarter.

Jets quarterback Brett Favre has thrown two bad interceptions, but otherwise has been solid. He looks much more active and lively than he did last week in an overtime loss at Oakland.

The Jets' Super Bowl III team was honored on the field. The crowd is still roaring over Joe Namath.

Chiefs' rookie running back Jamaal Charles has an ankle injury. His return is questionable.
