New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Top 5 matchups

Adjust Comment Print

The New York Giants (1-8) will host the Kansas City Chiefs (6-3) for the first time since a 27-17 victory on December 17, 2005 in Giants Stadium.

The playcalling was far more aggressive, including a first-quarter fake punt on a 4-and-1 and a running back option pass that ended with Shane Vereen throwing an interception at the goal line. Over the last two weeks the Giants run defense has been abysmal, giving up an average of 174 yards.

"I thought Janoris Jenkins played his tail off", McAdoo said.

"I think it would have been the same [result] either way", he said.

The Giants then marched 26 yards on six plays toward a 1-yard touchdown run by running back Orleans Darkwa to take a 6-0 lead. "We could have won, 10-9 (in regulation had he hit the extra point in the second quarter)".

When was the last time Aldrick Rosas kicked a walk-off, game-winning field goal like in Sunday's overtime win?

Once upon a time, the Kansas City Chiefs owned a 5-0 record.

After picking off a poorly thrown ball by Alex Smith and running it back to the Chiefs 23-yard line, NY managed to pick up just one first down before settling for a field goal with 1:41 left in regulation. Eli Manning is known to throw interceptions and the only commodity at wideout right now for the Giants is Sterling Shepard.

Coach Andy Reid is great after the bye and the Chiefs are way better than the Giants. "This is all part of everyone being part of that". It's not just Alex there as you look at.

After Manning took a knee, Rosas delivered the game-winner.

"Coming out, we knew this game was going to be windy, so I really prepared to be mentally strong", he said. "Honestly I couldn't tell you what it was". The Giants will have to win five key matchups if they hope to earn their first home victory of the 2017 season. "We still have pressure, but to play a team like the way we did is awesome".

Russell Simmons to Terry Crews: Give your sexual assaulter 'a pass'
She said that Simmons once asked her to bring him a toothbrush, and when she said someone else would bring him one, he persisted. Music mogul Russell Simmons is defending himself following allegations he forced a former model to have sex with him.

But it was the Giants' defense that managed to put the team in a position to win. Reid had been 16-2 after the bye, including 3-1 since joining the Chiefs.

"It's tough to win in the National Football League", he said.

Two? Three? Four? Or after that 1-8 start, including the woeful performance in San Francisco that led to ownership's unprecedented he-is-still-the-coach statement, is a decision already made?

One of the biggest, if not the biggest, names leading the race for the rookie of the year award Kareem Hunt has been completely underused, especially over the last few games.

The Chiefs (6-4) will host Buffalo next week.

NOTES: This was the first time since September 10, 1995, that the Giants and Chiefs went into overtime.

While Andy has given the Chiefs some really good regular seasons since 2013, his playcalling could most likely be the biggest issue when it comes to winning a playoff game.

The Chiefs are the clear favorites on the road at MetLife Stadium this Sunday.

After moving the ball into Chiefs territory, the Giants tried some more trickery.

Player of the game: Giants safety Landon Collins was all over the place, recording 14 tackles, a tackle for loss and an interception. The Chiefs tied the score at 9-9 in the final seconds on Harrison Butker's 23-yard field goal.
