New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Breaking down Sunday's game

After he put the Giants ahead 9-6 instead of 10-6 with 1:38 remaining in the game, New York's solid defense broke in the final portion of regulation, allowing the Chiefs to drive down for a game-tying field goal to force overtime.

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.

The Chiefs look to stay red hot against the spread in games on the road as they head into NY to face off against the Giants who have been horrendous this season, and with this one having playoff implications for the visitors I don't anticipate this will be too pretty of an afternoon for the G-Men.

In a game that was enjoyed by no one, fans included, featuring two teams who didn't seem to want to actually win, the New York Giants defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in an uninspired 12-9 victory that gave the Giants their second win of the entire season. The Chiefs were also hurt by turnovers, including the Kelce interception and two other interceptions by Alex Smith-a rare sight this season given that Smith only had 1 interception coming into the game all season.

New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Breaking down Sunday's game

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs came into town and most thought it would be the same story as usual. As the score suggests, it was an ugly game that featured one touchdown and five field goals. Rosas missed the extra point. Reid had been 16-2 after the bye, including 3-1 since joining the Chiefs.

New York's winning drive in overtime was set up thanks to a 36-yard reception by receiver Roger Lewis, who also drew a pass interference penalty on Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines before Rosas' game-winning field goal. Pro Football Focus says Flowers has not given up a sack since that game against the Lions. The Giants (2-8) head to Washington to face the Redskins on Thanksgiving night. The Chiefs are still in first place but play against each of their divisional rivals in December, including a game against the Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium.

Harrison Butker again converts from 31 yards out.
