New York Giants vs. KC Chiefs: A brief history

New, comment

These two organizations don't have a ton of history, although one game stands out.

The Kansas City Chiefs do not have a great history against the New York Giants, sporting a 2-10 all-time record against Big Blue.

In their last meeting, the Giants won 27-16 with Steve Smith going off for a pair of touchdowns back in 2009. The last time the Chiefs won in this rivalry was 1995, when The Kicker Who Shall Not Be Named hit a game-winning field goal to earn a 20-17 victory.

Of course, the most famous game between the two took place on September 23, 2001. The contest was the first played following September 11th, and Arrowhead Stadium gave a very warm welcome to the Giants who won that day, 13-3. Needless to say, it was a time when football took a back seat to life.

As for players who donned both uniforms, the list is not dotted with Hall of Famers. Lawrence Tynes comes to mind, along with Kawika Mitchell and Mark Collins. Anybody else you can think of? Let us know in the comments.
