The Kansas City Chiefs lost to the New York Giants, 12-9. This drops the Chiefs to 6-4 on the season. The Giants were 1-8 before this game so this is about as bad as it gets for the Chiefs this season. The Giants are the worst team they’ll play and they couldn’t beat them. This is not good.
The one good thing
Travis Kelce had a good day? He had 109 of Alex’s 230 yards passing. That’s all I can come up with. (Kelce also threw a pick so let’s ignore that) That’s the one positive in this game. The rest sucked.
This play helped us get to overtime
Alex Smith was off all day long. He wasn’t just missing receivers but a little bit but missing them by a couple of feet. This was one such throw and it came at a terrible time. The Chiefs and Giants were tied with two minutes left in the game and Alex throws this ball deep in his own territory:
The Chiefs came back down for a field goal on the next drive to send it to overtime.
This play lost it in overtime
The Giants went deep on fourth down in overtime and made this catch. This ended it.
The Chiefs did not look good
Geoff Schwartz’s reaction to Alex Smith’s interception with two minutes left in the game:
Hahahahahahahahaha. That's the only emotion I have. This is so embarrassing.— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) November 19, 2017
I like to have some positive things to say here but WOOF. The Chiefs weren’t very good all around. The defense didn’t have any game changing plays nor did they get enough pressure. We joked about Justin Houston having four sacks today going against a rookie right tackle ... and he didn’t make any big plays.
Offensively, the Chiefs turned it over twice and one of those turnovers sealed the loss with two minutes left. They had one explosive play to Tyreek Hill and that’s it. Kareem Hunt couldn’t get it going. This was supposed to be a Giants defense ranked 30th in the league. We were predicting the Chiefs to put up 30-plus points.
I just don’t get it.
Chiefs made two lineup changes
Zach Fulton started at left guard in place of Bryan Witzmann.
Phillip Gaines started at cornerback in place of Kenneth Acker.
