The Kansas City Chiefs return home in Week 8 for their third of five primetime games in 2021. Kansas City hosts the New York Giants for Monday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs have opened up as 10-point favorites, according to DraftKings sportsbook.

The Chiefs were 4-point road favorites against the Tennessee Titans in Week 7, but they lost 27-3. The Giants defeated the Carolina Panthers in their Week 7 game, 25-3, improving to 2-5. The Chiefs are 3-4.

The last time the Chiefs and Giants met was in 2017 — in what turned out to be one of the worst football games of all time. The Chiefs entered the game 6-3 and lost to a 1-8 Giants team 12-9 in overtime. Tight end Travis Kelce threw an interception on a failed trick play but had 109 of Alex Smith’s 230 passing yards.
