Kansas City Chiefs Rout Hapless New York Giants 31-7

The New York Giants came into Sunday’s away contest against the Kansas City Chief winless at 0-3 and just off the worst loss in head coach Tom Coughlin’s tenure at the helm. Last week’s 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers continued a downward spiral that has seen poor pass protection, turnovers and lack of a running game. Meanwhile, through three games the Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL with a (+13) turnover margin. KC linebacker Justin Houston lead the NFL with 7.5 sacks, so the matchups were potentially disastrous for New York. The Giants hung around early but turnovers and special teams ineffectiveness doomed New York as the Chiefs pulled away late for a 31-7 victory.

New York Giants At Kansas City Chiefs: Two Teams Going In Opposite Directions

The Kansas City Chiefs had the worst record in the NFL last year at 2-14, so after three weeks of the regular season, KC has already passed their win total from last year. The New York Giants were supposed to challenge for the NFC East title this year, but after Sunday’s shutout loss to the Carolina Panthers, New York has dropped to 0-3. Kansas City looks for the momentum to continue, while New York desperately looks for a “W.”
