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.

It's been a awful year for the New York Giants.

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. Using a formation out of which they had thrown the shovel pass earlier in the season, quarterback Alex Smith threw another shovel pass to tight end Travis Kelce late in the first quarter.

The Kansas City Chiefs believed their recent slump had as much to do with the strength of their schedule as any problems they were having.

The Giants took a 6-3 halftime lead.

He is the first tight end in Giants history to score a touchdown in four consecutive games, and he needs just one more touchdown to set the franchise record for most touchdowns by a rookie tight end. But Rosas missed the extra point to limit New York's lead to 6-0. The Giants took possession at the Kansas City 26.

The veteran signal-caller connected on 19-of-35 passes for 205 yards and did not commit a turnover as the Ben McAdoo's squad out-slugged stunned Kansas City. Andy Reid-coached teams were 16-2 coming off the bye week. That catch, which was made through the pass interference, was unbelievable enough to stand by its own.

The Giants snapped a three-game losing streak in their first home win of the season. Pro Football Focus says Flowers has not given up a sack since that game against the Lions.

The Chiefs are 7-1 ATS in their last eight after failing to cover and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 on the road while the Giants are 1-4 ATS in their last five overall and 1-5 ATS in their last six in week 11. So what did we expect to see at MetLife Stadium on Sunday?

Harrison Butker again converts from 31 yards out.
