The Kansas City Chiefs lost in overtime to the Giants 12-9 in New York on Sunday afternoon, dropping their record to 6-4. Playing a team that entered week with a 1-8 record and a defense that had allowed 82 points in the last two games, KC managed just three field goals and needed a drive against a soft prevent defense to force overtime.
Alex Smith was 27-for-40 with two interceptions and no touchdowns. The Chiefs turned it over three times, leading to nine points. Harrison Butker was responsible for all of the Chiefs offense, making three field goal attempts. The rookie kicker has made 22 straight kicks, matching Pete Stoyanovich (1997-98) and Ryan Succop (2011) for the franchise record.
Kareem Hunt was limited to just 73 yards on 18 carries as teams have caught on to a run game that is following a banged up offensive line.
The Giants used a 10-play, 77 yard drive after holding the Chiefs on their overtime possession to get in position for a game winning field goal. On 4th and 5 from the Chiefs 36, Eli Manning hit Roger Lewis at the two, who made a sliding catch. Two plays later, NY kicked the game winner.
