Game Notes:
"This was a game where the Giants needed some things to come together. In the first half Eli Manning had two sacks on him, but the offensive line wasn't showing the kind of breakdown that they did last week. That kept me from having the nervous breakdown that I had then. Manning had thrown one touchdown and had no interceptions and the Giants were picking up some yardage on the ground for a change. There was even a partially blocked field goal.
It was disappointing that Josh Brown missed a field goal for the second time in two weeks or the score would have been tied. Instead, the Chiefs were up 10-7, but I felt we had seen the best they had to offer and just a glimmer of maybe what the Giants could do.
The halftime TV report annoyed me as they made sure to point out that Kansas City doesn't turn over the ball. That came from both Jimmy Johnson and surprisingly Michael Strahan as well. Weren't they watching the game at all? The Giants already had one turnover and they caused two more before the game was over.
Anyway, I was wrong too in my thoughts. I had already seen the best of what the Giants could do as they scored no more points in the second half. Manning threw two interceptions. There were no more missed field goals, but none were attempted. Special teams allowed a touchdown runback on a punt return, and the defense let the Chiefs score two more touchdowns. It was all very disappointing, and sadly, the Giants are now 0-4.

Game Notes:
"What we saw here today was that the Giants are trying to manufacture some kind of work around to function around a bad offensive line, and for awhile it was sort of working. The defense also was holding up in the first half. Who would have thought that the Giants would have more yards rushing than the Chiefs even with them having more attempts at that point. Quarterback Alex Smith ran past the Giants defense a few times, but running back Jamaal Charles was going nowhere averaging 2 yards a carry.
The one telling point was that the Giants were only 1 for 6 on their 3rd down efficiency. The score was almost tied except for a missed field goal, but the Giants were getting the ball to start off the second half and as a fan your hopes were up. Unfortunately all the Giants could manage by the end of this game was putting a dent in the Kansas City Chiefs almost perfect record. They committed three turnovers where they had had none and Alex Smith committed his first interceptions of the season.
The Chiefs will have to live with those dents as much as it will bother them, because on the plus side they scored more points than in any other game this season and they are 4-0. Andy Reid continues his march through the NFC East and has only to beat Washington to have a perfect winning score against them."
