Giants Beat Slumping Chiefs in OT, 12-9
The New York Giants defense rose to the occasion on Sunday, using three interceptions to spur an upset of the Kansas Chiefs, 12-9 in overtime at MetLife Stadium.
Aldrick Rosas kicked through a chip shot, game-winner with 1:57 remaining in overtime, setup by a 34-yard Eli Manning to Roger Lewis completion on 4th-and-5 from the Kansas City 36. Rosas was good on both of his field goal attempts, but missed an extra point on New York's first-quarter touchdown-run by Orleans Darkwa.
After recent criticism of the Giants' defensive effort, New York contained KC's offense and shut them out of the end zone - allowing just 3 FGs.
Run-stopper Damon 'Snacks' Harrison records an interception on a botched shovel-pass from Alex Smith to Travis Kelce.
Alex Smith did rally Kansas City for a 69-yard game-tying, field-goal-drive in the final two minutes of regulation, but again couldn't break through for a touchdown after getting into the red zone.
Eli Manning finished 19 of 35, 205 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. Darkwa paced the running game with 74 yards, while Lewis' 55-yards led all receivers.
Kelce had eight grabs for 106, and Tyreek Hill had seven catches for 68-yards for the Chiefs - who have dropped four of their last five.
The 2-8 Giants play the late-game of the Thanksgiving triple-header on Thursday (8:30).
Kansas City (6-4) will host the Bills next Sunday (1:00).
