It’s Been Okay. 10-7 Chiefs.
This game should be tied but Josh Brown missed a 44 yard field goal wide left at the end of the half.
Damontre Moore is having himself a great special teams day. 2 tackles and a tipped punt.
It has really been a passing day for both teams. Alex Smith is 14 of 23, for 152 and 1 TD. Eli Manning is 12 of 17 for 149 yards and 1 TD.
Smith however is using his legs as well, 5 rushes for 25 yards.
Chiefs only have 2 sacks thus far, one being a strip sack.
The defense forced(?) the Chiefs first turnover of the year on a botched snap.
Giants have 42 yards rushing thus far, a step in the right direction.
Cruz has 104 yards and a TD, with a 69 yard bomb in there.
Nicks should of had a ball down the left sideline on the final drive but it went through his hands.
Big drive came at the end of the 1st, beginning of the 2nd where the Chiefs went 98 yards on 11 plays. Charles had a 31 yard catch and run. Capped off by a TD by the Chiefs 3rd string TD.
What needs to happen:
The Giants need to get to Smith. They have zero sacks, and are letting him run around down field.
All eyes have to be on Charles as well. They are doing a great job against the run, but he is a match up nightmare out of the backfield (3 for 47).
That last drive looked so good, pick up the pace if you are the Giants, have Eli carve the secondary up.
