Chiefs vs. Giants live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Monday Night Football’ game


As they enter their Week 8 contest against the Giants, the Chiefs are in unfamiliar territory. They sit at 3-4 and are under .500 for the third time this season, the most in a year under coach Andy Reid.

They also sit in last place in the AFC West and are coming off a 27-3 loss to the Titans last time out. To make matters worse, they’ve given up the second-most yards of any team this season and rank fifth-worst in points allowed.

Luckily for them, they’re going up against a Giants team that will be without several key offensive weapons: wide receivers Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay and running back Saquon Barkley. Wide receivers Darius Slayton, John Ross and Sterling Shepard are all listed as questionable.

This is the 31st time Reid has gone up against the Giants, almost all of that from his tenure with the Eagles, and he’s 15-15 all time against them. He has taken them on once since his arrival in Kansas City; in 2017, a 12-9 overtime loss in East Rutherford.

But that was a Patrick Mahomes-less Chiefs team. This time, Mahomes and Co. will try to capitalize on the Giants’ injuries. They’ll also look to get the ball in the hands of tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill.

A win for the Chiefs will get them back to .500 and move them into a tie for third in the division with the Broncos. A win for the Giants will put them at 3-5 and into a tie for second in the NFC East with the Eagles.
