The New York Giants played the Kansas City Chiefs tonight in a Week Eight matchup of Monday Night Football. The Giants traveled to Kansas City and came away with a loss in a game that finished with a final score of 20-17.

The Giants fall to 2-6 after a hard-fought game that saw them take a 17-14 lead in the fourth quarter. The Chiefs moved the ball into field goal range twice and Harrison Butker ultimately willed his team to a victory with a go-ahead field goal in the final two minutes of the game.

Key stats and takeaways

New York Giants

  • Devontae Booker – 60 rushing yards, 65 receiving yards

Kansas City Chiefs

  • Patrick Mahomes – 275 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT

The Giants got a few of their playmakers back on the field for tonight’s game, only to see them leave the field once again with new injuries. Sterling Shepard left the game with a quad injury and Kadarius Toney played through a hand injury he suffered tonight. Dante Pettis also picked up an injury, leaving the Giants short-staffed at wide receiver once again.

Daniel Jones and the Giants offense had a better performance than they have in past weeks. However, costly mistakes and a failure to execute down the stretch handed the game away to Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

With the trade deadline looming, some big decisions could come soon regarding New York Giants front office, player personnel, and coaches.
