Chiefs vs. Giants Recap: How the Chiefs went 4-0

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Week 4 in the NFL is underway and the Kansas City Chiefs have improved their record to 4-0 against the visiting New York Giants.

Kansas City came into this game on a three game win streak and will head home tonight after decimating the struggling Giants. The Chiefs were able to control both sides of the ball, keeping Eli Manning and company to 7 points on the day. The defense has shown the ability to close games out against offenses, and the offense is putting points on the board.

The Chiefs are playing the best football this team has played in over a decade, which incidentally, is the last time they were able to start a season 4-0. Alex Smith, despite throwing two picks, was still able to control the game with his quick thinking and even used his legs to help extend drives. The biggest surprise of the game is the chemistry between Smith and 3rd string tight end Sean McGrath as he had five catches for 65 yards and a touchdown, and becoming a trusted target for Smith.

Linebacker Justin Houston the NFL’s sack leader, was held sack-less on the day; however Tamba Hali was able to pick up two sacks and goes to show offensive lines if you cover one, beware the other. The Dexter McCluster was able to take a punt return 89 yards for a score which helped seal the game for the Chiefs, and two late game touchdowns to Dwyane Bowe and Jamaal Charles put the icing on the cake.

Final score Kansas City Chiefs 31 New York Giants 7

    Hell yes.

    I wouldn’t say we look unstoppable because of the fumble right after a giants TO in their own territory. Then an interception when we were in their territory again. Both those drives needed to end in points on the board. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited, but we have to be better on offense. Still can’t argue too much with 4-0, I’m nit-picking.

    Go Chiefs

    • RepOurChiefs

      I agree. Unstoppable is pretty strong right now. We are winning yes..denver looks unstoppable. Its not nit-picking. We are 4-0 and thats more than enough to be excited about but then you pan the denver game and reality hits that there is still more work to do. Go Chiefs.!

  • Trent Taylor

    The offense needs to come out of the gate quicker in the first half. Its gonna bite them in the ass against high powered offenses like Denvers. On to Tennessee. Beat the Titans!

    • tm1946

      Titans may not have their starting QB for sunday. Carried off the field with hip injury.

      • micah stephenson

        He is out for 2 or 3 weeks. Titans are starting Ryan Fitzpatrick from bills.

    • RepOurChiefs

      Indeed. I see no holes in denver. Offense striking hard fast and often. Defense getting to the ball and playing mean. Special teams making plays. 4th qtr heroics are great but I dont want to be on the other end of the 31-7. Off needs to pull it together quicker. Lets keep this rolling and take the lead of this division. GO GO GO CHIEFS!

  • tm1946

    Enjoying it all. Just cannot figure out the 4th qtr offense, where is it the first three qtrs., better yet – Hey guys, it is easier if you generate some offense before fan’s hearts stop beating.

  • Mark Bustamante

    Chiefs are playing good football but it will be interesting to see how they handle adversity if and when things start to not go their way! But I love the KC CHIEFS!! Go Chiefs!!!

    • tm1946

      Seems like the offense wallows in adversity the first 3 qtrs. of most games.

  • Joe Myers

    Yes now we have to take care of the titans

  • Danny W

    Glad to see Smith finally let it go. I’m encouraged. I honestly believe on any given Sunday we could win the game. Something I haven’t felt in a really really long time.

    • micah stephenson

      I knew we wud totally stomp this team. I even felt like the score wud b 31-7 and it was.

  • Jim Harper

    It is way too early to call the Chiefs unstoppable. That is equally true of the Broncos. They have yet to play anybody that is playoff material either. As for the Chiefs not having much offense until the 4th quarter that is very typical. Teams do tend to wear down in the 4th and therefore that is when your running game picks up speed. Also it is often in the 2nd half after adjustments are being made that the offense starts making gains. I know it is hard to trust after all the years of the Chiefs being mismanaged, but that is no longer the case. Andy will handle it. There is nothing we can offer up to help that Andy has not already seen and addressed. So just kick back and enjoy having winning football in KC again. Now is our time to have fun.

  • Phillip Maxwell

    Unstoppable? Denver looks unstoppable, we look relevant for the first time in a decade, we look like contenders, we look like a team that teams will fear but, unstoppable?

    • micah stephenson

      Lol. Lol. Unstoppable might b a bit much. Lol. We are good.

  • chiefridgy

    Chiefs need to get the offense in synch.
