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.
