Chiefs escape the Giants' trap with a go ahead field goal late in the fourth quarter 20-17
Kansas City- The Chiefs pulled out a win late in the fourth quarter against the New York Giants.
After coming off a blowout loss last week, the Chiefs wanted to get back on track to their winning ways and what better way to do that with taking your frustrations on a struggling Giants' team. On the Chiefs' opening drive, they got a little too cute near the endzone and once again, Patrick Mahomes threw an interception to start the game. Kansas City's defense picked off Daniel Jones on the ensuing possession. Mahomes converted a six-yard touchdown pass to Tyreek Hill to strike gold first, 7-0.
That was short lived, because the Giants went down the field and answer the call with a touchdown of their own to tie up the game, 7-7. Derrick Gore added to the Chiefs score with a blast to the endzone to extend their lead 14-7. Kansas City walked into the locker room with a 14-10 lead.
The Chiefs' offense was shutdown in the second half. Mahomes had trouble figuring out the Giants' defense and struggled to get the ball down the field. At the start of the fourth, it looked like the Giants was going to pull off the upset with a 17-14 lead, however "Mahomes" magic started to happen. He drove his team down the field for a potential score. In the redzone, the Chiefs struggled to punch the ball in the endzone and had to settle for a field goal, 17-17.
With under three minutes left in regulation, the Chiefs kicked a go ahead field goal to take the lead 20-17.
