Monday night’s matchup of the New York Giants vs Kansas City Chiefs features two teams that have played underwhelmingly this season. The Giants are coming off of just their second win of the season against the Panthers, and the Chiefs are coming off of a disastrous defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans.

New York Giants

The Giants’ win against the Panthers last week was their best defensive performance of the season. The Panthers scored just 3 points on 173 total yards and 2.8 yards per play. Additionally, the Giants sacked Carolina quarterbacks 6 times, including 2.5 by 2021 second-round pick Azeez Ojulari.

The Giants still have room to improve when in the red one on offense. They rank last in the NFL with a 45% conversion rate for touchdowns when in the red zone. In the offseason, the Giants signed tight end Kyle Rudolf who specializes in the red zone, but he is yet to score a touchdown this season.

The Giants’ season has been injury-plagued. Three of their six captains are out for the season: center Nick Gates, linebacker Blake Martinez, and safety/punt returner Jabrill Peppers. Additionally, Saquon Barkley is out on Monday night, while Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney are questionable.

The Chiefs’ disappointing season has partially stemmed from their superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes has missed opportunities for big plays. He said, “When you have some big-play opportunities down the field, you’ve got to go for it.”

Mahomes was hit in the head in the fourth quarter against the Titans but will play Monday Night. Mahomes ranks fourth in the league in passing yards and sixth in quarterback rating, but he has a league-high 9 interceptions versus 18 touchdowns.

The defense has been bad also. They have allowed 6.6 yards per play which is worst in the NFL. They allowed 27 points against the Titans last week.

Andy Reid believes that the veteran presence in the locker room is strong enough to correct fundamental mistakes. Reid said, “We just need the results. There’s not a lot I can say that hasn’t been said. … We’ve been giving away some things free and we’ve got to take care of that.”
