Grading the Giants’ 20-17 loss to the Chiefs connected Monday.
Chiefs were shabby each play connected defence and scoring lone 17 points connected them is not acceptable. First walk of the nighttime was an interception by Daniel Jones (22 of 32, 222 yards) who ne'er saw LB Willie Gay and fundamentally handed KC 7 points. What a mediocre start. RB Devontae Booker (15-60 rushing, 5-65 receiving) is not a game-changer. C Billy Price got turned astir and astir tackled Booker connected what turned into a 3-yard loss. Tough interruption for Sterling Shepard (4-25) getting wounded again. Kadarius Toney (4-26) threw a walk for 19 yards but helium does not look afloat healthy. Will Hernandez (false start) and Nate Solder (holding) were called for penalties connected back-to-back plays. Yuk.
Bottom line: Limiting Patrick Mahomes (29 of 48, 275 yards, 1 TD) and the Chiefs to 20 points should beryllium bully enough. Terrible mistake by Oshane Ximines (offside penalty) wiped retired Darnay Holmes’ interception that could person sealed the woody for the Giants. Two idiosyncratic fouls connected Tae Crowder, precise damaging. CB James Bradberry was fixed the pugnacious duty of dealing with TE Travis Kelcey (4-27) and Bradberry held up. Julian Love alertly located the shot successful the aerial successful the archetypal 4th and came up with a diving interception successful the extremity zone. Logan Ryan reached successful and forced a fumble by Kelce successful the 3rd quarter. Limiting Tyreek Hill to 94 yards connected his 12 catches is acceptable, considering his longest summation was lone 15 yards.
Dante Pettis was fixed a changeable astatine a punt instrumentality and whiffed connected his archetypal one, muffing the punt badly. He was bailed retired erstwhile teammate Keion Crossen recovered the escaped ball. Riley Dixon’s archetypal punt sailed 45 yards and retired of bounds — a footwear helium volition instrumentality each clip against the unsafe Mecole Hardman. Dixon deed a enactment thrust 34-yarder precocious successful the 4th quarter. To marque things worse, Cam Brown was called for an amerciable touching connected the play. Dixon was trying to alteration things up and was consenting to footwear immoderate disfigured kicks, though. WR Collin Johnson was deed with a taunting punishment connected the punt instrumentality team. Are you kidding?
Have to wonderment astir the clip absorption from Joe Judge — helium said his headsets crapped retired successful the archetypal fractional and arsenic a effect helium had to telephone 2 timeouts. The discourtesy had nary timeouts to enactment with successful the last minute, making things much difficult. Good telephone by Judge eschewing the tract extremity and going for it connected fourth-and-1 connected the Kansas City 1-yard line. Judge has got to purge the mistakes retired of his team. Patrick Graham intelligibly wanted to unit the Chiefs to enactment for their points by giving up tiny chunks and was mostly successful. It is increasing progressively hard for violative coordinator Jason Garrett to navigate done each these wide receiver injuries.
