The Giants came out and played a respectable first half today in Kansas City to the point where they were in position to tie the game at the half. But Josh Brown hooked a 44-yard FG attempt to the left with 0:06 remaining and the Giants would get no closer the rest of the game.
21 unanswered Kansas City points in the second half, including an 89-yard punt return for a TD by Dexter McCluster, buried the Giants’ hopes for an upset victory at Arrowhead Stadium this afternoon.
The final score was 31-7, and the loss dropped the Giants to 0-4 on the season – their worst start i a non-strike year since 1979.
