Entering their Week 8 competition against the Giants, the Chiefs find themselves in uncharted territory. They sit at 3-4 and are under .500 for the third time this season, the most in a year under coach Andy Reid.
They are also in last place in the AFC West and are coming off a 27-3 loss to the Titans last time out. To make matters worse, they have given up the second-most yards of any team this season and rank fifth-worst in points allowed.

Fortunately for them, they will face a Giants team that will lack several key offensive weapons: wide receivers Kadarius Toney and Kenny Golladay and running back Saquon Barkley. Wide receivers Darius Slayton, John Ross and Sterling Shepard are listed as questionable.
This is the 31st time Reid has faced the Giants, almost all of that since his tenure with the Eagles, and he is 15-15 all-time against them. He has taken them once since his arrival in Kansas City; in 2017, a 12-9 overtime loss at East Rutherford.

But that was a Chiefs team without Patrick Mahomes. This time, Mahomes and Co. will try to capitalize on the Giants’ injuries. They will also be looking to get the ball into the hands of tight end Travis Kelce and wide receiver Tyreek Hill.
A win for the Chiefs will bring them back to .500 and move them to a tie for third place in the division with the Broncos. A win for the Giants would put them 3-5 and a tie for second in the NFC East with the Eagles.
