Last year, the Giants played on “Monday Night Football” and lost a close match against the Super Bowl Champions. Could history repeat itself in week 8 of the 2021 NFL season?
The Giants play again Monday night and will face one of the preseason Super Bowl favorites. However, his season has not gone according to plan.
The home team has posted just a 3-4 record despite reaching Super Bowl 2021 and falling to the Bucs. If you want to get back in the playoff race, this is your chance to do it.
The Chiefs will have the advantage of playing in front of their home crowd in this one, but they are coming off an embarrassing 27-3 loss to the Titans. That marked the fewest points a team led by Patrick Mahomes had scored in their NFL career, so the Chiefs have some important corrections to make.
His game against the Giants will represent his first chance to come back. track again.
Here’s everything you need to know about ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” game for Week 8, including start time and more.
Who plays tonight on ‘Monday Night Football’?
- Match: Giants at Chiefs
- Location: Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
The Chiefs will host the Giants on “Monday Night Football” in Week 8. The two teams are coming off opposite results in Week 7.
The Chiefs were embarrassed, scoring three points and losing 24 to the Titans. The Giants triumphed, holding the Panthers at three points and outscoring them by 22.
How will the two teams fare this week? This looks like an easier matchup for the Chiefs, so Patrick Mahomes and company could be ready for a correct game. Of course, Mahomes has struggled at times this year and has thrown nine interceptions. That’s tied for the most in the league with Zach Wilson.
The Chiefs, in general, have struggled with turnovers and that has hampered their usually powerful offense. They’ll have to be more careful on the ball in this one against a Giants defense that features James Bradberry at the corner and a solid defensive line led by Leonard Williams.
The New York offensive will be the unit to watch in this. Daniel Jones has been without Saquon Barkley and three of his top receivers, including Kenny Golladay, Sterling Shepard and Kadarius Toney, in recent weeks. They played well against the Panthers despite those absences.
Will the pass receivers come out again? It seems like at least a couple of receivers have a chance to play, so the Chiefs and their low-range defense will have a lot of work ahead of them.
