New York Giants @ Kansas City Chiefs
Odds: Kansas City -10.5, over/under 52.5
Weather: 39 degrees, 10% chance of precipitation, 2 MPH winds
Fresh off their second win of the season, the 2-5 New York Giants head to Arrowhead Stadium to take on the 3-4 Kansas City Chiefs, who have lost two of their last three games.
New York is led by quarterback Daniel Jones, who is averaging 281.7 passing yards per game with 5 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also leads the team in rushing with 229 yards and has added another two touchdowns on the ground. New York has been ravaged by injuries to multiple, most notably running back Saquon Barkley. Devontae Booker has filled in for him, rushing for 156 yards on 49 carries with two touchdowns.
Rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney leads the team in receiving with 317 yards, while Sterling Shepard averages more yards per game with 74.8. Shepard and Darius Slayton have missed three games, while prized free agent Kenny Golladay and tight end Evan Engram have missed two games. Shepard will be available to play after missing last week, while Golladay is out another game. Toney is questionable and will be a game time decision. Dante Pettis has stepped up the last two games with 10 receptions for 87 yards and a touchdown.
Kansas City is having a rough season and All-Pro quarterback Patrick Mahomes has struggled a bit. Mahomes is still averaging 330.3 yards passing per game with 18 touchdowns, but he’s also committed eleven total turnovers. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce are still the focal point of the offense. Hill has 52 receptions for 641 yards and five touchdowns, while Kelce has 45 receptions for 553 yards and four touchdowns. Mecole Hardman has added 289 yards on 30 receptions with one touchdown.
Clyde Edwards-Helaire is on injured reserve so Darrel Williams and Jerrick McKinnon have had to shoulder the load. Williams has rushed for 181 yards on 52 carries. Mahomes is second on the team in rushing with 219 yards.
If Kadarius Toney is forced to miss the game, Dante Pettis should see more action and could be a sneaky play against a bad Kansas City defense.
