New York Giants vs Kansas City Chiefs takes place Sunday in this week 4 NFL 2013 regular season match up. Today's game will feature a team that has surprised most by starting the season with three straight wins, and another that has equally shocked fans by starting with three straight losses. The game starts at 1 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
The Chiefs have done fantastically well to get through to week 4 unscathed at 3-0. They have been impressive, and following an easy season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars who they defeated 28-2, they managed to take down the Dallas Cowboys 17-16. Last week they looked even more sure of themselves by claiming a good 26-16 win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Chiefs have done extremely well considering their offense has not been explosive in any single area, but their success has been based upon solid defensive work, complimented by an offense that has grinded out points consistently to get into winning positions.
Quarterback Alex Smith has posted 64 of 105 for 669 yards and four touchdowns. Jamaal Charles has been solid on the rush, carrying 52 times for 224 yards and two touchdowns.
The demise of the New York Giants meanwhile has shocked everyone. They were unlucky to come out on the wrong side of an extremely close and highly competitive opening game against the Dallas Cowboys, eventually losing 31-36.
They hoped to bounce back in week 2, but Peyton Manning has been in irresistible form and he orchestrated the destruction of the Giants' defense in a 23-41 loss for the New York team.
However, both of those two opening losses pale in comparison to what happened last week when they were unceremoniously taken apart by Carolina. The Giants suffered a massive blow out in that 0-38 loss, which will have embarrassed the entire team and back room staff at the Giants, and will have dropped their confidence and morale to new depths.
They need to get back on the horse quick and try and kick start their season. Only three teams have made the postseason after starting the season at 0-3 since 1990, so the Giants already have it all to do. If they lose again today it could be season over almost as soon as it's begun.
