The New York Giants wanted to prove everyone wrong that they didn't quit and the Kansas City Chiefs wanted to embarrass a horrendous Giants team off a bye week. On a fourth-and-5 play at the Chiefs 36 late in overtime, Eli Manning threw a 34-yard pass down the left sideline and Roger Lewis Jr. made a one-handed sliding catch. It set up the game-winning 23-yard field goal made by Aldrick Rosas in a Giants 12-9 victory over the Chiefs.

This is possibly one of the upsets of the year in the NFL. Eli Manning completed 19-of-35 passes for 205 yards. Roger Lewis Jr. caught three passes for 55 yards receiving. In the second quarter, Orleans Darkwa scored on a 1-yard rush (missed extra point). Darkwa finished with 74 rushing yards on 20 carries and a touchdown.

With the game tied at 6 in the fourth-quarter, Alex Smith threw an interception to Janoris Jenkins before the two-minute warning. Rosas made a 26-yard field goal for the Giants. When Kansas City got the ball back, Alex Smith threw another interception to Jenkins, but Jenkins was called for a penalty.

Smith made a couple of key pass plays after that, but the Chiefs would settle for a 23-yard field goal by Harrison Butker. Butker made two other field goals in the game from 31 yards out twice.

Smith completed 27-of-40 passes for 230 yards and two interceptions. Travis Kelce completed 8 catches for 109 yards receiving. Tyreek Hill caught 7 passes for 68 yards receiving. Kareem Hunt rushed for 73 yards on 18 carries.

Is it possible the Chiefs decide to bench Alex Smith for Patrick Mahomes next week? The Chiefs will host the Buffalo Bills (5-4) next Sunday and the Giants will go on the road to face the Washington Redskins (4-6) on Thanksgiving Night.
