After he put the Giants ahead 9-6 instead of 10-6 with 1:38 remaining in the game, New York's solid defense broke in the final portion of regulation, allowing the Chiefs to drive down for a game-tying field goal to force overtime.

Running back Orleans Darkway pounded the ball in from one-yard out to give NY the early lead.

On the other side, the under is 6-2 in the Giants' last eight home games, is 7-3 in their last 10 games following an ATS loss, and is 5-0 in their last five games in Week 11.

The 2-8 Giants play the late-game of the Thanksgiving triple-header on Thursday (8:30).

The Giants came into the season as a favourite to do some damage in the NFC but they have easily been the league's biggest disappointment as they have just the one victory this season, which came on the road against the Broncos on Monday night of all places, and they are winless so far playing at MetLife Stadium. Chiefs K Harrison Butker's three field goals gave him 22 straight conversions, the fifth-longest streak in franchise history.
