THIRD QUARTER: Giants 6, Chiefs 3

Rookie kicker Aldrick Rosas nailed the game-winning field goal after a circus catch by wide receiver Roger Lewis put the Giants at the goal line on a huge fourth down gamble. Rosas atoned for his missed extra point earlier in the game by hitting a 26-yard field goal with 1:41 left in regulation to give the Chiefs the 9-6 lead. That catch, which was made through the pass interference, was unbelievable enough to stand by its own.

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.

In fact, they looked more like the defense of previous year, intercepting the ball three times, twice off Alex Smith - who had just one interception entering the game - and another off Travis Kelce as the Chiefs tried to get creative.

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.

Gaines appeared to interfere with Lewis, but a flag wasn't thrown. Manning also needs five more games to match Hall of Fame DE Michael Strahan's franchise record of 216 games played in a Giants uniform.

THIRD QUARTER: Giants 6, Chiefs 3

Kansas City responded with a field goal that capped off a 15-play, 61-yard drive.

The Giants would win on a chip-shot field goal. It set up the Giants' first overtime game since 2015 against the Jets.

That set the Chiefs up at the 33 and they drove for a 31-yard field goal by Harrison Butker to tie it at 6 with 13:30 left in the fourth.

Ben McAdoo promised fans a show, and he provided one for them by turning to the circus section of the playbook. That last one proved to be one gimmick too many, though, as Shane Vereen's pass for Engram in the end zone on first-and-10 from the Chiefs' 18 was intercepted by safety Daniel Sorensen.

Still, they took an improbable lead in the second quarter after Damon Harrison wrangled in Smith's shovel pass that went off the hands of tight end Travis Kelce on Kansas City's 26-yard-line.

Saints beat Redskins 34-31 in OT, continue 8 game winning streak
In the third quarter, with a 4-point lead, the Redskins surprised the Saints with a fake punt deep in their own territory. Mark Ingram scored the only touchdown for the Saints in the first half, on a 36-yard run, tying the game at 10-10.
