The New York Giants will kick off their season on Thursday, and they’ll be looking to start things off with a visit from the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The Giants, who have won five of their past six games, host the Chiefs, who defeated the Broncos last week by a score of 28-27.
After losing to the Broncos in Week 1, the Giants will be looking for a first win over Kansas City since Week 1 of the 2013 season.
The New York Times has a detailed breakdown of how the Giants are trying to break down the Chiefs’ defense:There are some familiar faces from the Super Bowl: linebacker Jonathan Casillas, who was a key contributor for the Broncos, will return.
Defensive end Olivier Vernon and linebacker J.J. Watt are expected to be in attendance as well.
Kansas City’s pass rush, which was led by Chiefs cornerback Eric Berry, is expected to return as well, with defensive end Tamba Hali expected to play.
The Chiefs have lost only two games by a touchdown or fewer all season.
The last time they lost by more than that came on December 15, when they allowed the Broncos to win by two.
The Giants have won their past three matchups with Kansas City by an average of 34 points.
