Chiefs Trail Giants, 6-3, at Halftime

Posted Nov 19, 2017

Kansas City is locked in a defensive struggle against New York

The Kansas City Chiefs are trailing the New York Giants, 6-3, in a defensive struggle on a windy Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium.

Chiefs’ kicker Harrison Butker was responsible for Kansas City’s lone score of the half, connecting on a 31-yard field goal. It was Butker’s 20th consecutive successful kick.

Quarterback Alex Smith completed 12 of 19 passes for 96 yards in the half, finding tight end Travis Kelce five times for 64 yards.

New York took the initial lead when running back Orleans Darkwa punched in a 1-yard touchdown early in the second quarter, though kicker Aldrick Rosas’ extra point attempt sailed wide right.

The Giants were threatening to score earlier in the game with some trickery on a halfback pass, but safety Daniel Sorensen picked off Giants’ running back Shane Vereen’s pass at the goal line. It was Sorensen’s first interception of the season.

Catch the second half of action on CBS (KCTV5 local) and 101.1 The Fox.
