New York Giants vs. Kansas City Chiefs: Breaking down Sunday's game

It was a struggle for both clubs and it took overtime to decide the issue.

Lewis made a spectacular diving catch as he was being pulled down by a Chiefs corner to haul in the third-and-5 play.

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. The Chiefs have totaled fewer than 325 yards in three of their last four games, and they've committed three turnovers in the past two contests after just one giveaway in their first seven games.

Alex Smith did rally Kansas City for a 69-yard game-tying, field-goal-drive in the final two minutes of regulation, but again couldn't break through for a touchdown after getting into the red zone.

It seemed as if Jenkins iced the win when he picked off Smith for a second time with 1:21 left, but he was flagged for pass interference on the play.

Aldrick Rosas kicked through a chip shot, game-winner with 1:57 remaining in overtime, setup by a 34-yard Eli Manning to Roger Lewis completion on 4th-and-5 from the Kansas City 36.

Three interceptions helped the Giants to their second win of the season. Engram dropped the fourth-and-9 pass from Manning, which would have been short of the first down anyway.

Quarterback Alex Smith's shovel pass to Travis Kelce was intercepted after a Giants defender hit Kelce, jarring the ball loose.

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. They also tried some rare trickery on their first drive, which included a fake punt that saw running back Shane Vereen's pass intended for tight end Evan Engram picked off by safety Daniel Sorensen. But Rosas missed the extra point to limit New York's lead to 6-0. Jason Pierre-Paul drilled Kelce to dislodge the ball and it fell into the hands of defensive tackle Damon Harrison.
