Week 2 (Chiefs vs. Giants)

As the snow blew in to New York from Lambeau field, the Chiefs and Giants prepared for a death struggle to leave the Tournament of Chumpions basement...The Giants opened up the scoring early, jumping to a 17-7 lead by the start of the 2nd quarter. The Chiefs, sensing defeat, rallied to take the lead 21-17 with a couple of minutes left to go in the half. After stopping a Giants drive to regain the lead before halftime, the Chiefs struck quickly to end the half up 28-17. The second half saw an inspired Chiefs team clicking on all cylinders, carrying the momentum from the first half to a 77-50 victory, although the game wasn't that close - the Chiefs led by as many as 40 points, but the Giants were able to close the gap by recovering and scoring on 2 consecutive onside kicks. This game was an offensive coordinator's dream, with both teams combining for over 1100 yards of offense.
