Giants hanging in early against Chiefs

After the Chiefs put together an 11-play, 98-yard drive that led to the game’s first touchdown on Sunday in Kansas City, the winless Giants looked a little vulnerable, to say the least.

Then, on the ensuing possession, the Giants responded with a big play in the passing game, the sort of highlight they can create when their offense is clicking.

On the second play of the drive, Eli Manning found Victor Cruz down the right sideline for a 69-yard touchdown to even the score at seven.

Since then, the teams have exchanged turnovers. But the Giants, who desperately need a win, have fought to a draw thus far. For New York, this is progress.
