Eli Manning threw for 292 yards and three touchdowns in a 27-16 win over the on Sunday, before leaving in the fourth quarter with what he described as a bruised heel. The Chiefs have now lost eight regular season games in a row to fall to 0-4 on the season.
Manning threw two scoring passes to Steve Smith, who finished 134 yards on 11 catches. He then threw a pass into the flat to Hakeen Nicks who turned it into a 54 yards score.
In the final minutes, Matt Cassel threw a couple of short scoring passes that made score closer than what the game would appear. The Chiefs have now lost 27 of their last 29.
It all went down hill early when Jamaal Charles fumbled the opening kickoff and Manning struck quick as the Chiefs stumbled again on offense, especially in third down plays. After going 0 for 11 in third-down conversions the week before against Philadelphia, the Chiefs were 2 for 15.
