I really want to have some hope heading into this weekend?s matchup with the Chiefs. But I cannot reasonably sit here and see how the Giants are going to rise up to the occasion on the road against a 3-0 team with a very good defense. It?s not like the Chiefs are this all-world team, but they?re flying high after last year?s 2-14 campaign. Plus, every team right now is looking like a challenge for the G-Men. What I do want to see is a close game in which the Giants actually make a few plays and are not blown out of the water by early in the third quarter. There is so much that this teams needs to work on that it is impossible to correct everything this weekend. Who knows? Maybe they?ll surprise us and finally wake up, play with some passion and make things interesting. But even if that?s the case, getting a win this week will be tough. Again though, let?s just hope for a somewhat competitive game of football. Chiefs 24, Giants 20

Kel Dansby: It's a given that the Giants won't go winless and the Chiefs wont go undefeated. So why not have both of those possibilities end this week? The Giants are feeling a lot of pressure and their backs are against the wall...again. If there's any fight left in this Giants team it will come out this weekend and they'll make a statement. I look for a 4th qtr comeback victory. Giants 28, Chiefs 24

Tom Uddo: I looked at this game at the start of the season and thought it would be a cake-walk for the Giants. This team is now winless on the season after three weeks and are playing worse each week. Their offense was anemic last week against a beaten up Panthers secondary and their defense was picked apart by Cam Newton. The undefeated Chiefs and QB Alex Smith have been flawless so far through the season, throwing for over 600 yards without an interception and RB Jamaal Charles is a game changer. Even worse; Kansas City has possibly the best defensive line in the entire NFL and after Eli Manning was sacked seven times last week against Carolina, it wouldn't shock me if the Chiefs don't take Manning down 5+ times again. This team is falling apart, and while I am always looking on the positive side of things when it comes to the teams that I cover, I can't see the Giants leaving Arrowhead Stadium with their first win of the season. Chiefs 24, Giants 17

The Giants will travel to Kansas City today for their clash with the undefeated Chiefs tomorrow afternoon. The team is banding together in the quest to end their dismal start. They know what they need to do. Now it's just the act of getting it done.

"When we look back at it last week we just know that we simply did not get the job done," said CB Prince Amukamara. "Carolina outplayed us and we just have to learn from the game, like we did, and get prepared to play next week. That?s how it is in the NFL, that?s what I?m learning, is that there?s a good team every week and our job is to try and go 1-0 every week."

S Ryan Mundy is still looking for his first win in Blue. He knows the drill, too. It's all about individuals making the sacrifice for the good of the team.

2011 is an offensive extravaganza thus far. 44 300+ yard passing performances thus far and counting. A record by far. Here are some other tidbits:

Eight teams this year are averaging 400 or more yards of total offense, the highest such total through the first four games since 1970.

TOM BRADY (1,553 passing yards) of the New England Patriots and DREW BREES (120 completions) of the New Orleans Saints lead the league in passing yards and completions, respectively.

The Giants scored three times in the fourth quarter to overcome a 10-point deficit vs the Arizona Cardinals this afternoon in Glendale, winning in thrilling fashion, 31-27.

The Giants were aided by a late-game call by the officials in which they deemed WR Victor Cruz had given himself up after catching an Eli Manning pass. Cruz actually stumbled and fell to the ground untouched. He rose from the turf, leaving the football to a group of Cardinal defenders - a clear fumble that would have given Arizona the ball and the game.

The officials ruled the play dead and therefore non-reviewable. On the next play, Eli hit Hakeem Nicks for 29-yard score to take the lead with under three minutes remaining.

Here is what we culled from the annals of the Arizona Cardinals' media vault. Just about everything you need to know, or want to know about this longstanding NFL franchise who host our Giants tomorrow afternoon at 4:15pm...

The Cardinals once hailed from Chicago before moving to St. Louis in 1960, where they played in Busch Stadium until 1987. They moved west to Phoenix in 1988 and officially changed their name to the Arizona Cardinals in 1994.

Here are out three keys to Giant win in Phoenix this weekend:

Shooting for special teams? success two weeks in a row: The Cardinals have been outstanding on special teams in the first three games of the season. A.J Jefferson and LaRod Stephens-Howling are both averaging 30 yards per kickoff return.

Lawrence Tynes has five touchbacks on the season and will need to improve on his distance in a stadium where the ball does not travel well. Tynes needs to consistently hit six yards deep into the end zone to do all he can to prevent Jefferson or Stephens-Howling from bringing them out and giving their high powered offense good field position.

The Giants made the coordinators available tot he media media yesterday, and for once none of them were under fire. Defensive coordinator Perry Fewell's defense has been stonewalling teams on big third and fourth down situations.

Special teams have settled down for Tom Quinn. The new kickoff rules have helped minimize exposure, but the influx of speed and the changing faces have also assisted in righting the ship.

from Andy Furman:

The Giants will have confidence coming into Arizona this weekend.

Gone are the memories of sloppy play in Weeks 1 & 2. Fresh in their mind is the collective team effort of a quality win on the road vs a respected opponent that was in the playoffs last season. What kind of effort will the Giants deliver. And more importantly for this blogger, will the inconsistent coaching from the past few years get more consistent and put the players in situations to succeed?

Some quotes from both the Giants and Cardinals camps yesterday:

Giants' head coach Tom Coughlin on how the offensive line has progressed:?Communication, continuity, and reaction time. I would say that it is the overall feeling that people do understand the schemes and what we are trying to do no matter how quickly they have to make adjustments. That is where the progress is.

Coughlin on how do he plans to use DB Prince Amukamara when he returns:?We have to put him on the field and figure out what he can do?He is not going to just walk out there. That didn?t work last time, remember?

from Sr. Columnist Jon Wagner:

An ugly, turnover-filled football game was a thing of beauty for the previously struggling New York Giants.

On a night when the Giants (2-2) paid homage to the team?s new Ring of Honor at halftime, Big Blue appropriately got back to the old-time basics of Giant football with a dominant defensive performance and a solid running gameduring a 17-3 victory over the Chicago Bears (3-1) at the New Meadowlands Stadium before a national television audience on NBC? Sunday Night Football.

Overcoming three turnovers and an unproductive offense in the first half, the Giants used ten sacks ? including an NFL record nine in the first half -- and a rushing game led by running back Ahmad Bradshaw (game-high 129 yards on 23 carries, 1 TD), to ultimately take control over what had been the last remaining unbeaten team in the NFC.

The Giants will host the undefeated Bears tonight at the New Meadowlands Stadium in a nationally-televised event.

Although the Giants are team that appears to screeching off the rails and the Bears are finding ways to win each week, oddsmakers have made the Giants a three-point favorite.

That may seem ridiculous to some, but if you believe in the law of averages, it makes perfect sense.
