Pro Football Network: Chiefs 35, Giants 24

Ben Rolfe writes: "There is every chance this matchup sees the Giants become a sacrificial lamb to an angry Chiefs team. Kansas City was just humiliated by the Titans. Furthermore, their shot at a bye in the AFC playoffs hangs by a thread given their four losses. Kansas City’s defense should give Jones and the Giants a chance to cover the spread, but the Chiefs will win the game."

Sportsnaut: Chiefs 24, Giants 20

Matt Johnson writes: "A month ago, everyone would have forecasted a blowout when the Giants and Kansas City Chiefs met on Monday Night Football. With Patrick Mahomes suffering a head injury and the Chiefs falling apart long before that, there’s a feeling of unpredictability. Kansas City’s talent should still win out, but a Giants’ victory shouldn’t surprise anyone."

Fansided: Chiefs 36, Giants 30

Matt Lombardo writes: "Daniel Jones proved Sunday afternoon against the Carolina Panthers that he can withstand an onslaught of pressure and still be effective from the pocket, even without some of his most dangerous offensive weapons. It’s difficult to envision Jones, even with a full complement of weapons, being able to out-duel Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. However, Mahomes’ availability for Monday night remains in doubt, after taking a brutal hit to the head Sunday against the Titans, and the Chiefs’ defense is surrendering 410 yards per game. Look for the Giants to be able to move the football effectively, but if Mahomes is healthy, come up just short in shootout fashion."

Teddy Ricketson writes: "The Chiefs have to bounce back in this game. The alarms aren’t fully sounding, but the red light is going around. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes was banged up in the win but passed the concussion protocol. This may be the game the Chiefs need to reset and I think they halt the Giants and keep their win streak to one game." Chiefs will beat Giants in Week 8

Art Stapleton writes: "It's hard to fathom how the Giants go to Arrowhead and beat Patrick Mahomes in prime time. This is a gut check spot, and the Chiefs are the AFC's best for a reason. A measuring stick, for sure, and a game that'll provide experience to help in the second half."
