Thanks mainly to a goal-line stop of Larry Johnson, one of the worst defensive efforts you'll ever see by the Chiefs, a turnover late in the half, and a Jay Feely field goal attempt that was evidently influenced by divine intervention, the Giants lead the Chiefs 10-3 at halftime.

Tiki Barber scored on a 41-yard touchdown run in the 2nd quarter because the Chiefs outright refused to tackle him. Those who were in a position to do so were physically unable. Those who were not in a position to tackle him made very little attempt to get themselves in such a position. Safety Greg Wesley outright quit on the play, and the only possible forgivable reason for that is if he was just in awe at how many other teammates gave up on the play, too.


CBS is to be applauded for the complete lack of sleigh bells in the broadcast. I've gained an all new appreciation for Phil Simms and Jim Nantz.
