If the Chiefs could dream it, they were willing to try it Sunday. And at least on offense, few of those things — creativity, surprise, waiting on miracles and old-fashioned power — seemed to have a chance. Kansas City coach Todd Haley took an aggressive turn against one of the NFL’s elite teams in an attempt to lift a funk that has lasted two years and doesn’t seem to be easing any time soon. The Chiefs lost again Sunday, this time in a 27-16 beating by the New York Giants, and even in a locker room defined with newness and fresh personalities, the familiar frustration has crept back in.
