Secondly, the Giants are a team that has underachieved thus far, this season. I don't expect that trend to continue & would not be surprised if they get it turned around shortly. Their D-Line in particular has underachieved, but they still have a lot of talented players there, and the Giants interior D-Line does have the potential to overwhelm and devastate the Chiefs interior O-Line.
Thirdly, Alex Smith hasn't fared too well against the Giants recently and had his worst outing last year against the Giants.
But, if you wish to ignore history as well as any potential red flags, be my guest.
Hey, I'd love it if the Chiefs played one of the best games in their history and waxed the Giants all over the field. But, knowing what I know, I'll believe it when I see it.

Coaching Against Old Team on Road
Season After Leaving Since 1996
Result 2013 Andy Reid Chiefs at Eagles ? 2006 Dick Jauron Bills at Lions Lost 2003 Steve Mariucci Lions at 49ers Lost 1999 Mike Holmgren Seahawks at Packers Won 1997 Bill Parcells Jets at Patriots Lost 1996 Ted Marchibroda Ravens at Colts Lost
History not on our side
philly by 14. i dont think we can score more then 17 and we will need about 32 to win. awefull secondary and we rarely pressure qb.
we esentially drafted a QBOTF in Smith..we gave picks for him..OMG!!!!!
The 2006 Bills finished 7-9 (3-5 on the road), 2003 Lions; 5-11 (0-8 OTR), 1997 Jets; 9-7 (4-4 OTR), 1996 Ravens; 4-12 (0-8 OTR). That's a combined road record of 12-25 for those teams that lost in your chart. They weren't just losing to their coaches' former teams. They were losing to lots of teams because they weren't very good. We don't know if this Chiefs team is any good or not, yet, because they have only played two games so far. But what other teams did with other coaches has nothing to do with tonight's game. All that matters is how good the Chiefs and the Eagles are.
