The Chiefs and Giants square off this Sunday in their week 4 match-up. New York has been battling age and injuries along the offensive line since training camp.
All of their issues have carried into the regular season, surrendering 11 sacks in three games leading to the team’s first 0-3 start since 1996. If the Giants want to avoid going 0-4, they’re going to have to put together a unit within the next few days to stop the league’s best pass rush in the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the NY Daily News, the Giants inactive players this week are: OUT: C David Baas (neck), G Chris Snee (hip), CB Corey Webster (hip), TE Adrien Robinson (foot).

Horrible news, unless you’re a Chiefs fan. Chiefs outside linebacker, and NFL sacks leader, Justin Houston, will be facing his third rookie tackle of the season when he faces the Giants Justin Pugh this Sunday.
The Giants had a tall task in trying to come into Arrowhead to get a win from the Chiefs, even before the news of all these inactive players. Three of the Giants best offensive lineman are not going to play, meaning the Chiefs front seven should be in Eli Manning‘s face all afternoon.
Kansas City should, and will, take this Giants team very serious. After all, the team across from the ball from the Chiefs gets payed too. Considering the circumstances, I like the Chiefs in this game even more than I did before.
