Upon Further Review: Seven Quick Facts Following the Chiefs’ Loss on Sunday
November 20, 2017 05:52 PM | Matt McMullen
The Kansas City Chiefs fell to the New York Giants, 12-9, in overtime on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Despite the loss, the Chiefs still own a two-game lead in the AFC West with six weeks to play.

Here are some quick facts following the loss.

1. The Chiefs played their first overtime game of the season

It had been almost a full calendar year since Kansas City last took part in an extra period - way back in Week 12 of last season at Denver. That was one of two overtime victories for the Chiefs last year.

Kansas City is 2-2 in overtime games since 2013. 2. The Giants tallied a pair of interceptions on Sunday

New York picked off Chiefs' quarterback Alex Smith twice, marking the second time the Giants have notched multiple interceptions in a game. Interestingly enough, both of those occurrences have led to New York's only two wins of the season.

It was the first time Smith threw multiple picks since Week 17 of the 2015 season, and just the fifth time he's done so in 75 career games with Kansas City (including postseason). 3. Harrison Butker kicked his way into the record books

The rookie kicker connected on all three of his field goal attempts on Sunday and has now made 22 straight, tying the franchise mark held by Pete Stoyanovich (1997-98) and Ryan Succop (2011).

Butker also sits just three field goals shy of matching Succop (2009) and Cairo Santos (2014) for the most successful kicks by a rookie in team history. 4. Linebacker Reggie Ragland was given a chance to play more on Sunday, and he made the most of it

Ragland had the opportunity to play more on Sunday, logging 47 defensive snaps, and made the most of it by leading the team with nine tackles (8.0 solo).

The second-year linebacker had 11 tackles (7.0 solo) on the season prior to Sunday's game.

5. Travis Kelce had another big game through the air

Kelce hauled in eight catches for 109 yards, recording his fourth 100-yard game of the season. All other tight ends have seven such games this season combined.

The fifth-year tight end has tallied 100-plus yards through the air 10 times since the beginning of last season, the most of any player in the NFL. No other tight end has more than four in that span.

6. Some Chiefs reached some franchise milestones on Sunday

Punter Dustin Colquitt played in his 200th career game on Sunday, becoming just the fourth Chief to ever do so.

Colquitt joins Will Shields (224), Nick Lowery (212) and Jerrel Wilson (203) as the only Chiefs to reach the mark.

Linebacker Derrick Johnson also made some history with his 164th career start, tying former center Tim Grunhard for the fourth-most in team history. Johnson is seven starts shy of matching Jack Rudnay (171) for third place on the list.

Rookie tailback Kareem Hunt rushed for 73 yards on Sunday, moving past Robert Holmes (1968) and Mike Garrett (1966) for third place on the franchise rookie rushing list.

Hunt, who now has 873 yards on the season, is just three yards shy of passing Abner Haynes (1960) for second place, and 249 yards away from passing Joe Delaney (1981) for the franchise record. 7. Giant's quarterback Eli Manning made some history, too

Manning made his 209th consecutive start on Sunday, passing his brother, Peyton, for the second-longest streak in NFL history.

Manning completed 19 of 35 passes for 205 yards on the afternoon.
