EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — With a 1-8 record and a pair of embarrassing losses the past two weeks, the key question today is not whether the 11-point underdog Giants can defeat the 6-3 Kansas City Chiefs. It is how hard they will actually try to do so?
Effort by some players was questioned in the team’s 51-17 loss to the Los Angeles Rams and last week’s 31-21 loss to the previously winless San Francisco 49ers. It has led to a week in which coach Ben McAdoo and players had a “brutally honest” film review.
Rookie offensive tackle Chad Wheeler will make his first career start Sunday at right tackle.
