EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Notes and anecdotes from the Giants’ 12-9 overtime victory against the Kansas City Chiefs in MetLife Stadium:

*The Giants broke a three-game losing streak and improved to 2-8. Both of their victories are against AFC West teams, Denver and Kansas City. They play one more AFC West foe this season, the Raiders in Oakland on Dec. 3.

*The Giants won for the first time at home this season after four losses. Their final three home games are against NFC East rivals Dallas, Philadelphia and Washington.

*The Giants played their first overtime game since Dec. 6, 2015, a 23-20 loss to the Jets, which broke their six-game winning streak in five-period games (plus two in the postseason). It was their first overtime victory since Dec. 22, 2013, when they won in Detroit, also by a 23-20 score. The victory was their first home overtime game since Nov. 22, 2009, when they defeated Atlanta, 34-31, in Giants Stadium. It was the Giants’ first overtime game since the extra period was reduced from 15 to 10 minutes.

*The Giants are 20-15-2 in regular-season overtime games since 1974, when the extra period was first played. They are 9-10 at home, and 7-7-2 when they lose the overtime coin toss (as they did Sunday).

*This was the Giants’ first victory in which they scored no more than 12 points since their 10-7 triumph against Dallas on Dec. 11, 2016.

*The Chiefs scored all of their points on three field goals. It was the Giants’ first victory in which they held their opponents without a touchdown since Dec. 18, 2016, a 17-6 win vs. Detroit.

*It was the second time this season the Giants did not allow an offensive touchdown in the first three quarters; the other game was their Oct. 15 victory in Denver, when they owned a 20-3 lead on their way to a 23-10 triumph.

*The Giants led at halftime, 6-3. It was the third time this season they did not allow a first-half touchdown (also at Denver and vs. Seattle on Oct. 22, a game they led 7-3, but lost, 24-7).

*The Giants improved to 11-3 vs. the Chiefs, including 7-0 in home games.

*The Giants are 12-8 since 1990 when their opponents are coming off a bye and the Giants are not. The Chiefs had a bye last week.

*Eli Manning started his 209th consecutive regular-season game, breaking a tie with his brother, Peyton, for the second-longest streak by a quarterback in NFL history, behind Brett Favre’s 297 straight starts. It is the sixth-longest starting streak among all NFL players since the 1970 merger:

LONGEST STREAKS OF CONSECUTIVE GAMES STARTED / SINCE 1970

NAME                                 STARTS

Brett Favre                               297

Bruce Matthews                     229

Will Shields                               223

Ronde Barber                           215

London Fletcher                       215

Eli Manning                              209

Derrick Brooks                         208

Peyton Manning                      208

*Manning completed 19 of 35 passes for 205 yards, no touchdown and no interceptions. It was the first time since the 19-3 loss to Dallas on opening day that he did not throw a touchdown pass.

*Manning engineered his 35th game-winning, regular-season drive (drives in the fourth quarter or overtime in which he led the Giants from a tie or deficit to win the game). That ties him with Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger for third among active quarterbacks, behind Tom Brady (41) and Drew Brees (who picked up his 39th such victory on Sunday).

*For the first time this season, someone other than a quarterback threw a pass for the Giants. But running back Shane Vereen’s option pass for Evan Engram on the Giants’ first series was intercepted by safety Daniel Sorenson. Vereen was the first Giants player other than Manning to throw an interception since backup quarterback Curtis Painter on Dec. 29, 2013 vs. Washington (after Manning left the game with an ankle injury).

*It was the second home game in a row in which the Giants committed a turnover on their first offensive possession. Two weeks ago against the Rams, Manning’s fumble was recovered by defensive tackle Aaron Donald, leading to a Los Angeles touchdown.

*The Chiefs also had a non-quarterback (tight end Travis Kelce) throw a pass. It was also intercepted, by Landon Collins.

*Cornerback Janoris Jenkins picked off his second pass of the season, intercepting an Alex Smith pass in the fourth quarter. That set up Aldrick Rosas’ 26-yard field goal, which gave the Giants a 9-6 lead with 1:38 remaining in the fourth quarter.

*Defensive tackle Damon Harrison intercepted a Smith pass in the first quarter after Jason Pierre-Paul hit Kelce just as the tight end got his hands on the ball. It was the second week in a row a Giants defensive lineman picked up his first career interception. Olivier Vernon accomplished the feat last week in San Francisco.

*The Giants picked up a first down on a fake punt attempt when up-back Nat Berhe gained two yards on fourth-and-one in the first quarter (that series ended with Sorenson’s interception). It was the Giants’ first called fake punt since Nov. 14, 2004, when punter Jeff Feagles threw an incomplete pass for fullback Jim Finn on fourth-and-five at Arizona. That was the last game the Giants played before Manning took over as the starting quarterback. Steve Weatherford decided on his own to try a fake punt at New Orleans on Nov. 28, 2011, but was stopped for no gain on fourth-and-11.

*The rushing attempt was the first of Berhe’s career.

*Chad Wheeler, who had taken just two offensive snaps all season, started and played the entire game at right tackle. Wheeler is the first Giants rookie free agent to start on the offensive line since Jeff Roehl on Nov. 30, 2003. Roehl played left tackle in a home loss to Buffalo.

*Defensive tackle Robert Thomas lined up at fullback on Orleans Darkwa’s one-yard score in the second quarter, the only touchdown of the game. Darkwa led the Giants with 74 rushing yards on 20 carries.

*Four Giants tied for the team lead with three catches apiece – Roger Lewis, Jr. (team-high 55 yards), Tavarres King (48), Travis Rudolph (34) and Vereen (15).

*Linebacker Devon Kennard recorded the game’s only sack, his second sack of the season, when he tackled Alex Smith for a one-yard loss in the second quarter. Kennard’s other sack was at Philadelphia on Sept. 24. Kennard returned to action after missing the game in San Francisco last week with a quad injury.

*Rosas’ 23-yard field goal with 1:54 remaining in overtime was the first game-winner of his career. Rosas made both of his field goal attempts after missing a try in each of the previous four games.

*Rosas missed an extra point for the first time this season when he was wide right on his attempt following the Giants’ touchdown. It was the Giants’ first missed extra point since Nov. 27, 2016, when Robbie Gould pushed one wide right in Cleveland.

*Safety Andrew Adams made his first start of the season as an extra defensive back. Adams started 13 games as a rookie free agent in 2016. He finished with five solo tackles.

*Kalif Raymond, signed off the practice squad last week, made his Giants debut with two punt returns for eight yards, a 12-yard reception, and a rushing attempt that lost one yard.

*Linebacker Akeem Ayers, signed last week, made his Giants debut with an assisted tackle on defense, and a solo stop on special teams.

*Brad Wing’s net average of 42.5 yards on six punts was his second-highest of the season. He had a 46.0-yard net average, also on six punts, at Denver.

*The Giants’ list of inactive players included linebacker B.J. Goodson (ankle), offensive lineman Justin Pugh (back), wide receiver Sterling Shepard (illness), linebacker Kelvin Sheppard (groin), cornerback Eli Apple, offensive lineman John Greco, and quarterback Davis Webb.

Goodson missed his third consecutive game and fifth of the season. Pugh sat out for the second time this year. Shepard was inactive for the third time (he missed the two games prior to the Giants’ bye with an ankle injury). Sheppard was hurt in his 2017 debut last week in San Francisco; he was signed on Nov. 7. Apple, who had played in all nine games with seven starts, missed his first game since Oct. 16, 2016 vs. Baltimore.

*Ross Cockrell started for Apple, his third start of the season and second in three games.

*The Giants’ game captains were Olivier Vernon, Evan Engram and Curtis Grant.
