Giants fall to 0-4 after blowout loss to Chiefs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Alex Smith threw three touchdown passes, and Dexter McCluster returned a punt 89 yards for another score as the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs plunged the New York Giants to 0-4 with a 31-7 win Sunday.

Smith hit touchdown passes of 4, 2 and 35 yards for the Chiefs (4-0), who under new coach Andy Reid already have doubled their win total of 2012. They are the second team to go from a two-win season to 4-0 the next year.

The Giants, who trailed just 17-7 after three quarters, are 0-4 for the first time since 1987.

Eli Manning connected with Victor Cruz on a 69-yard scoring play for New York's only score. Kansas City's defense sacked Manning three times. Smith threw two interceptions, the first giveaways by the Chiefs, who also lost a fumble.
