For three quarters of the game, the New York Giants were fighting tooth and nail with the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon, but the flood gates really opened up in the third quarter of the game.
Instead of the Giants going for it on 4th and 1, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin opted to send the punt unit out and have Steve Weatherford kick it away to the Chiefs and allow their defense to get another stop, but Kansas City punt returner Dexter McCluster had other plans, as he weaved through traffic, got some space on the field and took the punt 89 yards for a touchdown, which allowed the Chiefs to take a 17-7 lead in the game.
As you will see in the video, McCluster then mocks Giants receiver Victor Cruz's trademark salsa dance with a quick three second salsa of his own. The punt return for the touchdown was bad enough for the Giants, but the salsa mocking by McCluster was throwing salt on the open wound.
The Giants had no answer for McCluster's punt return, as the failed to score again in the remainder of the game, while the Chiefs went on to score two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter that put the game well out of reach, giving the Chiefs a 31-7 victory and sent the Giants to their first 0-4 start since 1987.
