EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The Kansas City Chiefs probably don't know what to expect from the New York Giants. Neither do the Giants. On paper this game at MetLife Stadium is a mismatch. The Chiefs (6-3) are well-rested coming off a bye week. The Giants (1-8) seemingly have hit rock bottom after getting blown out by the Rams two weeks ago and then losing to the previously winless San Francisco 49ers last weekend.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chiefs defense has been lambasted for being poor against the run. But the reality is their pass defense hasn't been much better, a big reason they've lost three of four. As the Chiefs return from their bye with a visit to the Giants, they understand that getting back to winning ways on defense will play a big part in whether they make some playoff noise.
EDMONTON, Alberta (AP) - Brayden Schenn had two goals and an assist and the St. Louis Blues beat the Edmonton Oilers 4-1 to end a two-game skid.

NEW YORK (AP) - Javon Bess scored 22 points to lead St. Louis to a 77-71 win over Virginia Tech at Madison Square Garden. Jordan Goodwin added 19 as St. Louis improved to 3-0.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Clayton Custer finished 7-of-11 shooting and scored 17 of his 20 points in the second half, Aundre Jackson made 6 of 8 from the field to finish with 18 points and Loyola-Chicago beat Missouri-Kansas City 66-56. Marques Townes had 12 points and nine rebounds for Loyola.
(AP) - The Big 12 has a team in the top four of the College Football Playoff rankings, but not a team locked into its championship game. With only two games left, the most straightforward championship game scenario would be No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 11 TCU winning out and meeting again Dec. 2. There is also the chance for several tiebreaker scenarios coming into play to determine the title game matchup. While unlikely, there's still a chance six teams could finish with 6-3 conference records.
NEW YORK (AP) - Shamorie Ponds scored 22 points, Justin Simon had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and St. John's pulled away early from Nebraska for a 79-56 victory. Bashir Ahmed scored 15 points and Marcus LoVett added 13 with three assists for St. John's (3-0), which outrebounded Nebraska 50-39 and outscored them 44-16 in the paint.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - No. 4 Kansas will keep forward Billy Preston on the bench at least until its investigation into an on-campus incident with a vehicle is completed. Coach Bill Self says there is no timeline for his return. Preston's car hit a curb on campus on Saturday, but the incident left enough unanswered questions that Preston was held out of Tuesday's win over Kentucky. Asked who the car was registered to, Self said he could not comment. The Jayhawks play South Dakota State on Friday.
