Week 8 of the NFL is officially in the books, and it might be time for us to finally admit that the Kansas City Chiefs are not a good football team.

The Chiefs did end the game with the win, beating the Giants 20-17, but they didn't look good while doing it. They also failed to cover the 10.5-point spread, and fall to 3-15-1 ATS in their last 19 games.

Let's take a look at the biggest winners and losers from Monday Night Football.

Winners from Giants vs. Chiefs

Underdog bettors

Underdogs dominated Week 8 of the NFL. They went 10-4-1 against the spread and 8-7 straight up, including a double-digit underdog that won outright. The Jets took down the Bengals as 11-point 'dogs on Sunday.

If you like to fade the chalk and take the points, you probably had a successful week of betting, including on Monday Night Football.

Derrick Gore

I didn't even know the Chiefs had a running back named Derrick Gore, but he burst onto the scene tonight and will be one of the most sought after free agents in fantasy football leagues across the country. He averaged 4.4 yards on 11 carries and scored a touchdown for the Chiefs.

And no, he's not related to Frank Gore.

Trevor Lawrence, Zach Wilson, Taylor Heinicke, and Joe Burrow

Patrick Mahomes threw his 10th interception of the season, and now he's the sole leader in interceptions in the NFL. There was a five-way tie heading into tonight's game, but the other four quarterbacks can breath a sigh of relief now that Mahomes has taken over as the sole top dog in this not-so-impressive statistic.

Losers from Giants vs Chiefs

Joe Judge

The Giants hung with the Chiefs all game, but Joe Judge made a critical time management mistake late in the game and got absolutely ripped apart by Peyton Manning on the Manning cast.

It's not good for a coach who's already on the hot seat to have one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history blatantly call him out for poor time management at the end of a pivotal football game. To be fair to judge, it seems like it's a rarity in the NFL for a head coach to know how to properly use time outs.

Chiefs Futures Bettors

I don't care that the Chiefs won the game. They're done. Finished. It's over. They now have losses to the Ravens, Chargers, Chiefs, and Bills and they barely beat a terrible Giants team. They need to reevaluate things and try again next year. This isn't a championship team, and now they have the Packers, Raiders, and Cowboys in their next three games. They'll be lucky to have a winning record when they head into their Week 12 BYE.

They were betting favorites to win the Super Bowl at the start of the season, but WynnBET dropped their odds to +1600 ahead of tonight's game.
