Bears Favored Over Giants With Chase Daniel Expected to Start

"We had moments of it, we just didn't play four quarters, which is what we need to do when we have tough games like this".

"I'll tell you this, though-I've said it all along-we've got a group here that's really coming". "We've got a bunch of high-character guys that will fight till the end and that's a credit to them". "And if you talk to Chase, there at the end - there's a guy that we weren't really in rhythm, we weren't really getting first downs, starting the game with a pick-six, not how you want to start".

The Bears were able to beat the Detroit Lions last week with Daniel playing a clean game, not throwing any interceptions or even putting the ball in harm's way. Besides run blocking for Saquon Barkley and Wayne.

After that run, they then called seven more plays, five of which were definitely passes, and it's hard to say what the other two plays were as Daniel fumbled on both of them, although one looks like a pass and the other like it might have been a handoff to Taquan Mizzell.

Nagy said last week the Bears' opponent - the eight-loss, last-place Giants - was not a factor in the team's cautious approach to resting Trubisky's banged-up shoulder for the second consecutive week.

The Giants couldn't do anything to take the run away from the Bears in the second half because the Bears only called two running plays while dropping back to pass 30 times.

Nevertheless, Bears backers were rewarded with a 23-16 victory. Hicks scored in the second.

The Giants started the game without LB B.J. Goodson out with a neck problem. Ukeme Eligwe played and had his first three tackles of the season.

Rosas' 57-yard field goal was the longest in Giants history.

But all of that said, they will have nearly no chance against the Rams next week, or any team in the playoffs, if Nagy continues to manage games the way he did Sunday and continues to refuse to figure out how to leverage one of his best offensive players to his team's best advantage.

Sloppiness won't cut it against the Rams next Sunday, so Trevathan's prediction needs to be on the nose for the Bears to bounce back with a win.

Giants: at Washington next Sunday.
