Giants’ defense continues allowing points at blistering pace

Through five weeks of the season, the Giants had allowed an NFL-high 182 points. In the first half of Week Six, the Giants allowed even more scoring than usual.

In addition to a Tim Jennings pick-six courtesy of Eli Manning, the Bears got two touchdowns from Brandon Marshall and a field goal from Robbie Gould in the first half, taking a 24-14 lead into the locker room.

If the Bears score six points or more in the second half, the Giants will become the first team in NFL history to give up 30 points or more in each of their first six games of the season.

Once Manning stopped throwing interceptions, he actually played pretty well, and the Giants have been playing competitive football. But they’re going to have to be better on both sides of the ball in the second half to come from behind in Chicago.
