Bears hold on to beat Giants

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw two interceptions but also had a touchdown through the air and another on the ground as his team defeated the hapless Giants 19-14.

Trubisky was far from great, but he at least did enough to stave off talk that he’s heading to the bench in favor of backup Chase Daniel. He’ll at the very least remain the starter for another game, with the Thanksgiving meeting with the Lions ahead.

The Giants didn’t get much from Saquon Barkley, who managed just 59 yards on 17 carries and one yard on two catches. Quarterback Daniel Jones totaled just 150 yards on 21 of 36 passes, although he did throw two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Bears improved to 5-6 and are clinging to some very slim playoff hopes. The Giants fell to 2-9 and are looking at a likely Top 5 pick in the draft.

  1. I think I figured out what Shurmur’s problem is. He’s stubborn. How is it that every opponent makes halftime adjustments, but the Giants never seem to do so? Shurmur’s my-way-or-the-highway game plan is going to cost him his job.

  2. Lordy was that some bad football, by both teams. A handful of nice plays, a few sequences so pathetic I was literally laughing out loud, and a whole lot of yawning in between. Happy to see my Bears won’t drop off that “In the Hunt” graphic just yet, but I’d hardly say they solved any of their problems today.

  3. Shurmur may not get you to a Super Bowl. But do y’all really want Jason Garrett? Because apparently he wants y’all.

  4. Yet another game the Bears got hosed on calls. Managed to win today somehow though b/c they played a bad team. B.s. hands to the face call to sip away a 60+ yard play in the first half and then a bad 2 point conversion “pick”/offensive PI call. Please just fire all refs or someone look into all the bs

    We were just hoping you would drop off the Bears bandwagon. Good win by the Bears.

  6. With the Washington win the Giants officially hold the #2 pick. Fish 3 and skins 4. The Giants will beat either the skins or fish in these last 5 games and blow their shot at Chase Young.

  7. Oh well. We lose by 5 after the kicker blows 6, and a decent game by Jones is ruined by another fumble that handed the Bears 7. A 176 yard a game passer throws for 300 or close to it. But a number of bright spots too from a young Giants team in what was basically another blind leading the blind game.

  8. In addition to the Giants HORRIBLE offensive line Shurnmur needs to get Jones to line up under center. This I believe is what is hindering Barkley’s production.

  9. Just one hilarious worthless, meaningless game on both sides of the ball. The only good thing that should come from it is just how bad improvements are needed everywhere!
