New York wins against Chicago. On Sunday, October 2, the New York Giants defeated the Chicago Bears 20-12, improving their record to 3-1.
The Giants’ offence was spearheaded by running back Saquon Barkley, who amassed 146 yards on 31 carries. However, Daniel Jones’ two rushing scores, both on play-action fakes to Barkley, gave New York the advantage.
In Week, when the Giants take on the Green Bay Packers, it will be their third time playing in London.
In Twickenham Stadium nine years later, the Giants defeated the Los Angeles Rams 17-10 to defeat them and advance to the postseason.
This Week, the bears engaged in a little more aerial activity. On his first throw attempts, Justin Fields surpassed his previous season’s passing yards and completed 10 21 passes for 163 yards.
Injury of Success
Late in the third quarter, Daniel Jones suffered an ankle injury. Tyrod Taylor briefly took his place before leaving to have a concussion evaluation. Although it’s unclear how severe Jones and Taylor’s injuries are, running out of quarterbacks is not a good thing. The Giants are still up going into the fourth.
The Giants had a difficult first half and lost three guys on defence. The second quarter saw Julian Love undergo testing for a concussion; he was not confirmed to play again, depriving the defence of a guy who plays every snap.
Due to a neck problem, the Giants’ rookie correct tackle Evan Neal was lost for the offence. Devery Hamilton took over in his place. With a knee injury, wide receiver Kenny Golladay left the game after being targeted just once and failing to catch a ball.
Chicago still had a chance, but with 2:13 remaining, Velus Jones Jr. fumbled a punt at his own 35, and Gary Brightwell recovered. With 17 seconds left, the Bears received possession of the ball at their own 27; however, the game was decided on a play with roughly ten laterals.
Bear’s side of the game
According to ESPN‘s Adam Schefter, rookie WR Velus Jones Jr. is anticipated to make his NFL debut. Jaylon Johnson and David Montgomery are both out of this game. For personal reasons, Cairo Santos is also absent. In his place, veteran kicker Michael Badgley was signed, but this is a significant disadvantage for Chicago on a day that is predicted to be windy and rainy. After a skillfully performed screen picked up 24 on third and 20, Justin Fields was sacked and lost the ball close to the end zone. When the Giants returned, Chicago’s chance to go in front was ruined.
Just a shambles, the Bears’ offence. The Bears gained momentum with a stunning interception from Eddie Jackson (CF style! ), but a three-and-out soon after. Simply put, they have been unable to respond to Wink Martindale’s blitzes.
This season has been unusual. Unfortunately, this club will undoubtedly struggle in Minnesota next Week. It would be a significant hole for them to go to 0-2 in the division with a divisional loss, but that is where this squad is right now.
On the game’s final play, the Bears attempted a trick play rather than a Hail Mary from their 33. When Justin Fields completed a two-yard pass to running back Trestan Ebner, a sequence of laterals and fumbles ensued, culminating in a ball recovery by Giants safety Dane Belton for a five-yard loss.
“You’ve just got to try to play the play longer than them on that one, “I know everybody was tired. I know I was tired, but on those plays, you’ve just got to hope for the best and keep the ball alive.” Fields said
