New York Giants Come Up Short, Losing 17-13 To The Chicago Bears

The NY Giants made a stirring comeback on Sunday but came up one play short. Facing a 17-point deficit after a scoreless first half, the Giants rallied to within 17-13 against the Chicago Bears in Solider Field. On the game’s final possession, they drove from their own 40 to the Bears’ 10-yard line. But with four seconds remaining, Daniel Jones threw into the end zone for Golden Tate, who was penalized for offensive pass interference, ending the game.

The Giants’ offense was resilient. In the first half, the Giants ran only 22 plays and owned the ball for just under 10 minutes. But trailing by 14 and playing without two key players, the offense put together a 95-yard drive that ended with Dion Lewis’ one-yard touchdown run, his first score with the Giants, that cut the Giants’ deficit to 17-10 early in the fourth quarter.

QB Daniel Jones committed two early turnovers, throwing an interception and losing a fumble in the first half. That gave Jones four turnovers in two games.

The Giants fell to 0-2 for the fourth consecutive season and the seventh time in the last eight years – despite outscoring Chicago in the second half, 13-0.

The Giants return home to play the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers on Sunday. The Giants and 49ers have split their last four games dating back to 2014, with each team winning once at home and once on the road.
