The Chicago Bears went to New York hoping to add to their division lead. They came up short in a heartbreaker that went to OT.
The Chicago Bears have been in control of their division for a few weeks now as their rival teams continue to lose, minus the Minnesota Vikings. The Bears were looking to secure a winning record and add to their NFC North lead on Sunday when they faced the New York Giants on the road.
What happened in the game was anything but a performance where the Bears looked to be in control. The game started with disaster on offense for the Bears and took several twists and turns afterward.
The Bears were again without starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who missed his second straight game with a shoulder injury. While the team was able to pull off a win on Thanksgiving without him, this game against the Giants proved much tougher.
Despite the Giants coming into the game with a 3-8 record, they played with a chip on their shoulder and came out of the gate seemingly playing much harder than the Bears.
It looked as if the Bears expected the Giants to be demoralized and not put up a good effort. That’s not at all what happened, and it ended up costing the Bears a very winnable game.
There were some odd occurrences in this game and some bad calls by the refs. But at the end of the day, this was a game the Bears should’ve won. They ended up with a 30-27 OT loss, and to me, it proves these three things.
