Bears Keep Giants From Grabbing First Win
(Chicago, IL) -- The Giants miserable season continues as they fell to Bears, 27-21, at Soldier Field. Brandon Marshall led the Bears with nine catches for 87 yards and two touchdown receptions from Jay Cutler. Cutler completed 24-of-36 passes for 262 yards and had no turnovers in addition to the touchdown tosses. Chicago is 4-2. Bears head coach Marc Trestman says this was not an easy win for his team.
Eli Manning tossed three interceptions including two to Tim Jennings, the first was a pick-six in the first quarter and the second ended New York's final drive in the fourth that could have won the game. Manning has a league-high 15 interceptions on the season. Big Blue has fallen to 0-6 for the first time since 1976.
