Bears have worst start since 2002 after 22-16 loss to Giants
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Eli Manning threw a go-ahead 15-yard touchdown pass to rookie Sterling Shepard in the third quarter as the New York Giants rallied for their fifth straight win with a 22-16 decision over the Chicago Bears on a windy Sunday.
Manning (21 of 36 for 227) also threw another third-quarter touchdown to Will Tye, Rashad Jennings scored on a 2-yard run and Robbie Gould kicked a 46-yard field goal on a day he missed two extra points.
The Giants (7-3) also got a second-half shutout from their defense and a game-clinching interception from Landon Collins as injuries on the offensive line finally caught up with the Bears (2-8) and left Jay Cutler under constant pressure.
Tight end Zach Miller and offensive lineman Josh Sitton were also taken out of the games with injuries, and Cre’Von LeBlanc was taken out for a concussion.
The winning streak is New York’s longest in the regular season since 2010, while the Bears’ starts matches their worst since 2002.
