Week 2: Giants vs. Bears
The stage is set. 66 and sunny. 10 mph winds to the southeast. A battle between the two undisputed greats of Northern cities, New York and Chicago, in that order. Its Giants at Bears.
Ditka and Parcells, Coughlin and Lovie Smith. These organizations have history and pride on the line. Da Bears lead the all-time series 34-24; but a New York slice blowing deep dish out DA water makes this essentially 0-0 going into Sundays match up.
The Giants are coming off a 26-16 loss to the Steelers and need a win on Sunday with a brutal schedule stretch forthcoming. The 9ers at home, at Rams, and at Cowboys.
The Bears on the other hand are coming off a stunning 27-23 victory over the Lions, one in which they trailed 17 in the 4th. Here’s a preview of Sunday:
From a Giants fan:
We just need this more. Daniel Jones looked good against a tough Steeler’s D, but if he wants to lead us to victory on Sunday, I need under 2 turnovers. And that’s exactly what’s going to happen as Danny Dimes proves he is easily the best QB on the field. Everyone who has been slandering Saquan’s name is really going to regret it come Sunday Afternoon. Barkley goes for 135 and a couple TDs on the ground against a run D that allowed 115 yards on the ground to 45-year-old Adrian Peterson and the rest of a shotty Detroit backfield. Giants win 27-20 and get back on track.
From a Bears fan:
Ever since that boat picture the Giants really fell off. I hear New York is disgusting nowadays. Mitch has never looked more composed in the pocket and if you watched him throw last Sunday there’s no doubt that he’s going to off for at least 300 and 2 TDs. I can see the Bears covering the 5.5 by 30 winning 38-3 in a blowout in the Windy City. You really thought the Giants were about to walk into Keef’s city and take a dub. “I been ballin so damn hard they think that I’m Kobe” – Chief Keef
There you have it. An all-time showdown.
