There has been a lot of talk about the Giants being in disarray after an ugly loss last week, but they will bounce back with a better performance Sunday night. They still will make enough mistakes to give the Bears an opening, though.
The same issues that have caused problems for the Bears — poor pass protection and an ineffective running game — in the previous three games will continue to plague them vs. the Giants. QB Jay Cutler will take his share of hits, and RBs Matt Forté and Chester Taylor are not going to break out with big games on the ground.
But Chicago has proven it can win in spite of those factors each week thus far, and I expect a similar story line to play out at New Meadowlands Stadium. For the second straight week, a late Robbie Gould field goal wins it.
Prediction: Bears 20, Giants 17
