Giants lose to the Bears 19-14

"Things looked good at the start when Chicago 'gifted' the Giants the ball at the 40-yard line. Their opening kickoff went out of bounds, and Daniel Jones' first pass to Darius Slayton was good for 13 yards and a first down. Saquon Barkley lost 5 yards on his first carry, but got that yardage back on his second. The third down play didn't work, and Jones was lucky, as his pass to Golden Tate was almost intercepted.
Riley Dixon's punt had the Bears starting at their own 8-yard line, and the Giants defense got them off the field in three plays. I was surprised to see Tate out there for the kickoff return as he and Sterling Shepard haven't been available together for many games. Sure enough, he looked banged up on the play. The Giants got close to midfield, and when Saquon Barkley dropped a short third down pass, they punted.
Mitchell Trubisky got his team all the way down to the Giants 14-yard line when Alec Ogletree intercepted his pass in the endzone for a touchback. Barkley had one nice 13 yard run, but before you knew it, the first quarter was over and the Giants had to punt. The defense allowed Trubisky a 13-yard scramble for a first down, but they were lucky when his 60-yard pass completion was called back because of a penalty on Chicago.
Sterling Shepard started the next drive off with 22 yard run, and Jones finished it with a 3 yard touchdown pass to Kaden Smith to put the Giants up 7-0. The defense was bringing it now, and a Markus Golden sack on Trubisky had Chicago three-and-out. The Giants blew an opportunity to score again as the ball was poorly snapped, leading to Aldrick Rosas missing on a 42-yard field goal attempt that was wide right.
Chicago went three-and-out again, and soon Rosas had another chance, this time from the 43-yard line. This one went wide left. That's when th
e Giants let Chicago open the door right at the end of the first half. The Bears marched down the field and kicked a 26-yard field goal to make it a 7-3 game.
That drive must have really sparked Chicago, as the third quarter was a complete disaster for the Giants. They actually lost yardage on three drives, while the Bears scored all three times on theirs. A touchdown, a field goal and another touchdown gave Chicago a 19-7 lead.
Julian Love did his best to get the Giants back in the game. Love intercepted a pass at the Giants 20-yard line on the first play of the fourth quarter, and he ran it back 30 yards to midfield.
The Giants went for it on 4th-and-4 at the Chicago 44 yard line, but a 1 yard completion to Shepard didn't do it. The Giants' defense held, and then by the time Jones connected with Tate for a 23-yard touchdown to make it 19-14, there was only 4:10 left. Pat Shurmur used all three time outs on the Bears next drive, and they caught him by surprise on fourth down. Chicago looked to be going for it on a 4th-and-2 at their own 33-yard line before running off their offense and subbing in their punting team. The Giants quickly made some substitutions, but it didn't work out well. The Bears downed the ball at the Giants 6-yard line.
With no time outs left, the Giants converted on one fourth down play with a nice 17 yard catch by Slayton, but they were stopped on the next fourth down attempt. That was it, as the Bears ran the clock to finish off the game with a 19-14 win. I really hope the Giants can win some games before the season ends, but things start off with Green Bay coming to MetLife Stadium next week."

"I thought the Giants would play much better coming off their bye week..."
