Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. defended his effort after he didn't dive for an onside kick that the Bears recovered in Sunday's 30-27 overtime win over Chicago.

After the Bears kicked a field goal with 1:13 remaining, Chicago lined up for an onside kick. Kicker Cody Parkey one-hopped it and it went in Beckham's direction. While Giants safety Curtis Riley missed a block, Beckham appeared to hesitate, allowing Chicago's Daniel Brown to recover.

"It was a great kick," Beckham said, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan. "Sometimes, somebody makes a better play than you do. I can dive in there and still not get the ball. It was a very tough call."

It got lost in the shuffle last week, when everyone freaked out over the way Saquon Barkley wa used in the second half in Philadelphia, but the Giants' defense was absolutely terrible. The Eagles rolled over them in the second half. The Giants defense couldn't get off the field.

They needed a big bounce-back game this week.

They seemed to have it. Then they blew it. And then they bailed themselves out in the end.

THE GAME 

The Giants (3-8) vs. the Chicago Bears (8-3) at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday, Dec. 2, at 1 p.m.

THE WEATHER

First the good news: It'll be warm. Like in the low 60s. Now the bad news: It'll be wet. There's a chance for a lot of rain.

WHAT IT MEANS

The Giants are virtually out of playoff contention, but not mathematically out of playoff contention. They're only 3 1/2 games out of first place in the NFC East with five games to go. So if they win and they get some help from … Yeah, I'm not buying it either. This game basically means nothing at all. Pat Shurmur would like to build some momentum. Eli Manning is trying to prove he should be the starter in 2019. A lot of guys are fighting for future jobs. But mostly the only thing to watch now is where the Giants get to pick in the 2019 NFL draft.

The Giants' toughest remaining opponent based on winning percentage is the Chicago Bears, and they likely won't have quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.

With Trubisky dealing with a shoulder injury, the Giants will likely go up against Chase Daniel for Sunday's game, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Trubisky, the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft, was limited at Wednesday's practice due to a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. He didn't play on Thanksgiving against the Detroit Lions, and Daniel completed 27 of 37 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-16 win in his absence.

THE GAME 

The Jets (3-4) at the Chicago Bears (3-3) at Soldier Field in Chicago on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

The bright side is that this could be a lot worse. It's Chicago in late October, and a storm system is moving through, so if it's not dropping snow then consider it a win. However, even with temperatures in the low 50s, there are thunderstorms expected throughout the morning and they certainly could linger into the afternoon. And the winds will be whipping -- 15-20 mph. Sounds like last week at the Meadowlands (only slightly warmer), and the Jets remember how that went.

Safety Jamal Adams has emerged as a leader in the Jets' secondary since New York drafted him sixth overall in 2017. But he didn't think he would always be a Jet.

Considered one of the elite prospects in the 2017 draft class, Adams told the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta he thought the Chicago Bears would draft him, even after they traded up from No. 3 to No. 2.

"I'm not even going to sugar coat it. I thought I was going to be a Chicago Bear," Adams told Mehta ahead of Sunday's Jets-Bears matchup. "Everybody did. But it didn't work out that way. And I landed in the best possible position."

Back to respectability (at least for Week 6) after a few tough weeks.

I won with the Giants and Steelers. The Bengals won but did not cover against the Bills, and I admit I was a bit overzealous in thinking the Broncos would cover the 27-point spread.

It looked like the tape was on repeat for the New York Giants defense last night against the Chicago Bears. Going into halftime, the team had allowed 24 points, two touchdowns to Bears' WR Brandon Marshall and a last second field goal that pushed Chicago's lead to 24-14.

But after it was all said and done,?Big Blue?only allowed another three points in the second half and kept QB Jay Cutler and the potent Bears offense, relatively in check. While the defense was able to stop the bleeding, it didn't transfer over to the offense and the Giants would ultimately lose their sixth straight game this season and remain winless, with the final score tallying 27-21.

Finally, the Giants played a relevant fourth quarter. But even though it was a close game right down the wire, the outcome remained the same for the Giants as they fall to an unthinkable 0-6 with a 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Sure, Eli Manning?s two interceptions early were brutal, ugly and right on par with how he has been playing all season. He was picked off on two of his first five passes.

But Manning rebounded nicely to put the Giants in a position to orchestrate a game-winning drive.

The Giants are 8-point underdogs to the Bears in Chicago tonight. They are 0-5 and going in the wrong direction. Turnovers, poor play, ineffective coaching, age and subpar talent have relegated the Giants to spend this season in the cellar of the NFC East.

They have lost several key players to injury and many others are playing hurt. It's only Week Six.

The temptation of bringing Brian Urlacher to TPC has had to cross the Giants' minds. Even if just for a minute. it is an intriguing notion. But the bottom line is the Giants simply don't have the cap space. Especially for a soon-to-be 35 year-old LB who has had recent knee and hamstring issues.

From ESPN Chicago:

Urlacher told the Chicago Tribune that he originally sought a two-year deal worth $11.5 million with hopes that it would lead to negotiations.?But the Bears' only offer to the star linebacker was a one-year contract worth $2 million, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

A big win from the Giants moves them up a spot. The Falcons just keep pulling out wins to remain in the top spot.

1.?Atlanta Falcons 10-1 (Last week, 1): The Falcons relied on a late touchdown to earn a win over the Buccaneers. It?s been getting a little more difficult, but Atlanta is still winning close games.

2.?San Francisco 49ers 8-2-1 (Last week, 2): Colin Kaepernick was at it again as the 49ers earned a sound win over the Saints. Two defensive touchdowns helped as well.

2.?? Chicago Bears 7-2 (Last week, 2): Holding the Houston Texans to just 13 points was an accomplishment for the Bears? defense, but the injury to Jay Cutler stunted any sort of offensive attack. But defense wins games in this league, keeping the Bears at No. 2.

There was some good news to take away from last night's loss to Chicago. The Giants' first teams looked solid in jumping out to a 17-7 halftime lead. QB Eli Manning was sharp, completing 17 of 21 passes for 148 yards and a TD. Rookie RB David Wilson made the most of his starting opportunity by rushing for 49 yards and receiving for 26 more.

The bad news was that the Giants did not score again and played shoddy defense in the second half. Injuries continued to mount. CB Prince Amukamara left the game on a cart with what is being diagnosed as a high ankle sprain. No news on how long he will be out, but it's expected to be 2-3 weeks at the minimum.

Another defensive starter, LB Mathias Kiwanuka, suffered a groin strain.

The Giants' first stringers did their job. They outplayed the Bears' starters head-to-head in the first half and went into the tunnel ahead by ten, 17-7. Mission accomplished. The Bears decided to keep their starters in a bit longer before giving way to the reserves, dominating the second half en route to a 20-17 win.

CB Prince Amukamara left the field via cart in the first half with a lower leg injury. X-rays revealed no breaks, but medical personnel is calling it a "high ankle sprain", which could keep Prince out anywhere between 3-6 weeks.

Rookie RB David Wilson had a productive first half in place of Ahmad Bradshaw, rushing for 49 yards and receiving for 26 more. WR Ramses Barden came to life after four years of dormancy, catching three passes for 46 yards and a TD.

Former Giants WR and special teams ace Devin Thomas, who signed with the Chicago Bears this past spring, has left the team according to sources.

Thomas, 25, made the announcement today himself on Twitter and it was initially thought to be a prank.....


A big win with a big downside. The Giants lost their leading tackler from last season in Terrell Thomas and a potential key contributor in CB Brian Witherspoon. He will undergo an MRI on his knee today.

Things, believe it or not, could have been worse. LT Will Beatty was limping around at halftime. The foot that kept him out for nearly two months last year appeared to be the problem. The Giants dodged a bullet. Beatty just rolled his ankle a bit....X-Rays were negative...

"The foot feels pretty good," Beatty said. "I just playing on this turf, had the new shoes on and just not really playing out there in the off-season and all of that. Just spatting my foot up. It?s good. "

Terrell Thomas has been declared out for the season after tearing his ACL in last night's game vs Chicago. One of his possible replacements, Brian Witherspoon, may now be lost as well.

Witherspoon injured his knee while retuning a punt and as of press time, the extent of the injury is unknown. As of last night, it did not look promising, though....

In what was a thoroughly demonstrative performance by the Giants in a 41-13 win over the Chicago Bears, the improved play on the field was largely overshadowed by the news of cornerback Terrell Thomas being lost for the season with a torn ACL.

In what should be considered a great bounce back effort after last week?s lifeless performance in Carolina, the only thing people will talk about is the injury to Thomas.

The Giants defeated the Chicago Bears 41-13 at NMS on Monday night. Tom Coughlin met the media afterward.

"Well we played better and we improved tonight. We had a lot of big plays in the game. I was glad to see so many guys make strong contributions. The blocked punt, the fourth down play by Cruz, with Hixon,?David Carr?played well tonight. Defensively, we did a good job pretty much all the way through against there ones. A lot of guys made strong contributions on special teams. I think, especially in the first half, we had a lot of big hits on kick-off coverage--Devin Thomas, naturally, as we saw, had some outstanding kick-returns. It was very well blocked. We?re very pleased with that part of it; very disappointed in the injuries that occurred. That?s the part of the game that just makes you shake your head. You extend the play time a little bit to take full advantage of the fact that we literally had no off-season and a very small preseason, very short preseason. So, we extended a little bit of play time tonight and we did have some guys that got nicked up. I don?t have a whole lot of information on that, but I do know that Terrell was an ACL."

They did just about everything right except stay healthy. CB Terrell Thomas tore his ACL on a collision with JPP and was lost for the season. Another CB, Brian Witherspoon, left the game with a knee injury as well. His status is still to be determined.

The Chicago Bears came here to the Meadowlands last fall and could not protect their quarterback. They surrendered ten sacks to the Giants and had their top two QBs sent to the sidelines in a daze.

Tonight, they will try again to stop the sea of Blue, but this time around their offensive line is more unseasoned. ?Plus they'll have to contend with Giants' X-Man, Jason Pierre-Paul.

Good morning folks. Yesterday was the last open practice of training camp. The Giants are off today to rest up for tomorrow night's game vs Chicago. Coach Tom Coughlin anticipates the starters will go "25-30 snaps" before giving way to the send string. The rest of the team will play sparingly. This is the game where the Giants hop to establish their immediate depth.

Things got a little heated when two backups got into a fistfight after a play. CB Michael Coe and WR Duke Calhoun went at it, helmets flying, but it ended quickly.

Tom Coughlin shrugged it off. Apparently he didn't mind the feistiness:
