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 staff at BBB provides some insight on what to expect from the Giants tonight:

Each week, I will be taking a look at the Giants? media notes to pull out some interesting facts about the upcoming opponent.

The Giants (0-5) are still searching for their first win of the season as they travel to the Windy City Thursday night to take on the Chicago Bears (3-2).

The Giants are 19-27-2 all-time against the Bears but won the last matchup between the two teams, 17-3, on Oct. 3, 2010.

The Giants are heavy underdogs in Chicago this week. A loss would drop them to 0-6 and etch this season into franchise infamy. ?Several key players - including RB David Wilson - will not be on the field.

Can the Giants stop the free fall? What happens if they do? More importantly, what happens if they don't? Send us your take.....

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.

Not much happening in this second half.....the Bears kicked 2 FGs and narrowed the score from 17-7 to 17-13. Giants defense still playing well. Offense....well not so much.

The Bears are improved, we get it. The officials are not. We get that, too. Chicago leads here, 7-3 after one period.

The big news is that Prince Amukamara in downstairs getting his leg X-rayed after a docile hit on Brandon Marshall. It looks as if his leg may have given way after his foot got caught in the turf.

The Giants' first team offense has still not gotten into the end zone. They only mustered three points (a Lawrence Tynes 32-yard FG) after rookie David Wilson gained 66 total yards for them in the first qtr.....

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....

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."

The Giants walloped a disorganized Bears team on a cool night at the New Meadowlands (soon to be MetLife) Stadium.

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.

We outlined the first three quarters for you in below posts.

Let me preface this by saying I do not have a valid injury report at press time. On account are the PUPPies (Ramses Barden, Adam Koets) Prince, Osi and Lawrence Tynes. everyone else of worth should be suited up.

Here are some things I will be focusing on in tonight's affair with the Bears:

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.

Matt Bowen of the Chicago Tribune (and the National Football Post) ?wrote this about JPP:

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:

Its' an unusual Thursday here as there is no practice. Because of the Monday night game, the off day was moved to today from Tuesday.

Yesterday, the highlights (if you can call them that): TE Travis Beckum was told to get off the field by Kevin Gilbride and DE Justin Tuck left practice with a lower leg injury, that we later learned was an Achilles strain. It should not keep him out for any extended period of time. The secondary continued to drop INTs - Terrell Thomas was the biggest culprit - and Michael Boley and JPP did not practice again due to back issues.

Rookie LB Spencer Paysinger spent time on the first team (see out featured post) and K Rhys Lloyd, who will kick in place or Lawrence Tynes this week, was perfect in his five FG attempts. WR Darius Reynaud, who is having a nice camp, missed another day with a hammy strain. LB Clint Sintim returned (that should have been the headline, I know) and WR Domenik Hixon also practiced. The Giants are sitting him every other day to alleviate pressure on his newly rehabbed knee. Just a precaution. They need him fresh....

For the past 17 years the Giants organization has one major constant...a defensive end that was going to play the run or the pass with a ferocity that NFL teams would have to game plan around that player.

Until former Dallas Cowboys Offensive tackle Flozell Adams stuck his leg out and tripped NY Giants Defensive End, Justin Tuck in September of 2009.? That "bush league" play by Adams cost Justin Tuck more than a shoulder injury...it cost Tuck a season of mediocre play.

A year later a healthy Justin Tuck is back and showcasing to the NFL why he is a dominant player.

Tom Coughlin met the media after the game Sunday night, a bit more pleased about the state of his football team, but is still unnerved by the inexplicable amount of turnovers.

"A great win for our team tonight. A win that we really needed ? to be 2-2 and tied for the division lead is outstanding. We're excited about that. Our defense played superbly. I feel badly that we turned the ball over and they ended up with a field goal there in the third quarter. I thought we?the ten sacks?the disappointing thing I think was the ball being turned over to us twice in the first half and not coming away with any points at all. That was frustrating. We did stick with it. We ran the ball ? they're a very good defensive football team ? Peppers is an exceptional player, their linebackers are exceptional ? they did an outstanding job of that. But we're excited to win. I thought that Matt Dodge did better in the second half. He came back out and kept the ball pretty much away from 23 (Devin Hester), which helped us win. An outstanding win for our team. Good solid week of practice again ? we've had a couple in a row. It paid off for us tonight, although we still had turnovers ? we've got to somehow get that under control."

from Sr. Columnist Jon Wagner:

An ugly, turnover-filled football game was a thing of beauty for the previously struggling New York Giants.

On a night when the Giants (2-2) paid homage to the team?s new Ring of Honor at halftime, Big Blue appropriately got back to the old-time basics of Giant football with a dominant defensive performance and a solid running gameduring a 17-3 victory over the Chicago Bears (3-1) at the New Meadowlands Stadium before a national television audience on NBC? Sunday Night Football.

Overcoming three turnovers and an unproductive offense in the first half, the Giants used ten sacks ? including an NFL record nine in the first half -- and a rushing game led by running back Ahmad Bradshaw (game-high 129 yards on 23 carries, 1 TD), to ultimately take control over what had been the last remaining unbeaten team in the NFC.

Bears QB Jay Cutler did not come out for the second half of tonite's game with the Giants. ?It has been reported that he has a concussion and will not return. ?Backup Todd Collins is in at QB for Chicago.

The Giants sacked Jay Cutler nine times for losses of 55 yards in the first half, three by Osi Umenyiora and two by Justin Tuck. The Giants also put eight other hits on Cutler in the half.

Eli Manning was also not particularly sharp, throwing behind receivers all night. He went 7-14 for only 63 yards.

The only scoring in the first half was Lawrence Tynes' 22-yard FG in the first quarter. He missed from 38 yards in his next attempt, hooking it right.

The Giants will host the undefeated Bears tonight at the New Meadowlands Stadium in a nationally-televised event.

Although the Giants are team that appears to screeching off the rails and the Bears are finding ways to win each week, oddsmakers have made the Giants a three-point favorite.

That may seem ridiculous to some, but if you believe in the law of averages, it makes perfect sense.

The 3 -o Bear's are coming to town Sunday night and the NY Giants need a win to gain some momentum in the division and for them confidence of the team.? However the Giants have hit the training room with a rash of serious injuries that is sure to impact this team moving forward.

After practice earlier this week, Kiwi underwent a CAT scan were he was diagnosed with a bulging cervical disc.?? He is out for a undetermined period of time time.? The versatile? Kiwanuka leads the team with 4 sacks and has had major success from the defensive line and linebacker position in this new Fewell system.

Bum Ankle: The anchor of the offensive line, Shaun O'Hara is still shut down as the Giants try desperately to get him healthy.? Adam Koates takes his place; however his on presence is greatly missed on the field and the in locker room.

You don't have to remind Giants' special teams coach Tom Quinn that #23 on the Chicago Bears just might be the best kick returner anyone has ever seen. ?He knows.

"He's electric. He's dangerous when he touches the ball, so you have to do your best to try and claw at it. You have to try and keep the ball out of his hands, and there is not a lot you can do. It was tough to do last time we played him, he touched it three times. We are prepared to get down there, cover, and tackle."

That is, if they decide to kick it to him.....

Chicago Bears blogger Jeff Hughes (Da Bears Blog) previews the upcoming game against the Giants. Bears fans win a few games and they think they are the Monsters of the Midway again. As you would expect, he is predicting a huge Chicago win....

I would love to slam this guy, but the Giants have given me little ammunition to fight back with.

I want to read his column on Monday after the Giants beat these Bears, who may be 3-0 right now, but they are not as good as Mr. Hughes believes they are. Keep in mind, they still have Jay Cutler under center. He can be rattled into turnovers.
