Hub Arkush: Giants didn't stop Bears' run game - Nagy did


His Bears squad now sits atop of the NFC North standings with a record of 8-3 with five games remaining in the regular season.

Mitch Trubisky threw on the field at MetLife Stadium a few hours before the Bears' ludicrous 30-27 overtime loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, another sign the second-year quarterback is progressing toward a return to the field next weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. Their defensive unit looked inspired for the first time all season. He had the chance to lead the Bears to their ninth win of the season, but wasn't able to due to his mistakes.

I have two side notes from Sunday's game.

Cohen said he remained calm when Daniel wasn't open. Behind the scenes, we're watching. It wasn't our best game, but I feel like we still played good. A couple of costly mistakes proved to be the game's deciding factor.

For the 11th time in 12 games this season, Barkley had at least 100 all-purpose yards. Saquon Barkley finished with 125 yards, the most the Bears have given up to a running back this season.

"No, it's not a concern", Nagy said Monday at Halas Hall.

To make things worse, he threw an interception while the Bears were deep in Giants territory.

After the game, Daniel stated in an interview with The Chicago Sun-Times that he let his team down. But the offense took the opening possession of overtime and drove the ball 49 yards to setup Aldrick Rosas's go-ahead 44-yard field goal. Unfortunately, the defense gave up big plays in the second half, and it was the offense that had to pick up the slack late in the game. "I was just trying to be a quarterback and go through the reads".

Shurmur was asked if he thought his team would have a letdown entering overtime.

If you're in the half-empty camp, we warned all week that the trip to NY could be a classic National Football League trap would be very frustrating if it were true, but I'm not sure that it is. "It speaks about the type of guys we have in the locker room and we just got to keep doing it and moving forward and believing in each other and doing it together".
