The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE
The Bears won the game. Well, their second-half team won the game.
Because in the first half, the Giants flat-out dominated and again, looked like the defending champions on the field.
The offense was sharp in both the run and pass game. Aside from Eli Manning, David Wilson and Ramses Barden looking good, rookie Rueben Randle also looked good on offense for the Giants.
On defense, the Giants made Matt Forte look down-right awful, holding him to four yards in the first half. In the second half, Forte had 35 yards on two plays against the Giants second team defense.
Jay Cutler didn't look good against the Giants defense. He didn't get sacked, but he wasn't making spectacular plays either, as he was 9-for-21 with 96 yards, but did throw a touchdown to Brandon Marshall.
Da'Rel Scott made a great play on special teams blocking a punt by Ryan Quigley, which was recovered on the six-yard line by Greg Jones. That play set up a running touchdown by Andre Brown, which put the Giants up 17-7 at halftime.
For the third week in a row, the Giants first-team unit looked like the better team on the field and looked elite on the field.
Both the Jaguars and Jets might not be great teams, but the Bears are a solid team who could make a run at the playoffs in 2012, and the Giants looked like the better team on the field against them.
If the pre-season is any indication as to how the Giants are going to play on the field in 2012 during the regular season, then the G-Men are in for a good year that could end up taking them back to the playoffs.
Despite the loss, Giants fans have a lot to feel good about after Friday night's game against the Bears.
Stay tuned, Giants fans.
