The New York Giants’ 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears was the latest in a string of heartbreaks, as quarterback Eli Manning added three more interceptions to increase his season total to 15, tying his 2012 season total.
The most damaging of the picks was the final one which came in the fourth quarter with 2:20 left in the game and the Giants driving into Bears’ territory.
Manning’s pass intended for tight end Brandon Myers, who was wide open, was high, and Myers tried to leap into the air to grab it.
Despite getting both hands on the ball, he ended up deflecting it to cornerback Tim Jennings, who recorded his second interception of the game and who ended the Giants' hopes for a come-from-behind victory.
The loss drops the Giants to a dismal 0-6, their worst start to a regular season since 1976, when they started out 0-9.
On the bright side, the coaches have made a few personnel changes that have at least made the team a little more competitive over the last two weeks. Here are five that were pleasant surprises for New York in their loss against the Bears.
