They didn't sack Eli Manning once going against one of the worst offensive lines in the league.
Worse yet, they allowed 31-year-old Brandon Jacobs to run all over them. A team that averaged 3.3 yards per carry averaged 4.7 on Thursday night.
The Giants' offensive line was ranked 29th on Pro Football Focus (subscription required) and allowed Manning to be sacked 15 times in their first five games. Yet, the Bears' defensive line wasn't able to get there.
They were without Stephen Paea, but let's not act like he makes that big of a difference. They struggled with him too, as they did with Henry Melton and Nate Collins, who will both miss the rest of the season.
As he has been for most of the season, Peppers was M.I.A. McClellin's performance was about standard and what we've come to expect from a player who hasn't come close to living up to his potential.
Speaking of players who have no business being on the field, Cohen got almost no push all night. He was a street free agent for a reason.
After showing some pass-rush ability against New Orleans, Bass wasn't able to make as much of an impact against the Giants despite extended playing time.
Wootton and Minter were two bright spots for the Bears.
Wootton will never be confused for a natural 3-technique defensive tackle and will probably always struggle against the run, but he's putting forth a good effort.
Minter was called for an illegal use of hands penalty—which was declined—but Pro Football Focus (subscription required) credited him with one hurry in just six pass-rush snaps. Considering what else the Bears have on their roster, that should be enough to get him more playing time.
Despite that, the Bears were abused all around. Maybe it was because of injuries, but it isn't like that situation is going to get much better. They were just dominated by a bad offensive line.
