Bears start slow. Trubisky throws a couple picks.

Jordan Howard rips them up in the second half. Bears grind out a nice win, but closer than it should be.

BEARS 30
Giants 20

My friend "guaranteed" me that Barkley will get 100+ rushing the ball and another 50+ receiving.
I guaranteed him the Bears win by 20.
I predict that manning throws 2 picks, Howard sits on the bench most of the game and we win 31-10

A whoopin. Giants get a mercy TD late, but this one was never in doubt. Gabriel has himself a day with a long (50+) TD

BEARS - 33
giants - 17

I need to wait to make my prediction until I know who's playing QB.

Bears win either way I think.

Oh man. This is the CLASSIC trap game. A reeling 3-8 Giants team, with the Rams looming one week later. I think a lesser team, with lesser leaders, and a lesser coach would allow the team to slip into complacency. But I don't see that happening.

The Giants OL is terrible. They have two real playmakers on offense, Barkley and OBJ. And that is IF Manning can get them the ball. Eli may be the most immobile QB out there. The defense is mediocre at best.

I see the Bears coming out a bit flat, but after a first possession TD by the Giants, the Bears are shocked into reality. The defense harrasses Manning all game, and he throws two picks. Jackson gets another pick but no TD. The Bears get 5 sacks, Mack and Hicks each have one. The Bears offense with Daniel under center, does just enough to win the game. Good day for Robinson against Janoris Jenkins, 5/80 1TD.

Bears - 24
Giants - 13

I'd bet that Daniel's is starting.

Probably. I think our defensive front is going to absolutely overwhelm their offensive line. I doubt it matters who starts at qb , and Daniel should come out a little less flat. I also think we have a lot more success running the ball than Thanksgiving. Detroit’s run defense is a decent bit better since they got Snacks.

Ditto.

6 of the Giants 8 losses have been by one possession. That skews their poor record in my mind.

Trap game? Maybe... but I don't think Nagy and our team's leadership will allow that to happen. Sounds like Trubisky is going to be a go, but it's not written in ink just yet.

(With Trubisky)
I think Biscuit might come out a touch rusty and the Giants will come out trying to prove themselves to the Class of the NFC North... but it's a punch in the face that we take, smirk, and then impose our will on them as a result.

Bears - 34
Giants - 17

(Without Biscuit)
I think Daniel gets a little more leeway in the offense, but Nagy is not interested in potentially turning the ball over and giving the almost dead Giants any reason to feel revived. Do we run more this week? We fucking should, they're 19th in the league by giving up 4.5 yards per carry. Still... I'm not feeling as confident with Daniel under center, but that doesn't mean I think we will lose.

Bears - 24
Giants - 14

I think Trubisky will play. He was day to day going into Thanksgiving. We'll probably get a clear idea by week's end once they put Bray back on the PS. If he's still on the roster, Mitch isn't ready.
