Chicago Bears: Loss to Giants proves these three things

New York Giants

Report: Bears' Trubisky out again vs. Giants

It was the team's eighth of the season and it strengthened their bid for the playoffs.

It should come as no surprise that the Chicago Bears fell one spot in USA TODAY's Week 14 NFL Power Rankings after losing to the lowly New York Giants Sunday. Their defensive unit looked inspired for the first time all season.

Linebacker Alex Ogletree intercepted two passes, scoring on an 8-yard return on the second play from scrimmage. Behind the scenes, we're watching. With everybody else in the NFC North also losing Sunday, the Bears retain a 1½-game lead - plus a tiebreaker over the Vikings - 3½ over the Packers and four games over the Lions with only four games to play.

Since their Bye Week, the Giants have won three of their four games to improve to 4-8. It was set up by a 29-yard run by rookie Saquon Barkley, who finished with 125 yards on 24 carries.

He had to leave the game for a short time on Sunday due to a shoulder injury, but on Monday Barkley said his shoulder is fine.

Coach Matt Nagy thinks of it as an anomaly, but it's an issue the Bears must fix fast with the powerful Los Angeles Rams coming to Chicago on Sunday night.

Blowing a 10-point lead to a backup quarterback with less than two minutes in a game can be devastating and deflating to a team.

Down by ten with 1:49 left to play, the Bears marched 72 yards down the field and got to the 3-yard line before settling for a 21-yard Cody Parkey field goal.

Shurmur was asked if he thought his team would have a letdown entering overtime. "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". It's like the people that were "woe is me" at the fact that we were up by eight at halftime against the Eagles a week ago. It could have been the drive that saved the game for them. I said last week, his arrow's going up.

Washington on January 1, the school confirmed for The Dispatch on Tuesday, and the Ryan Day era will begin in earnest. Remember that initially Meyer said he was going to spend more time with his family and get healthy.
