Bears Favored Over Giants With Chase Daniel Expected to Start

Sterling Shepard

It was a somewhat risky move considering the game was tied 7-7 and the Bears are chasing a division title. Now at 8-4, the Bears look ahead to a Sunday night football showdown next week against the 11-1 Rams at Soldier Field. "And they got a lot of yards on that next down and distances". Against the Lions, Daniel passed for 230 yards and two touchdowns while completing 73 per cent of his passes.

On a day in which he threw a thrilling 49-yard touchdown, it was another Beckham play that viewers were analyzing as the Giants and Bears headed to overtime Sunday. It backfired, as Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley broke off a 22-year run that set up coach Pat Shurmur to be aggressive.

The Bears defense will make Eli Manning anxious for retirement by dominating so much that wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will start complaining by halftime.

Daniel and the offense finally got a drive together thanks to a 46-yard completion from Daniel to Tarik Cohen, who was ruled down by contact at the Giants' 28-yard line. But the Bears defense is still so dominant.

Rosas converted a 37-yard field goal to put NY up by ten again, though the Bears offense had a quick response. However, a field goal from Chicago cut the lead to seven and a rare successful onside kick suddenly put the Giants win in doubt.

Nevertheless, Bears backers were rewarded with a 23-16 victory.
