New York Giants Team News
New head coach Brian Daboll managed to change the New York Giants DNA in a very short time. From a team that was synonymous for losing in past ten years, they have become a fighting group that leaves everything they have on the field.
Although it’s only been three weeks, these Giants are definitely not the same as the ones from previous years. You can see a clear idea in both offense and defense, which was not the case under the leadership of Joe Judge. Saquon Barkley is playing more than solid, while Daniel Jones continues to fail to play well consistently. This is a decisive season for him because he is in the last year of his contract and if he does not satisfy Daboll, it could very easily happen that he doesn’t stay in New York.
Against the Tennessee Titans and Carolina Panthers, this team showed that it can overcome better opponents. The Chicago Bears will be the weakest team they will play against so far and the Giants can rightly expect to record their third win.
Chicago Bears Team News
The Chicago Bears have done a more than solid job in first three weeks. They defeated the San Francisco 49ers and the Houston Texans on their home field and thus further increased optimism of their fans. The result is probably the only positive thing at this moment.
If you look at the Bears roster, it is one of the worst in the entire league. Justin Fields doesn’t look like someone who is able to lead a team that wants to be in the playoffs. In offense, there is not a single real playmaker. Running back David Montgomery is one of the few who has quality, but he didn’t travel to New York due to injury. New head coach Matt Eberflus has done a good job so far, but tough challenges lie ahead.
The Bears will have a hard time beating anyone at road this season. For that to happen, a lot of things will have to come together during the game. In New York, it will be the defense that has to force Jones into mistakes because that is the only way they can steal a win from the Giants.
This is fifth consecutive season that the New York Giants and Chicago Bears will play against each other. The Bears lead 3-1 in last four meetings, and home team won all four games.
Sterling Shepard, Kadarius Toney, Wan’Dale Robinson and Leonard Williams are injured and won’t play for the New York Giants. The Chicago Bears traveled to this road trip without David Montgomery, Jaylon Johnson and Byron Pringle.
New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears Prediction
Although both teams are 2-1 after three weeks, the Giants and Bears are among the weakest teams in their conference. We give advantage to the home team because they have shown more consistency so far and they will certainly have a lot of support from the stands, which is not negligible.
