Bears outlast Giants 19-14

This should sound familiar: Giants strike first; Bears rally just before the end of the half, build a lead in the 3’rd then hang on for dear life in the 4’th, giving up at TD while up two scores and then stopping the opposing team on the final drive.

This was an interesting game that featured two bizarre kick offs ..one by each team..that fluttered out of bounds. Also, the Giants missed two 42 yard field goals, one wide right; the other wide left, and that kept the door open. And the Bears defense got a strip sack to set up a score.

Early action

First blood goes to the Giants. And yes, the Bears dropped an early TD pass and threw an end zone interception.

Final rally comes up short.

Fans: somewhat rowdy; we gave fist bumps to the rowdy Giants fan sitting near us.
