New York Giants vs Chicago Bears 11/24/2019
New York Giants
The Giants were defeated in their last game by their namesake, the New York Jets, with a 34-27 endgame score. Daniel Jones was the man of the hour, going at it with 26/40 and 308 passing yards. He threw 4 big TDs. Daniel Jones carried the ball only 3 times for a disappointing 20 yards. Darius Slayton caught the ball for an impressive 10 times and managed to cover 121 yards.
The New York Giants were having trouble with their rush attempts. They only rushed 17 out of 63 plays. The opponent was clearly prepared to shut down their rushing strategy from the start. The Giants compensated by switching to a throw-based game, which was ably implemented by their reception leader and QB. However, it was not enough to outscore the tenacious opponent.
The Giants dished out a decent defense of their own, holding the opponent to only 63% throw completion rate. However, they fell short in the rush defense. The opponent got through 29 times, with some of these attempts connecting for a TD. The Giants can either improve their throw offense tactic or find ways to circumvent teams that emphasize rush defense.

The Bears floundered against the Los Angeles Rams. The gap in scoring was pretty huge, with a 17-7 scoreboard. QB Mitchell Trubisky patiently put in 24/43 and 190 air yards. He threw a TD and a pick. Tarik Cohen was the ground offense leader, with 9 carries at 39 yards. Taylor Gabriel received the ball 7 times and contributed 57 yards.
The Bears only rushed 24 out of 74 times. Like their upcoming opponent, they were also outclassed by a rush-choker defense. Their attempt to switch to throws didn’t work well. The Bears tried to compensate by tightening up their defense, which was partially successful. They held down the opponent to only 61% throw completion rate. However, their defense had significant gaps on the ground. The opponent got through 34 rush attempts.
The Bears need to brush up their rushing tactics if they plan to be relevant during the closing of this season. Why the Finals are definitely out of their reach, they need to give it everything they’ve got to get decent end-season stats.
