(CHICAGO) — Jay Cutler made sure his team would not be losers of three-straight games.
Cutler threw two touchdown passes to Brandon Marshall, leading the Chicago Bears to a 27-21 victory over the winless New York Giants on Thursday night.
The Bears intercepted Eli Manning three times, bringing his NFL-leading total to 15 on the season. Tim Jennings had two of the three picks, returning one for a touchdown in the first quarter.
“We see things each and every week that tell us we cannot just be good, we can be very good,” Bears coach Marc Trestman said. “But we also know there’s a lot of work ahead.”
Brandon Jacobs was the lone bright spot for the Giants in his first start of the year. He rushed 22 times for 106 yards and two scores, but that alone will not be able to wash the bad taste out of the mouths of the team’s players and coaches.
“We’re all sick of it,” coach Tom Coughlin said. “We’re all sick of losing, but we put ourselves in this position. There is only one way to get out of it.”
The Giants dropped to 0-6 for the first time since 1976.
