In another NFC match that is happening on Sunday will be played by two teams that are going in opposite directions. As the 2-7 Chicago Bears travel to MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey to play the red hot 6-3 New York Giants. Unfortunately, it has been a terrible year for the Bears as they are on the outside looking in for the playoffs and I would also like to mention they are the second-worst team in the NFC ( San Francisco 49ers are worse). On the other side, the Giants are playing very well as everything is clicking, and they are in line for at least a Wild Card spot.
Let us first look at the New York Giants. They are coming into this game with a record of 6-3 and are currently on a four-game winning streak. They currently are in possession of the 5th seed in the NFC. This four-game winning streak saw the Giants get wins over the Baltimore Ravens, Los Angeles Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Cincinnati Bengals.
The way they have played the last four weeks has had many people both NFL fans and fans of the New York Giants start to consider that this team is the third best NFC team, only the Seahawks and Cowboys are playing better than the Giants. You could easily say that the 2016 New York Giants have been two different teams. On one side, you have the Giants team that played in the start of the season and played like crap. Nothing was clicking, and Eli Manning was making odd choices. Several people thought that Eli was done and that he was declining.
However that is not the case now as Eli is playing very well right now, the core of OBJ, Victor Cruz, and Sterling Sheppard is becoming on the most elite core groups of receivers. I am figuring that it will be a long day for the Bears.
Now let us talk about the Chicago Bears. The Bears are entering this game with a record of 2-7 and currently hold the 2nd worst record in the NFC. They have one win in their last four weeks which occurred two weeks ago against their NFC North rival, Minnesota Vikings. It is also tough to win any NFL games when you are 31st in scoring, 16th in yards per game, and 19th in both passing yards and rushing yards.
It also doesn’t help that your quarterback Brian Hoyer is not performing at all. Overall, the 2016 season has been bad for the Bears. If you would like the information for this game, here it is.
