The conversation from New York Giants camp this week was the importance of limiting mistakes. Sadly, the mistakes that were made were costly enough to drop the Giants to 2-9 after having opportunities to snap a six game loosing streak.
After two missed field goals and Kahlil Mack’s strip on Daniel Jones with 6:54 which led to a three play rushing touchdown by Mitchell Trubinsky which put the Bears up 19-7.
“Turnovers are huge, especially down the stretch,” Mack said. “No surprise that that one was a huge play down the stretch. That’s what we needed to win the game.”
The fumble by Daniel Jones was his 14th of the season. Jones who has not won since week four against the Redskins, had two more touchdown passes, one to Darius Slayton and the other to Golden Tate.
Jones finished 21/36 for 150 yards in a loosing effort which has officially eliminated the Giants from the playoffs and cliched a loosing record for the third straight year.
“It’s tough. No one likes to lose,” Jones said. “Everyone in this locker room, everybody that’s part of the organization, is trying to do what we can to correct it. We got to keep doing that, look at what we’re doing, get better. Right now, it’s not good enough.”
Trubisky threw for a season-high 278 yards, including a touchdown to Allen Robinson, and two interceptions after missing the final drive the previous week because of a right hip pointer.
Aldrick Rosas missed two field goal attempts in the second quarter. A 42-yard try was wide right and a 43-yarder was wide left.
“Just get after the next kick – it’s all I can do,” said Rosas, who has missed either a field goal attempt or PAT in five straight games. “As a unit, we just have to put the points up on the board when it’s presented.”
We will have more on the Giants Through out the week as they welcome Aaron Rodgers and the Packers next week at the Meadowlands.
