The New York Giants went back to work on Wednesday to prepare for Sunday’s showdown against the Chicago Bears with one word in their head, desperation.
Why are the Giants desperate you ask?
The Giants have not seen a victory since week four of the NFL season as they were 2-2 after their win over the Washington Redskins at Metlife Stadium back in October.
While Big Blue searches for a way to end a six game loosing streak, The Bears are trying to regain the form they had during last seasons exciting playoff run the team made last season.
The two teams met last season in East Rutherford when the Giants gained their biggest win of the season. That was last season though as bot teams have different faces and different cultures.
“Each year is Different” Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy explained to the New York media on wednesday. “You have to prep for that and you’ve got to understand that’s the way it goes. That’s the beauty of coaching, is how you respond to adversity. When you build a strong culture like we have in our building, when these types of things come your way, you rely on people’s character. We went on that stretch where we lost four games in a row, we got a win and broke it, then we got another loss last week. We’ve got good guys and guys that give good effort, so it definitely helps out. “
Some of the Bears struggles had come at the QB position with Mitchell Trubisky, who has been suffering through some injuries over the last few weeks. He most likely will be listed as questionable for this weekends battle.
As for the Giants one of the big positives has been the building of the on field relationship between Darius Slayton and Daniel Jones. The teo have hooked up for Four touchdowns in the last two games.
“He’s a really good player and you’re able to see all the different things he can do on the field Said Daniel Jones on Slayton at Wednesday News Conference. “I think he’ll continue to step up and make plays, and I’ve just got to make sure to get him the ball. I think he’s done a really good job so far.”
Slayton echoed the positive vibes that Jones shared to the media on Wednesday.
“Obviously, you want your quarterback to have a lot of faith in you as a receiver” Said Slayton. “I think that’s how you build a rapport with quarterbacks. Every time the ball leaves their hand, making sure it gets completed. I think that helps them have confidence in us. We know they are going to put the ball there, so at the end of the day, it’s on our end.”
We will continue the game previews on through game time on Sunday!!!
