Peter King’s Prediction:
Bears 27, Giants 16
The Giants will be a desperate, angry team Sunday night, but they’re not better than the Bears (though sometimes in the NFL that doesn’t matter as much as the desperation). If I’d seen the Giants play with any consistency in the first 12 quarters, I’d be inclined to have them win a game they have to have. But I haven’t seen the Giants’ big players — Eli Manning, Justin Tuck, Steve Smith — play big so far, and the first three weeks of the season have been highlight-filled by Chicago’s Jay Cutler and Brian Urlacher, among other Bears. If I were Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, I’d be sending the house at Cutler, trying to force him into errors. But I’m not sure that’ll win this game.
