The Chicago Bears saw an opponent with a championship in its recent history, not a team searching for its first victory.
That made them just a little apprehensive about this game.
Turns out, they had good reason.
The Bears (4-2) snapped a two-game slide following a 3-0 start. New York is 0-6 for the first time since the 1976 team dropped its first nine, a stunning turn for a franchise that won the Super Bowl two years ago.
"They're fighters," Chicago's Lance Briggs said. "We've got a fighting team. That's a Tom Coughlin-coached team. They're going to come out well-prepared, and they executed well."
The Giants came in clinging to the belief they could claw their way back into the NFC East race because every team in the division has a losing record. It's hard to see that happening the way they're playing.
