Chicago extended the New York Giants' miserable start to the NFL season by winning 27-21 on Thursday, with quarterback Jay Cutler and receiver Brandon Marshall combining on two touchdowns and Tim Jennings making three interceptions.

New York is 0-6 for the first time since the 1976 team dropped its first nine, a stunning decline for a franchise that won the Super Bowl two years ago.

Cutler and Marshall were in tune early on, connecting for two touchdowns, and Jennings returned an interception 48 yards for a score as the Bears (4-2) built a 24-14 halftime lead.

Chicago was up by 13 in the closing seconds of the third quarter when Jennings got called for interference near the goal line and New York's Brandon Jacobs ran in for a touchdown from the 1-yard line.

That cut it to 27-21, but Jennings made up for that mistake with 1:54 left in the game by picking off an overthrown Eli Manning pass.
