The Chicago Bears and New York Giants faced off in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season — a matchup between teams that will be vying for an NFC Wild Card spot. It was the Bears that came out on top with 17-13 being the final score.
The Bears are moving to 2-0. Meanwhile, the Giants are sitting at 0-2. Although it is early, New York a lot to work to do on both offense and defense before they can win many games. Meanwhile, Chicago’s defense did a very good job against New York. However, their offense must play with much more consistency.
This Bears defense is good enough to carry Chicago to a Wild Card position if they can keep it up. However, if the offense was more consistent they could grow into being legitimate Super Bowl contenders.
The Giants’ offense was coming into the season with plenty of hype. However, all those aspirations are slipping away…very quickly. With Saquon Barkley out for the season with a torn ACL, New York’s offense may not be able to recover. They still have players with potential, but without Barkley, the Giants aren’t much of a playoff threat this season.
Holding a 2-0 record is obviously the goal for any team. However, for the Bears, both of their games came down to the wire. If Chicago wants to compete for a playoff spot, the Bears have to play better for a full game. The Bears face three very difficult games coming up against the Falcons, Colts, and Buccaneers. These games will be a great gauge on just how good this Chicago team is.
With that being said, let’s take a look at four major takeaways from the New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears matchup in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season.
