How did each Chicago Bears unit do versus the Giants in Week 2?

It wasn’t a display of total dominance from start to finish, but the Chicago Bears managed to come away with a 17-13 victory over the New York Giants in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. The Bears (2-0) appeared to pick up where they left off in the fourth quarter of their Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions.

However, the team faltered later in the game and let the Giants come close to a comeback victory. No matter how they got it, this win has the Bears tied for first place in the NFC North, and in good shape going into Week 3.

The offense had a balanced attack, with Chicago’s running backs combining for 28 carries to go along with the passing game’s 28 pass attempts. In addition, they showed improvement on their third-down conversions with a 56-percent conversion rate. However, they barely gained over 300 yards of total offense on the afternoon, turned the ball over twice, and allowed four sacks.

The other side of the ball is where the Bears shined brighter. Chicago’s pass rush was alive and well against New York, as well as their play against the run. The Bears’ front seven recorded four sacks on the Giants’ quarterback and held the team to just 75 yards on the ground. The secondary even managed to snag their second interception of the season.

All in all, this Bears team has their arrow pointing in the right direction, but at the same time has a lot of room for improvement (more so on the offensive side). Without further ado, here is Chicago’s report card for Week 2.
