Bears drop to 2-8 with loss to Giants

Posted:
NEW YORK (AP) -

Eli Manning threw a go-ahead 15-yard touchdown pass to rookie Sterling Shepard in the third quarter as the New York Giants rallied for their fifth straight win with a 22-16 decision over the Chicago Bears on a windy Sunday.

Manning (21 of 36 for 227) also threw another third-quarter touchdown to Will Tye, Rashad Jennings scored on a 2-yard run and Robbie Gould kicked a 46-yard field goal on a day he missed two extra points.

Chicago got to the New York 30 in the final two minutes but Jason Pierre-Paul had a 13-yard sack and Cutler was picked off by Collins, his fifth interception in the last four games.

The Bears scored their first three possessions and took a surprising 16-6 lead. Cutler found Miller for a 19-yard TD on the opening possession. A 34-yard pass to Miller set up Barth's 40-yard field goal and Langford's short TD lunge put Chicago ahead halfway through the second quarter.

A couple of fourth-down gambles got the Giants nine points in the half. A 15-yard pass to Shepard on a fourth-and-2 at the Bears 17, set up Jennings' TD run. A 5-yard pass to Jennings on fourth-and-2 at Bears 33 set up Gould's 46 yard field goal with 3:33 left in the half.
