Giants Win Fifth Straight, Colts Beat Titans

Giants Win Fifth Straight, Colts Beat Titans

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jimmy Butler scored a season-high 40 points and Isaiah Canaan added a season-high 17 in the Chicago Bulls' fifth victory in six games, 118-110 over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

NY struggled to stop Bears running back Jordan Howard, who rushed for 72 yards on 12 carries in the first half while quarterback Jay Cutler completed 11 of 14 passes in the half for 126 yards and one touchdown.

He says the Bears are "gonna tear" them up and sack Manning when they visit the Giants this week. Against the Bears, he came up with two clutch drive-ending tackles and recovered a muffed Dwayne Harris punt that prevented the game from getting away from the Giants.

The number of fewer wins that John Fox has in his first 25 games than Marc Trestman did from the start of the 2013 season through the first nine games of 2014.

Giants kicker Robbie Gould, who had never missed two extra points in the same season during 11 years with the Chicago Bears, missed twice in the same game during Sunday's 22-16 Giants win at windy MetLife Stadium.

"We did find a way, that's the resiliency of this team", guard Marshall Newhouse said. The Giants' defense as a whole during the team's four game winning streak has ten sacks and seven interceptions. People see that as a negative and I don't see why.

"I felt fresh legs, ever since I came back from the injury I've been feeling good", said Floyd of his improved play.

It is a stark contrast to last year's Giants team that folded like a cheap suit come crunch time.

Asked if the game had slowed down for him this season, Collins smiled.

"It just says that we can get the job done", said Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who had 2 ½ sacks in the fourth quarter against the Bears, almost doubling his total (1½) for the first 9 ¾ games this season. WR Odell Beckham Jr. has six TD catches in past five and is fastest player in National Football League history (36 games) to reach 3,500 yards receiving.

On the Other Hand: He won't be playing against a banged up Bears offensive line each week. Coming into Week 11 at 6-3, they look like a legitimate contender in every sense of the word.

In keeping with the rest of the Bears' season, their trip to Tampa last weekend was one that they'd probably prefer to forget. Stick around. We've got all of the pre-game analysis before the match-up.

"It was what it was, you put on the film, you'll see". "I know Leonard felt a good connection there during the process". Zach Miller tied for No. 3 among tight ends with 44 catches.

Rashad Jennings will be everything for the Giants offense going forward. 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.

Two weeks ago, the Bears played very well in beating the Vikings, a team that ran the Giants off the field. Miller had to leave the game early in the second half with a possible broken foot.

The Bears led 16-6 midway through the second half and took a 16-9 lead into halftime.

Josh Sitton left with an ankle injury and was unable to return. It was the first time in 20 years Chicago had traded up in the first round.

The Giants spent a fortune on Olivier Vernon, Damon Harrison and Janoris Jenkins to re-shape their defense. Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery served the first game of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancers.

Cruz has been dealing with an ankle injury that sidelined him in Week 10.

The Bears welcome Tennessee to town next Sunday.
