The Bears' Jason Campbell had a solid night under center as the backup quarterback. He was 12-for-19 for 101 yards and a touchdown. Jay Cutler started and was slightly less impressive. He also had a touchdown, but completed fewer than half of his passes (9-21).
Eli Manning outdid both and was nearly flawless, completing 17 of his 21 passes. He and backup David Carr spread the wealth, connecting with 13 different receivers on the evening. Running back David Wilson also had a huge night for the Giants, rushing for 49 yards on only five carries. He was playing in place of starter Ahmad Bradshaw, who sat out with a hand injury, and also added two catches for 26 yards.
There were a couple of key injuries in the game. The Giants' Prince Amukamara was carted off with a high ankle sprain after tackling the Bears' Brandon Marshall. New York's Mathias Kiwanuka also left with a strained groin and did not return.
New York led 17-7 at halftime, but the second half belonged to Chicago. The Bears' Robbie Gould connected on field goals from 30 and 48 yards. Jason Campbell then connected with Joe Anderson on a 12-yard touchdown strike in the fourth quarter for the lead and the eventual win.
