Keep in mind the last time the Bears had a bye, they were falling off their most amazing diversion in somewhere around six seasons — a 48-10 shellacking of the Bucs — and afterward took seven days off and returned level and careless right off the bat in Miami, never entirely recouped and tumbled to a second-rate group, 31-28.
Granted, the Bears had just a mini-bye after playing on Thanksgiving Day, but will they have learned from the Miami experience?
The Giants are a bad football team that has played much better the last five weeks, going 2-3 with all three losses by one score — 20-23 at Atlanta, 13-20 at home to Washington and 22-25 at Philadelphia last week after blowing a 19-3 late second-quarter lead.
Eli Manning will be a stationary target for the Bears' pass rush, though, and OBJ is unhappy again, complaining about first-year Giants coach Pat Shurmur's game plan last Sunday after snaring just five of nine targets for 85 yards.
Beckham's battle with Kyle Fuller will be fun, and rookie sensation Saquon Barkley will make some plays for the Giants, but in the end, the Bears 'D' will be too much for Manning and Co.
