New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears Week Two Prediction

Despite the fact that the Giants and Bears faced off against one another in 2019, their 2020 game is going to be much different. Both the Bears and Giants have changed quite a bit since their week 12 matchup in 2019, and for that reason I see the 2020 game being unlike that of the 2019 game.

In 2020, I see the Giants offense playing much better than they did against the Bears in 2019. With only 243 yards of offense against Chicago last season, the Giants weren’t exactly giving themselves many opportunities to score, and that was proven with the final score being 19-14 Bears.

This season, I think the Giants will go for more than 243 yards of total offense against the Bears, and more than 14 points to go with it as well. I see the Giants tearing apart the Bears questionable secondary, going for around 400 yards of total offense, most of it being through the air.

I think Darius Slayton and Evan Engram will each have big games as the Giants favor the passing game more than the rushing game with Khalil Mack standing in their way.

On defense, I think the Giants will be able to slow down the Bears, just like they did in week 12 of last season. With the secondary bolstered heading into 2020, the Giants will be able to stop whichever quarterback the Bears decide to trot out.

The Bears have a rather talented receiver corps with Allen Robinson, Ted Ginn jr., Jimmy Graham, and others, but I believe the Giants will be able to stop them, helping out their offense.

Prediction: Giants 31 Bears 20

I think the 2020 game between New York and Chicago will be a higher scoring affair than their 2019 matchup, and I also believe the outcome will be different as well. With a new and improved secondary and offensive line, the Giants will be able to get more done on both ends of the ball.

With the Bears defense taking a hit heading into 2020, the Giants will have the opportunity to do a lot more on the offensive end than they did last season.

All in all, everything will go a lot better for the Giants this season, ultimately leading to a Big Blue victory, and potentially the first of the season.
