During the second half of the Giants' game against Chicago, New York went with a trick play to give the star receiver a chance at showing off his arm.

The Chicago Bears played without their starting quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky, for the second straight week. The road to the playoffs always has its bumps in the road and the Bears experienced one Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

By the stat line, Howard had arguably his best half of the season against the Giants.

To make things worse, he threw an interception while the Bears were deep in Giants territory. The Bears had 106 yards on the ground before halftime, but would abandon the run the second half as they fell behind.

Watch the tape and you'll see there is nothing wrong with Howard physically, as he ran with great power and burst, and he bounced several runs stuffed at the hole for nice gains outside in vintage Howard style.

In the second half, Nagy and the coaching staff thought they could beat the Giants through the air and avoided rushing the ball unless they had to. But if you want to know if your favorite team is for real, you see how they handle adversity.

The Giants did take the lead on only four plays to start the second half. The second-year quarterback was a participant in the Bears' practice on Wednesday.

Yeah, it's only two pass attempts, but that's still pretty darn impressive.

National Football League games are played on the field, not on paper, and the New York Giants did more to earn their 30-27 overtime victory Sunday than the Bears did. But the offense took the opening possession of overtime and drove the ball 49 yards to setup Aldrick Rosas's go-ahead 44-yard field goal.

Besides the Cohen pass on what appeared to be a sweep, the Giants saw Beckham throw and catch touchdowns, and Chicago nose tackle Akiem Hicks dive over on fourth down from 1 yard on a play made famous by Perry in the Bears glory days in the mid-1980s. A couple of costly mistakes proved to be the game's deciding factor. In a game they lost by three points, there are a dozen or so plays you can point to and say, "this is why we lost the game".
