Bears Lose Wild Overtime Contest To Giants

Trubisky is not expected to face the New York Giants in Week 13, according to sources.

New York's Alec Ogletree didn't even have to beat the pass block as Daniel tossed his first attempt of the game straight into the arms of the linebacker. The second-year quarterback was a participant in the Bears' practice on Wednesday.

Instead, Chicago tight end Daniel Brown plopped on top of it and the Bears had hope - and soon a touchdown, scored on a Philly special from the 1-yard line as time expired.

Mitchell Trubisky is expected to miss Sunday's game as he recovers from a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder.

The Fox play-by-play announcer said Hicks had assured him he would just be a lead blocker in that situation, but that was obvious deception as Chase Daniel handed the ball to Hicks, who barreled in for a touchdown.

Chicago was hoping it could ride that momentum longer to give their top quarterback another week of rest against a NY team in the midst of a disaster of a season. Timing would be down, communication would be in sync, and Matt Nagy's play-calling could help dice up a last-place Giants team. His Bears squad now sits atop of the NFC North standings with a record of 8-3 with five games remaining in the regular season.
