Here’s the AP recap:

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Aldrick Rosas kicked a 44-yard field goal in overtime and the New York Giants beat NFC North-leading Chicago 30-27 Sunday, snapping the Bears’ five-game winning streak.

The Giants (4-8) blew a 10-point lead in the final 1:13 of regulation. They didn’t nail down the win until Janoris Jenkins knocked away a deep fourth-down pass to Taylor Gabriel after quarterback Chase Daniel fumbled on consecutive plays on the rainy afternoon to set up a fourth-and-8.

Chicago (8-4) forced overtime by getting a 21-yard field goal by Cody Parkey and a 1-yard touchdown pass from halfback Tarik Cohen to Anthony Miller as time expired in the fourth quarter. The trick-play touchdown was set up by a recovered onside kick by Daniel Brown on a play Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not dive for the loose ball. Then came a questionable pass interference call in the end zone against cornerback B.W. Webb with :03 to go.

Giants vs. Bears: Key matchups to watch

Ever since joining the Bears in a preseason trade from the Oakland Raiders, linebacker/DE Khalil Mack has put together an impressive case for the NFL Defensive Player of The Year award.

Sunday, it will be Giants right tackle Chad Wheeler who will be tasked with keeping Mack out of the backfield and helping keep Manning upright.

“He does a good job getting sacks, causing fumbles, interceptions – he does it all,” Manning said this week. “They’re sound all over. They play good football, not giving up many big plays. Teams aren’t scoring a ton on them. They’re creating turnovers. They’re playing good football, so we got to do the same. We have to be very sound; we have to be discipline, and try to eliminate them from making big plays.”

Mack enters Sunday’s game with 8.5 sacks.
