Sunday’s victory for the New York Giants over the Chicago Bears may go down as one of the crazier finishes you’ll see to a game this season.
After the Giants appeared dead for the first half, they rebounded to take a 10-point lead and it looked like the game was wrapped up. But then the Bears recovered an onside kick and tied the game with no time left, forcing overtime.
The Giants, though, found a way to persevere and held on for a 30-27 victory over the first place Bears for their fourth win of the season.
Following the crazy victory for the Giants at MetLife Stadium, whose stock was up and down after Sunday’s contest?
On Sunday, Ogletree may have had his best game with the Giants and his presence was felt from the second play, when he picked off Chase Daniel and returned it for a touchdown. Ogletree added a second interception later in the game.
For someone who has been heavily criticized for his play in pass coverage, Ogletree had a tremendous game.
The Giants’ middle linebacker also had 11 total tackles to go with the two interceptions he had.
Why Curtis Riley continues to see the field for the Giants is a mystery, because he’s clearly the weak link of the defense and especially in the secondary.
Never mind the poor tackling and the bad angles he takes on plays. Riley had a chance to make an easy interception on Chase Daniel and flat out dropped it.
What made Riley’s performance worse was seeing that Andrew Adams, who has released in the preseason by the Giants, had three interceptions for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Guess the Giants released the wrong safety in the summer. Riley shouldn’t be seeing the field as much as he does.
