Was there anything to be learned from the New York Giants’ 30-27 overtime victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday? As a matter of fact, there were a few things…
Let’s take a look:
“It’s fun to win.” – Giants head coach Pat Shurmur.
Big Blue went into the bye week with a disappointing 1-7 record. They came out with a bit of a chip on their shoulder. They had been in a slew of close games and knew they could compete. Well, here they are, 3-1 so far in the second half of the season. What’s changed?
They are scoring more points, for one. Before the bye, they scored under 20 points in five of their eight games. Since coming back they’ve scored 27, 38, 22 and 30. Veteran tackle Nate Solder knows a few things about winning, come from the New England Patriots:
“I think that’s the whole shift they’re trying to make is a winning culture and so winning games I think is doing that, but I think more than that is being a really solid team after a season that’s been so tough, number of wins we’ve had and how close we’ve lost and all those sort of things and it speaks to the resiliency of the guys, it speaks about the type of guys we have in the locker room and we just got to keep doing it and moving forward and believing in each other and doing it together,” he said.
