The Bears marched down the field, getting down to the one-yard line, with help from a fourth down completion from Chase Daniel to Tarik Cohen, who had 143 yards receiving and 30 rushing yards in regulation.

His presence has helped lift the Bears to the next level defensively, now ranking fourth overall along with being 10th against the pass, sixth in sacks, first with 20 interceptions, and second against the run and with 19.2 points allowed. 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. It took only two plays before Mitchell Trubisky's replacement threw a pick-six and helplessly got run over by the New York Giants' defense.

The Cardinals struggled early offensively but ended up with six plays of 20 yards or longer, a lot of them in the second half. He touched the ball 11 times in the first half and then all but disappeared until midway through the fourth quarter.

A 36-yard field goal Parkey got the Bears within 24-17 in the third quarter.

Akiem Hicks is enjoying a standout season as a defensive tackle for the Chicago Bears, but coach Matt Nagy made sure Hicks would remember this season for another reason. Last Thursday, against a woebegone Detroit team, Daniel went 27-for-37 passing with 230 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-16 victory. 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.
