This game pits the 0-5 New York Giants against the 3-2 Chicago Bears, who are trying to end their own 2-game skid. Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been particularly unhappy during the Bears’ skid.
He was a big part of the three wins and had balls coming his way. In the past two games the ball has gone more to Alshon Jeffery, who even had a 200-yard receiving game last week.
“Sometimes the formula may go to me, sometimes it doesn’t. Whatever’s best for the team to win, that’s what we need to do,” Marshall said, via ESPN. “I’m always going to be frustrated when our offense isn’t No. 1 in the league. I’m always going to be frustrated when we’re losing.”
That prompted quarterback Jay Cutler to talk things out with the receiver. Fortunately for Cutler, Marshall and the Bears, the Giants pass defense hasn’t been stellar. They’re allowing an average of 269.3 yards per game, a mark that is 22nd best in the league.
