Worst Saturday Night Football Game Ever: Chicago Bears vs. New York Giants

On October 3rd, 2010 was one of the worst NFL games I have ever seen. The Chicago Bears went to New York to play the Giants in their new stadium. Every play basically resulted in sacks, interceptions, fumbles, or a sack fumble.

Jay Cutler was knocked out of the game, after the first half, with a concussion. Jay Cutler was sacked 10 times, 1 interception and 3 sack fumbles (lost only 1). Todd Collins, Bears backup quarterback, come into play during the 3rd and 4th quarter before he got injured himself. Todd Collins was intercepted by Deon Grant, Giants Safety. After Collins was injured, in the 4th quarter, then the Bears had to go to there 3rd string quarterback, Caleb Hanie, who came out throwing. Hanie ended up with the best rating of 102.1, Cutler's rating was 40.7, and Collins rating was 8.1. Hanie and Collins both recorded 36 yards, while Cutler barely out did them with 42 yards.

Eli Manning unlike the Bears was the only the quarterback that played for the Giants. Eli Manning was sacked 2 times, 0 interceptions, and 2 fumbles (lost both). Terrell Thomas intercepted a Cutler pass but only returned it 1 yard and Deon Grant intercepted a Todd Collins pass for 0 yards.

The score was 3-0 Giants all the way untill the 3rd quarter. The Giants had 1 touchdown in the 3rd quarter and had 1 touchdown in the 4th quarter. The Bears was able to make on field goal in the 4th quarter to put them on the board. The final score was 17-3.
