Game Balls and Goats: Week 11 Edition

The NY Giants have won their fifth straight game with a 22-16 victory over the Chicago Bears at MetLife Stadium.

Game Balls: The New York Giants defense looked disoriented in the first half, allowing the Chicago Bears to capitalize on a slew of ineffective arm-tackles. Big Blue made some great half time adjustments, coming in for the kill to close out the game. JPP came up big and Bears' QB Jay Cutler undeniably felt his presence. The Giants' hard-hitting DE put crucial pressure on Cutler and finished the game with 2.5 sacks. 
Adding to a tremendous defensive effort, the Giants secondary helped cap off the victory with some big plays in the second half. The Landon Collins show continued with an incredible pick in the fourth quarter to seal the win. The second-year safety had the crowd on their feet with his fifth interception of the season. 
Although the Giants started the game with some offensive woes, Eli Manning remained poised. The Giants' QB was highly effective out of the pocket, finishing the game with 227 passing yards, one TD, and no interceptions. His consistency has been a key aspect of the Giants winning streak. 
Goats: What happened to Bears' LB Pernell McPhee? He vowed to take down Eli Manning despite the Bears' limited pass rush and losing record. McPhee did not make an impact in the game, finishing with just 1 tackle and no sacks.
