Mitchell Trubisky threw two touchdown passes and the Chicago Bears hung on to beat the New York Giants 17-13 on Sunday.
But it’s Giants fans that are hanging on by a thread after watching their star running back Saquon Barkley carted off the field after suffering a right knee injury on the opening play of the second quarter.
The Bears improved to 2-0 after grabbing a 17-0 halftime lead and then withstood a spirited Giants team attempt to comeback without their best offensive piece.
The Giants fell to 0-2 refused to go quietly as Barkley’s backup Dion Lewis made it a seven-point game when he plowed in from the 1 in the opening minute of the fourth.
James Bradbury then intercepted Trubisky when he ripped the ball out of Allen Robinson's hands, leading to a 37-yard field goal by Graham Gano that cut it to 17-13 with 7:43 remaining.
The Giants drove to the 10 late in the game before Golden Tate got flagged for pushing off against Eddie Jackson on this play near the goal line on an incomplete pass as time expired.
And while there was no official word yet, the G-men fear Barkley tore the ACL in his right knee on this play. The team says he will have more tests today to determine the extent of the injury.
