Giants vs. Bears: 5 Players to Watch

Back from their bye week, the Giants (2-8) will look to put an end to the team's six-game losing streak on Sunday against the Chicago Bears (4-6) at Soldier Field. The teams met last season in Week 13, when the Giants emerged with an overtime victory, 30-27.

Here are five players to watch:


WR Sterling Shepard: After missing the last five games with a concussion, it appears as if Shepard will make his long-awaited return to the field in Week 12. Shepard has 25 receptions for 267 yards and a touchdown in four games this season. His return would provide a boost, as Sunday would be just the second game that Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton have been in uniform together.


DL Dexter Lawrence: Lawrence has put together a strong rookie campaign, earning the ninth-highest grade among all interior defensive linemen from Pro Football Focus. The rookie picked up four hurries against the Jets in Week 10, and will face off against a Bears offensive line that has surrendered 30 sacks.


RT Mike Remmers: Remmers has been practicing in full following the bye, a good sign that he will play after missing Week 10 with a back injury. Remmers has a tough assignment this week as the veteran right tackle will look to limit the production of Khalil Mack, one of the league's top pass rushers.


WR Darius Slayton: Slayton enjoyed a breakout performance against the Jets, reeling in 10 passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns. It was the second multi-touchdown game for the rookie receiver, who leads the team and is tied for the NFL rookie lead with five receiving touchdowns. A battle against Chicago's defense will be a nice test for the young receiver.


QB Daniel Jones: Jones has already established the Giants' single-season rookie record with 187 completions. Heading into Sunday's battle against the Bears, Jones needs to register three pass attempts and 192 passing yards to break Charlie Conerly's franchise rookie marks for the two categories, which were set in 1948.
