*The three players the Giants declared out of the game on their final injury report were all wide receivers: Kadarius Toney (shoulder), John Ross (knee/COVID-19 ramp up) and Collin Johnson (hamstring). Darius Slayton did not play after he was placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list this week. Sterling Shepard, C.J. Board and Dante Pettis are on injured reserve.

*The Giants activated six players from the practice squad for Sunday's game: receivers Alex Bachman, David Sills and Pharoh Cooper, defensive tackles Woodrow Hamilton and David Moa, and offensive tackle Derrick Kelly.

*Center Billy Price announced on Instagram his wife, Taylor, had a miscarriage 15 weeks into her pregnancy. He was excused from practice this week and did not play after being listed as doubtful. Matt Skura started in his place.

"We fully support Billy, fully support Billy as an organization, him and his wife as just individuals and their family and what they're going through right now," coach Joe Judge said on Friday. "We left the door open to Billy in a lot of ways in terms of whatever he needs from us. When I talked to him earlier in the week, I let him know, 'Hey, listen, if you've got to come in here and let this be a distraction, if you want to stay engaged with the game plan, if you want to come out and practice and blow off some steam and hit the weight room, whatever you've got to do.' He's dealing with something that a lot of us have been blessed that we haven't had to deal with. He's going through something personally that we've got to make sure we account for and give him support as an organization, as a person."

*Right tackle Nate Solder returned to the starting lineup after a stint on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.

*After Jake Fromm made his first NFL start last week, Mike Glennon started on Sunday for the fourth time in five games since Daniel Jones suffered a season-ending neck injury. Glennon's first two drop-backs resulted in a strip-sack, which the Bears recovered, and an interception. Chicago capitalized on both turnovers and took a 14-0 lead less than seven minutes into the game. Glennon was strip-sacked twice more in the second half and threw another interception.

*The Giants had minus-10 team passing yards into the fourth quarter with four sacks for a loss of 34 yards.

*In his return to Chicago, where he tore his ACL last season, Saquon Barkley ran for a season-high 102 yards on 21 carries. Devontae Booker also added 46 yards on the ground as the Giants ran the ball 40 times compared to just 11 pass attempts.


*Defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence was placed on the COVID-19 reserve list this week and missed the game.

*Defensive back Julian Love was activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Love, who grew up in the Chicago area, had interceptions in each of the Giants' games at Soldier Field the previous two seasons.

*Lorenzo Carter continued his late-season surge with two tackles for loss, including a sack for the third consecutive week.


Cooper misplayed a kickoff late in the first half, thinking the ball would bounce into the end zone for a touchback. When it didn't, he had to pick it up inside the five-yard line. Three plays later, the Bears forced a safety.
