(CHICAGO) – The Chicago Bears were happy with another close win, while the New York Giants have greater concerns than their 0-2 record: a potentially serious injury to star running back Saquon Barkley. Mitchell Trubisky threw two touchdown passes and the Bears hung on to beat the Giants 17-13 on Sunday. The Bears (2-0) chewed up New York early on, grabbing a 17-0 halftime lead, and withstood a big push a week after rallying from 17 down at Detroit for their first season-opening win in seven years. The Giants (0-2) refused to go quietly even though they lost Barkley to a right knee injury on the opening play of the second quarter. New York's Dion Lewis made it a seven-point game when he plowed in from the 1 in the opening minute of the fourth. James Bradberry 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 Bears were able to drive down and miss a 50 yard field goal attempt. The Giants drove to the 10 before Golden Tate got called for pushing off against Eddie Jackson near the goal line on an incomplete pass as time expired. Trubisky completed 18 of 28 passes for 190 yards. He threw two interceptions and was sacked four times. He hit David Montgomery for a 28 yard touchdown on the game's opening possession and added a 15-yarder to Drarnell Mooney in the closing seconds of the first half to give the Bears a 17-0 lead. Montgomery ran for 82 yards. Robert Quinn had a strip sack in the first quarter that led to a field goal in his Bears debut after missing the opener with an ankle injury. Khalil Mack had his first sack of the season and recovered a fumble. And Chicago held New York to 295 yards after giving up 426 last week.
