The Giants are now 0-6 for the first time since 1976.

Eli Manning and the New York Giants used to make magic in the fourth quarter. Now, all they do is make a mess. The Giants fell to 0-6 with a 27-21 loss to the Chicago Bears Thursday night, losing a chance at a come-from-behind victory when a Manning pass for Brandon Myers went off his hands and was intercepted by Tim Jennings with 2:02 left in the game.

The Giants are now 0-6 for the first time since 1976. That year they started the season 0-9, finishing 3-11.

"We did a lot of good things. We didn't win," said head coach Tom Coughlin. "We played hard, we played four good solid quarters."

The Giants had driven from their own 10-yard line to the Bears 35 when Manning tried to hit Myers across the middle. He had Myers open but threw the ball just out of the tight end's reach.

"I threw it a little too high," Manning said. "Had a guy open."

Manning was intercepted three times Thursday, including twice in his first five throws. The second interception was returned 48 yards for a touchdown by Jennings, giving the Bears a 7-0 lead less than a minute into the game. Manning now has 15 interceptions this season, the same number he threw all of last year.

"I feel like I'm not doing my part. Feel bad for my coaches. My teammates," Manning said. "Guys are doing their part. I need to start doing mine."

Manning finished the game 14-of-26 for 239 yards with a touchdown to go along with the three interceptions.

Brandon Jacobs carried 22 times for 106 yards for the Giants, their first 100-yard rushing game of the season. It is the first time Jacobs has topped 100 yards since Dec. 11, 2011 against the Dallas Cowboys.

The game was tied 14-14 in the second quarter after a 37-yard pass from Manning to Rueben Randle for a touchdown, but the Bears got a 4-yard pass from Jay Cutler to Brandon Marshall and a 40-yard field goal from Robbie Gould to take a 24-14 halftime lead.

A 52-yard field goal by Gould gave Chicago a 27-14 lead with 11:23 left in the third.

The Giants' final touchdown came when Jacobs punctuated a 9-play, 91-yard drive wtiha 1-yard run to make the score 27-21 entering the fourth quarter.

NOTE: The Giants did manage to avoid becoming the first team in NFL history to give up 30 or more points in their first six games.
