Giants 41, Bears 13: That's Much Better

The New York Giants were looking for improvement in their second preseason game, following a 20-10 loss to Carolina. They found it Monday night with a 41-13 victory over the Chicago Bears.

All of the good things -- better offense, an interception by Mark Herzlich, a 97-yard run by Da'Rel Scott, much-improved play on special teams -- were overwhelmed, however, by the night's bad news. That, of course, was the season-ending injury to starting cornerback Terrell Thomas.

Thomas went down with a torn ACL while on a blitz late in the first half. He was able to walk off the field, but coach Tom Coughlin gave the bad news to ESPN sideline reporter Suzy Kolber when the second half began.

Who were you guys impressed with? At first glance, I loved the work done by Aaron Ross, Greg Jones, Herzlich, Devin Thomas, Victor Cruz and both Matt Dodge and Steve Weatherford.

Back with more in the morning.
