Giants (1-1) Vs. Bears (1-1) Preview: Game Time, TV, Radio Schedule, Injury News

The New York Giants (1-1) will host the Chicago Bears (1-1) Friday night in the third preseason game, generally considered the most important of the four exhibition contests. Starters should play well into the third quarter, so we should get a good read on where the Giants are as the Sept. 5 season opener against the Dallas Cowboys approaches.

With the regular season closing in, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin knows what he wants to see against the Bears.

"Offensively we need to go. We need to get something done here. We have some people who need to show that. Yes, quite frankly, we had a special teams error in both games. That’s got to be eliminated. We’ve got to put the ball in the end zone, that’s something that’s a challenge for the offensive team," Coughlin said. "The defense played well last week. We had the ball run on us the week before, so it’s a consistency thing. Can we go do that week in and week out? Against a team that scored a lot of points the other day and moved right down the field, advancing the ball in the air. It’s a good football team. It’s time for us to start to move in the direction of the execution and the performance being at a high level."
