Daniel is making his second straight start for the injured Trubisky while Chicago's QB1 nurses a shoulder injury that isn't expected to sideline him long-term. The trick-play touchdown was set up by a recovered onside kick by Daniel Brown on a play Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not dive for the loose ball.

The Giants (4-8) blew a 10-point lead in the final 1:13 of regulation.

Despite the Bears' valiant efforts, the Giants still managed to escape with a 30-27 win after scoring a 44-yard field goal on their first possession of overtime. The play then broke down, but Beckham improvised, ultimately tossing a ridiculous 49-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard.

A 36-yard field goal Parkey got the Bears within 24-17 in the third quarter.

The Maine Center for Disease Control says about 1,800 of the 37 million people diagnosed with HIV worldwide live in Maine. And around 5 million people are living with both HIV and viral hepatitis, with most of these people unaware.

Nevertheless, Bears backers were rewarded with a 23-16 victory.

Daniel has more than enough ability to lead Chicago to a win over the lowly Giants in advance of next week's Sunday night showdown against the Rams.
