Preseason Week 2 - Giants 41 - Bears 13
Giants' impressive win comes at a cost
EAST RUTHERFORD,N.J. -- Brandon Jacobs scored on an 18-yard run, Domenik Hixon caught a 5-yard touchdown pass and the New York Giants cashed in on big special teams plays in a 41-13 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears that was marred by the loss of starting cornerback Terrell Thomas to a major knee injury.
Thomas tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee with 22 seconds left in the first half in a collision with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.
ACL injuries are usually season ending, and this one probably will cost the Giants (1-1) their leading tackler from last season.
Robbie Gould had two field goals for the Bears (1-1), who struggled again on offense despite having Jay Cutler (12 of 21 for 171 yards) play the first half.
