When these two teams met last preseason, some knucklehead fan ran out on to the field at New Meadowlands Stadium. The Giants won that game 41-13, in a game much closer that the score would indicate. Tonight should be a real test for the Bears and their offensive line. Hopefully it's a test they pass.
