Soldier Field was rocking for Thursday Night Football, and the Chicago Bears squeaked out a victory over the winless Gants.

In a game that was much closer than many people expected, the Chicago Bears and New York Giants literally battled all the way to the last minute of the game.  Tim Jennings shut things down with an interception of Eli Manning with just under 2:00 left in the 4th quarter, preserving a nail-biter that many Bears fans thought should be a blowout.
