Giants 17, Bears 3

Giants honor past, especially defense

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — On a night the team inaugurated its ring of honor, the Giants defense turned in a performance that its famed predecessors would certainly approve, including 10 sacks.

The Giants knocked out Jay Cutler with a nine-sack first half, sent his replacement to the sideline late in the fourth quarter and limited previously unbeaten Chicago to 110 total yards. The league record for sacks is 12.

The Chiefs, who were idle Sunday, are the last unbeaten team. Kansas City was 4-12 last season.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 129 yards and a touchdown and Brandon Jacobs, whose fourth-quarter fumble set up Robbie Gould's 40-yard field goal for Chicago, capped the scoring with a 2-yard touchdown run for the Giants.

Veteran Todd Collins replaced Cutler but was sidelined with four minutes left after a blindside hit from linebacker Michael Boley.

Three members of the Mara family, three coaches who led the Giants to titles and 11 Hall of Fame players were among 30 men inducted into the team's new ring of honor at halftime at New Meadowlands Stadium.
