Victories aren't quite the point of the NFL preseason, but Chicago Bears backup quarterback Jason Campbell has to feel good nonetheless about leading his team to a victory in the fourth quarter of Friday night's game vs. the New York Giants. The Bears started off sluggishly in the first half, but scored 13 unanswered points in the second half to take home a 20-17 victory.
On the night, Campbell was 12-of-19 for 101 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. He fared much better than Jay Cutler, who had a rough night vs. New York's first team defense, going 9-of-21 for 96 yards and a touchdown, which he threw to Brandon Marshall for the pair's first connection in Bears uniforms.
The Giants' first team offense had little trouble with Chicago's first team defense. Eli Manning went a crisp 17-of-21 for 148 yards and a touchdown while rookie running back David Wilson rushed for 49 yards on five carries.
The Bears will travel to Cleveland on Thursday for their final game of the 2012 preseason.
