The skinny: If there ever was a remedy for the Bears to get back on track following turnover-happy losses to the Lions and Saints, it might just be the Giants. Along with the winless Steelers, the Giants are the biggest disappointment in the NFL this season. QB Eli Manning leads the NFL in interceptions, despite Jay Cutler's best efforts to catch him. And they've had four double-digit losses in five games. Finally, the experts have taken notice and have made the Bears the Giants' largest point spread deficit yet. At Soldier Field in a short week, against a turnover-prone team that is struggling on both sides of the ball, the Bears should be able to get back on track – if they take care of the ball, themselves, this week.

MattE's pick: Bears 29, Giants 17
