The defense was relentless, sacking Bears quarterback Jay Cutler nine times in the first half. It was the ninth and final sack of the first half that did him in sending him to the locker room with a concussion. The Giants didn't let up on either of Cutler's backups, as they both received hard hits as well, and 38-year-old second-stringer Todd Collins also went to the bench stunned by a tackle.
Needless to say, the Giants were hungry for a win, but they weren't the only teams out for blood on the gridiron during the NFL's Week 4. The Jacksonville Jaguars came up with an unbelievable victory at the foot of kicker Josh Scobee. With seconds left, Scobee set up for a 59-yard field goal and nailed it to win the game 31-28 in front of the Jacksonville fans. It's the third time since 2004 that Scobee has kicked a 50-yard-plus field goal to defeat the Colts.
Other upsets included the Baltimore Ravens taking a 17-14 win at Heinz Field and the Cleveland Browns upsetting the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in front of their devoted fan base.
