Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - After the Chicago Bears' promising start was quelled by back-to-back losses, the outspoken Brandon Marshall wanted more targets.
Jay Cutler listened.
Marshall caught nine passes for 87 yards and two touchdowns in the Bears' 27-21 win over New York, sending the Giants to their first 0-6 start since 1976.
After hauling in 15 receptions for 217 yards and two touchdowns over his first two games, the often double-teamed Marshall was limited to 161 yards and a score on 16 catches over his last three tilts.
With the Giants trailing 27-21 with 5:21 left, New York got the ball at its own 15. Eli Manning drove his troops to the Chicago 36 before he tossed his NFL-leading eighth fourth-quarter interception to Tim Jennings with 1:54 remaining to seal the outcome.
