Despite little in the way of passing offense, the New York Giants toughed out a 20-12 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 4 to move to 3-1 — just one victory shy of last year's total.

Offensive spotlight: Giants running back Saquon Barkley handled a massive 31 carries en route to 146 yards on the ground. He broke four tackles on those rushes and gained 94 of his yards after contact — a 3.4-yard average.

Defensive spotlight: Dexter Lawrence tallied a ridiculous eight quarterback pressures from the interior — five hurries, one hit and two sacks. That total would clear his previous career high by two if it stands following PFF's review process.

Rookie spotlight: While Kayvon Thibodeaux posted four pressures, two were of the unblocked variety and one was a clean-up play. The rookie played 45 snaps on the day.

Offensive line spotlight: The Bears' six offensive linemen in the game combined to allow 14 pressures, with center Sum Mustipher accounting for seven. He earned a poor 8.3 pass-blocking grade on first review.
