The Bears are once again rank among the best teams in the league at forcing turnovers. The Giants, on the other hand, have 10 turnovers in three games, which just makes Bears linebacker Lance Briggs want to add to that total when the two teams meet on Sunday night at New Meadowlands Stadium.
"Licking your chops," Briggs said when asked what the Giants turnover total means to him. "As a defense, if a team is turning the ball over you want to get the ball out. We pride ourselves on stuff like that. When we get the opportunity we have to do it."
Brian Urlacher seconded that emotion.
"We'd like to get some more," he said. "If we can get a takeaway --- three, four, five a game --- that would be big for us. Takeaways are a huge stat in the NFL. If you're plus 2 in the takeaway category, you're probably gonna win the game. Just don't give it away on offense, and take it away on defense, and you'll have a good chance to win the game."
