The Giants’ battered offensive line will face a talented Bears front on Sunday with Mack leading the way. The coaching staff has been widely criticized for not making adjustments quick enough or not at all.

Shula was asked if he has to do anything special this week with both starting tackles (Nate Solder and Mike Remmers) and tight ends Rhett Ellison and Evan Engram banged up.

“Those guys are really good players, and they’re not the only two that can rush the passer,” Shula said of Mack and linebacker Leonard Floyd. “But yeah, we have to mix our protections. We have to get the ball out. We have to stay out of third and long. As we say, stay ahead of the chains. Stay on schedule. Then whether or not it’s having a guy help chip, as we say.

“But you can’t do it every play, and they know that. They’re good at that. They’re not just good pass rushers. They have good schemes and they understand when you’re trying to keep guys in, it’s harder to throw the ball down field with less guys. It’s going to be a combination of all of those things. We have to be able to make things happen on first and second down. Stay out of third down. Make first downs on first or second down.”
