Giants lose cornerback in triumph

EAST RUTHERFORD,N.J. — Brandon Jacobs scored on an 18-yard run, Domenik Hixon caught a 5-yard touchdown pass and the New York Giants cashed in on big special teams plays in a 41-13 preseason victory over the Chicago Bears that was marred by the loss of starting cornerback Terrell Thomas to a major knee injury.

Thomas tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee with 22 seconds left in the first half in a collision with defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Robbie Gould had two field goals for the Bears (1-1), who struggled again on offense despite having Jay Cutler (12 of 21 for 171 yards) play the first half.

David Carr, who is battling Sage Rosenfels for the backup job to Eli Manning, threw for two touchdowns, with the second covering 17 yards to Daniel Coats in the fourth quarter.
