Bradshaw, Giants outlast Bills; Brady, Pats overturn Cowboys
Question of the Day
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 104 yards and a career-best three touchdowns, and Lawrence Tynes kicked a go-ahead 23-yard field goal with 1:32 remaining to give the New York Giants a 27-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Bradshaw scored on three 1-yard runs and had a 30-yard run to help set up Tynes’ winner as the Giants rebounded from a bad loss to Seattle last weekend by limiting the high-scoring Bills to seven second-half points.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (21 of 30 for 244 yards) threw touchdown passes of 60 yards to Naaman Roosevelt and 9 yards to Stevie Johnson, but his final attempt was batted down by Jason Pierre-Paul on a fourth-and-5 from the Bills 25 to preserve the win.
Patriots 20, Cowboys 16
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Hernandez with 22 seconds left, and New England overturned Dallas.
Dan Bailey’s 26-yard field goal had broken a 13-13 tie with 5:13 left. Each team ran one series before the Patriots got the ball after a punt with 2:30 remaining. Brady then completed eight of nine passes for 78 yards on an 80-play drive capped by his pass to Hernandez in the middle of the end zone.
New England won despite its first two lost fumbles of the season and Brady’s two interceptions.
Dallas ended a five-game road winning streak after a bye.
Buccaneers 26, Saints 20
TAMPA, Fla. — Josh Freeman threw for 303 yards and two touchdowns, Earnest Graham rushed for 109 yards in place of injured starter LeGarrette Blount, and Tampa Bay outlasted New Orleans.
The win pulled the Buccaneers into a first-place tie with the Saints in the NFC South and snapped New Orleans’ four-game winning streak.
A bad tone was set on the first drive for the Saints when coach Sean Payton toppled to the ground during a collision with New Orleans tight end Jimmy Graham in the first quarter. Payton got his left leg caught under Graham as he was tackled on the sideline, suffering a torn ligament and a broken bone.
The Saints had a chance to take the lead late, but quarterback Drew Brees was intercepted in the end zone on a fourth-down pass. Brees became the first passer ever with four consecutive 350-yard games, but also threw three interceptions.
Falcons 31, Panthers 17
ATLANTA — Michael Turner ran for 139 yards and two touchdowns, Matt Ryan scored the tie-breaking TD with 7 minutes remaining, and Corey Peters came up with a huge interception, helping Atlanta seal a victory over Carolina.
