Whitehurst lifts Seahawks over Giants; Saints, Steelers prevail
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst threw a go-ahead 27-yard touchdown pass to Doug Baldwin, and Brandon Browner returned an interception 94 yards to clinch the Seattle Seahawks' 36-25 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday.
Whitehurst, who replaced the injured Tarvaris Jackson in the third quarter, led the Seahawks on an 80-yard touchdown drive, which he capped with his pass to a wide-open Baldwin with 2:37 left on a play that the Giants seemed to stop after defensive end Osi Umenyiora jumped offside.
The Giants, who had staged fourth-quarter rallies to win their past two games, mounted another late drive, but Eli Manning’s pass tipped off receiver Victory Cruz’s hands, bounced off Kam Chancelor and was picked off in the air at the 6-yard line by Browner, who went the distance to ice the game.
Saints 30, Panthers 27
Brees threw for 359 yards and two touchdowns, including a nearly flawless final drive in which he completed 8 of 9 passes for 80 yards to take back momentum.
Newton threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, including the go-ahead 5-yard scoring pass to tight end Greg Olsen for a 27-23 lead with 12:32 to play
Steelers 38, Titans 17
Patriots 30, Jets 21
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for a career-high 136 yards and two touchdowns, and New England beat New York with a vastly improved defense.
Tom Brady had another strong game, completing 24 of 33 passes for 321 yards and one touchdown as the Patriots scored at least 30 points for the 13th straight regular-season game.
