GAME RECAP: GIANTS GRAB WIN OVER BUFFALO HEADING INTO BYE WEEK
Ahmad Bradshaw and Corey Webster probably wish the Giants played Buffalo more than once every four years, because the Bills bring out the best in them.
On Sunday, Bradshaw rushed for a season-high 104 yards and scored three one-yard touchdowns and Webster intercepted two passes as the Giants overcame an early deficit to defeat the Bills, 27-24, in MetLife Stadium. The Giants, who played without Justin Tuck, Chris Snee and Brandon Jacobs, won for the fourth time in five games and head into their bye week with a 4-2 record. They are 18-5 prior to a regular season bye, tying Dallas for the best record in such games.
Lawrence Tynes scored the game-winning points on a 23-yard field goal with 1:32 remaining. But Webster and Bradshaw both made huge contributions to help set up the score. Webster intercepted Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for the second time at the Giants' four-yard line with the score tied and only 4:02 remaining. Stevie Johnson's facemask penalty gave the Giants possession at the 19.
*Coach Coughlin: *"No turnovers and plus-two, 122 yards rushing and outstanding play. I thought Eli played very, very well. We did have some opportunities to run the ball and Bradshaw did a good job. The offensive line did a good job. We made the plays when we had to make them. We had a couple lapses on defense obviously for big plays but we settled in there and came out after the half and played much better. The drama obviously with the ball in the end zone and it is ruled no catch and then we get the field goal blocked. We don't come away with any points and that was quite a moment right there. To come back down the field against a very good football team who does an outstanding job in all three phases really, that is a very good win at home." FULL TRANSCRIPT
