Regulation wasn't long enough to decide the local rivalry that comes around only once every four years.

In the their first overtime game since 2013, the Giants fell 23-20 to the Jets after kicker Randy Bullock made a 31-yard field goal with 8:50 to play in overtime. Giants kicker Josh Brown then snapped his perfect season and missed a game-tying 48-yarder wide left.

WHAT'S NEXT 

The Giants (5-7) travel to Miami for a primetime game on "Monday Night Football" against the Dolphins, who improved to 5-7 with a 15-13 victory over the Ravens. Big Blue is 5-2 all-time against Miami and won the last two meetings in 2007 and 2011.

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE OFFENSE 

The Giants got back two starting offensive linemen on Sunday but lost two more. Center Weston Richburg and left guard Justin Pugh returned to the lineup, but right tackle Marshall Newhouse was unable to go after dealing with a back injury all week.

Rookie Bobby Hart, the Giants' seventh-round draft pick, started in his place. Then left tackle Ereck Flowers went down in the third quarter with an ankle sprain, and Pugh slid over to take his place while Dallas Reynolds came in at left guard.

Against the No.1 run defense -- and No. 3 overall in yards -- the Giants managed 355 yards of offense, 74 of which were on the ground.

Meanwhile, Odell Beckham Jr. notched his fifth-straight game with at least 100 receiving yards. It was his seventh of the season and 14th of his career in 24 games. His big play was a 72-yard touchdown from Eli Manning late in the first half. While surpassing Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Fouts (43,040) into 11th place on the all-time passing yards list, Manning went 18 of 34 for 297 yards with a touchdown and an interception on fourth-and-two from the Jets' four-yard line midway through the fourth quarter.

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE DEFENSE 

The Giants were able to bring the pressure early on Ryan Fitzpatrick. Defensive end Robert Ayers Jr. led a big day for the Giants' pass rush and notched two sacks. Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins also had one as the defense recorded nine quarterback hits on the day. In his fourth game back, defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul had six tackles (five solo and two for loss) and recovered a fumble that was forced by linebacker Jasper Brinkley. However, the Giants allowed a 10-play, 71-yard scoring drive late in the fourth quarter that resulted in a nine-yard touchdown pass from Fitzpatrick to Brandon Marshall to tie the game with 27 seconds left on the clock.

WHAT WE LEARNED ABOUT THE SPECIAL TEAMS 

Dwayne Harris sparked the Giants with an 80-yard punt return for a touchdown early in the second quarter. It was Harris' fourth return touchdown of his career. Earlier in the season, Harris, a former Cowboys, took a kickoff 100 yards to the house against Dallas in Week 7. Brad Wing, who entered Week 13 tied for fifth in punts inside the 20-yard line, added four more on Sunday to bring his season total to 26. Brown, who had extended his franchise record with 29 consecutive made field goals, missed a 48-yard attempt wide left with a chance to tie the game in overtime.
