It looked like it was when cornerback Prince Amukamara forced a fumble that he recovered, giving the Giants the ball back with 6:22 left and a 24-10 lead.

But the fourth quarter once again got a little interesting when Eli Manning threw his first interception of the season on the ensuing drive. Buffalo got the ball back, but then it really over when quarterback Tyrod Taylor was sacked by Nikita Whitlock on third down and threw and incompletion on fourth down with 1 second remaining in the game. The Giants took over on downs, and Manning knelt for the victory.

PLAYERS OF THE GAME

It was a complete team win, so we'll go with one from each phase of the game. On offense, it goes to running back Rashad Jennings, who made the play of the day with a 51-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown that put the Giants ahead by 14 points midway through the fourth quarter.

On defense, you can take your pick, but we'll go with linebacker Devon Kennard, who recorded his first career interception to help the Giants jump out to an early lead. On special teams, Brad Wing entered Week 3 as the NFL leader with eight punts inside the 20-yard line. He added four more on Sunday, including three at or inside the 10.

WHAT THE WIN MEANS FOR THE GIANTS

They feel like they're back in the race, as Manning expressed in his postgame press conference. After losing their first two games in heartbreaking fashion, the Giants closed out the last two weeks to pull even in the win-loss column. They're building momentum in a wide-open NFC East race.

The 49ers come to town next week as Big Blue looks to make it three in a row.

WHAT THE LOSS MEANS FOR THE BILLS

Also standing at 2-2 now, Buffalo will look to regroup after missing three starters on offense due to injuries. In the AFC East race, the Bills fell behind the Jets, who improved to 3-1 with a 27-14 victory over the Dolphins (1-3) in London, and the undefeated Patriots, who were on their bye week.
