Recap


Corey Webster made two crucial interceptions and Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 104 yards and three short touchdowns to lead the New York Giants to a 27-24 win over the visiting Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Webster’s second interception ended a potential go-ahead drive by the Bills in the red zone with just over four minutes to play.

Eli Manning marched New York down the field for a 23-yard field goal by Lawrence Tynes to take the lead for good with 1:32 to play.

The Bills, who have three come-from-behind wins already this season, couldn’t move the ball for the tying field goal.

All three of Bradshaw’s touchdowns came from a yard out. His first gave the Giants a 7-0 lead, but Buffalo (4-2) responded with a pair of long touchdowns in the first half. 

Fred Jackson burst through the middle of the New York defense for an 80-yard touchdown run to tie the score.

On the Bills’ next possession, Ryan Fitzpatrick connected with Naaman Roosevelt, stepping in to the role of slot receiver due to a bevy of injuries, and he outraced the Giant defense for a 60-yard touchdown.

New York (4-2) trimmed the deficit to 14-10 on a short field goal by Tynes, and Bradshaw helped New York reclaim the lead with his second touchdown. Buffalo tied the game at 17 before intermission on a 49-yard field goal by Rian Lindell.

Bradshaw capped a long drive with his third 1-yard scoring run to give New York a 24-17 lead midway through the third quarter. But the Bills tied it when Fitzpatrick capped a long drive of his own with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Steve Johnson.

Jackson had 107 yards rushing at half, his fourth 100-yard game of the season. He finished with 121 yards on 16 carries.

Manning threw for 292 yards on 21-for-32 passing.
