- Philadelphia 45 New York 38: New York fell behind 14-0 in the blink of an eye, battled back to take a one-point lead, but ultimately succumbed to the Eagles on Sunday night.
In the end, the Giants really did themselves in. They allowed a fumble return for a touchdown, a punt return for a touchdown, blew tons of coverages and dropped a lot of catchable balls. Philadelphia took advantage of those mistakes and put the game away with a 91-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter.
A win would have put the Giants in first place, but the loss is not as crushing as it could have been. Thanks to a Dallas loss, the Giants are still only one game out of a playoff spot, though with their current secondary, any playoff appearance would be brief.
- Jets 26 Tampa Bay 3: It was a dominating performance by the defense with the Jets not allowing Tampa a first down in the first half and only six in the game. Tampa only managed 124 net yards and surrendered three sacks and three interceptions. Kellen Clemens was mediocre, but he avoided making any mistakes and Thomas Jones added 99 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
- Atlanta 130 Nets 107: They didn’t play defense or cover the boards and the results were predictable. The Hawks shot 53% from the field and held a 51-38 rebounding advantage as they cruised to an easy win.
