  • Giants 30, Ravens 10: The Giants have a great rushing attack, and they don't let anyone forget it. On Sunday, they ran for 207 yards in a one-sided affair. Ahmad Bradshaw had nine carries for 96 yards and Brandon Jacobs had 11 for 73 and two touchdowns. Eli Manning was a mediocre 13-for-23 for 153 yards, but who cares? The ground game and the defense did the rest. Each week, the Giants face a test -- this week's was the Ravens' stingy rush defense -- and they come out passing with flying colors.
  • Mavericks 124, Knicks 114: A 19-2 run in the final 7:26 minutes. They went 0-for-14 from the 2:28 mark of regulation. Zach Randolph had 27 points and 18 rebounds. Every Knicks starter had at least 14 points, but it just wasn't enough. Defense is needed to from time to time.
