Giants 28, Lions 20: It wasn't pretty, but the Giants defeated the Lions ahead of their matchup next week against the Cowboys. The Giants defense forced three turnovers and knocked yet another quarterback out of a game — this time when Shaun Hill broke his arm towards the end of the first half. Despite the turnovers and the Lions resorting to their 3rd string QB (Matthew Stafford was out with injury, but was the emergency quarterback for the game), the Giants weren't able to put the Lions away until an interception in the final seconds of the game. The Lions aided the Giants with 11 penalties for 91 yards, including penalties that kept two Giants-TD drives alive. Ahmad Bradshaw had 133 rushing yards, Brandon Jacobs had two touchdowns, and Eli Manning added two touchdowns of his own in the win. It's safe to say that New York won't be looking past their next opponent as they travel to Dallas ahead of a bye week.

Jets 24, Broncos 20: A late touchdown by LaDainian Tomlinson gave the Jets a comeback win over Denver and their fifth straight win. Tomlinson's TD, his second of the game, came after a 46-yard pass interference penalty on 4th down that put the ball on the Broncos two yard line. Mark Sanchez threw his first two interceptions of the season against a Broncos defense that was missing three members of its secondary. The thin air helped Nick Folk set a Jets record with a 56-yard field goal in the 3rd quarter. Not to be outdone, Denver's Matt Prater had a 59-yard field goal, a career high, but 4-yards short of Jason Elam's team record.
