Ralph Wilson Stadium, Orchard Park, NY
New York Giants 24 (2-2) @ Buffalo Bills 10 (2-2)
By Robby Sabo
Not many were giving the New York Giants a chance in Buffalo this weekend. The Bills are now led by the confidence of Rex Ryan and their defense seemed to be on top of the world.
Not anymore, as Eli Manning and company made sure of that with their semi-shocking 24-10 victory on Sunday.

Manning finished 20-of-35 for 212 yards and three touchdowns on the day. Perhaps no single play better told the story than this Rashad Jennings 51-yard TD reception early on in the fourth-quarter:
That punishing play made the score 24-10 (after a 2-pt conversion). The Giants never looked back.
Odell Beckham Jr. – while didn’t amaze in the box score (5-receptions, 38-yards) – picked up some of the buzz on a non-catch that looked eerily similar to one last season.
The main story coming from Tom Couglin’s squad had to be the defense. The Giants limited Buffalo to a combined 77 yards and two first downs on its first nine possessions. The Bills also came away with no points on two drives into the red zone.
The victory shoots the Giants right back into NL East division contention with a 2-2 record while the Bills fall to 2-2.
