EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants made Ray Handley's coaching debut a success by beating the Buffalo Bills, 23-17, last night in a rematch of Super Bowl XXV.
Lewis Tillman's 3-yard touchdown run ignited a 13-point second-half outburst as the Giants beat the Bills at Giants Stadium in August the same way they did at Tampa Stadium in January -- by controlling the ball. New York, which held the ball for more than 40 minutes in winning the Super Bowl, had it for 38 minutes in its exhibition opener.

CLEVELAND -- Starter Vinny Testaverde completed all four of his passes and backups Chris Chandler and Jeff Carlson each directed touchdown drives, as Tampa Bay beat Cleveland.
