Vikings coach Childress addresses spat with Favre

NFL Notes

Bears' Ogunleye done for season

Browns owner Lerner says Holmgren will be team president

December 22, 2009|By From Sun news services

Playing for their playoff lives, Eli Manning and the New York Giants were efficient, focused and dominant.

Playing for their new general manager, the Washington Redskins (4-10) did a good job of convincing the boss that maybe everyone ought to be fired.

The Giants kept themselves in the postseason hunt Monday night with one of the most lopsided victories in the long, storied series against their NFC East rival. New York scored on six of its first seven possessions and controlled every facet of the game in a 45-12 win that wasn't as close as even that margin of victory would indicate.

Manning completed 19 of 26 passes for 268 yards and three touchdowns, and Ahmad Bradshaw ran for two scores for the Giants (8-6), who are one game behind the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers in the battle for wild-card spots with two weeks remaining in the regular season. A loss would have left New York with only the faintest of playoff hopes.

BEARS: Defensive end Adewale Ogunleye will miss the rest of the season because of a fracture in his lower left leg. Coach Lovie Smith said Ogunleye won't need surgery. But with an expiring contract, his future with the team is in question.

BROWNS: Owner Randy Lerner said he reached a deal with Mike Holmgren for the latter to become president. ... Former general manager George Kokinis filed for arbitration against the team for firing him. Kokinis was dismissed by the Browns on Nov. 2. He is seeking more than $4 million in compensation and damages. N.Y.G. 7 17 14 7-45 Washington 0 0 12 0-12 First quarter
