November 08, 2010

Cleveland 34, New England 14

Cleveland, OH (Sports Network) - Colt McCoy threw for 174 yards on 14-of-19 passing and also turned in a rushing score as Cleveland posted an unexpected rout over New England, 34-14, at Browns Stadium. Peyton Hillis ran for a career-best 184 yards and two scores on 29 carries for the Browns (3-5), who have won two in a row sandwiched around a bye week, and helped head coach Eric Mangini gain a measure of revenge against the team which employed him as a defensive coach from 2000-05. Chansi Stuckey added an 11-yard TD rush and Phil Dawson kicked two field goals for Cleveland, which snapped a four- game losing streak to New England stretching back to November 12, 2000. Tom Brady completed 19-of-36 passes for 224 yards and a pair of touchdowns to Aaron Hernandez for the Patriots (6-2), who hadn't tasted defeat since a Week 2 loss on the road against the New York Jets. Hernandez wound up with 48 yards on five receptions and Danny Woodhead was limited to 54 yards on nine carries for New England, which travels to Pittsburgh next Sunday night.

NY Giants 41, Seattle 7

Seattle, WA (Sports Network) - Eli Manning threw three touchdowns and Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for two scores, as the New York Giants embarrassed the Seattle Seahawks, 41-7, at Qwest Field. The Giants (6-2), fresh off a bye week, thrashed the Seahawks (4-4) for 487 yards while only allowing 162 en route to their fifth straight win and first in Seattle since 1981. Manning ended with 290 yards on 21-of-32 efficiency, throwing TDs to Steve Smith, Kevin Boss and Hakeem Nicks, who caught six balls for 128 yards in the lopsided victory. Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw rushed for 78 and 57 yards, respectively. Charlie Whitehurst, in his first career start in place of an injured Matt Hasselbeck, completed 12-of-23 passes for 113 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for Seattle, which was coming off a 33-3 drubbing at the hands of the Oakland Raiders.

Oakland 23, Kansas City 20 (OT)

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Sebastian Janikowski hit a 33-yard field goal less than three minutes into overtime as the Oakland Raiders took a 23-20 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in an AFC West battle. Kansas City started with the ball in the extra session but were held to a three-and-out. On the first play after getting the ball back, Jason Campbell hit Jacoby Ford on a 47-yard diving catch and, after a run to get the ball lined up, Janikowski calmly split the uprights for the win. Campbell went 19-for-33 with 229 yards, one touchdown and one interception while Ford finished the game with six catches for 148 yards and returned the opening kickoff of the second half 94 yards for a score for the Raiders (5-4), who go into their bye week with three straight wins, the first three-game winning streak for the club since 2002. Darren McFadden had 17 carries for 89 yards and added four catches for 25 yards for Oakland, which has now matched its largest win total in a season since winning 11 games in 2002. Oakland had won five games three times in the seven seasons since 2002. Matt Cassel was 20-for-35 with 216 yards, two scores and an interception while Dwayne Bowe and Verran Tucker each caught a score for the Chiefs (5-3), who were coming off an overtime win of Buffalo and had a two-game winning streak snapped. Kansas City came into the game having won seven straight games in Oakland.

Philadelphia 26, Indianapolis 24

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Michael Vick ran for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter and Asante Samuel sealed the victory with an interception in the final seconds, as the Philadelphia Eagles held off the Indianapolis Colts, 26-24, at Lincoln Financial Field. Vick returned to the lineup after missing three games with a rib injury and completed 17-of-29 passes for 218 yards and a touchdown for the Eagles (5-3), who are now a perfect 12-0 under head coach Andy Reid following the bye week. Vick also carried the ball 10 times for 74 yards. DeSean Jackson caught seven passes for 109 yards and scored for Philadelphia, which snapped a streak of four straight losses to the Colts dating back to a 20-10 win at Indianapolis in 1993. It was also the Eagles' first victory against the Colts in Philly since October 14, 1984. LeSean McCoy carried the ball 16 times for 95 yards. Peyton Manning, making his 200th career start, connected on 31-of-52 passes for 294 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions for the Colts (5-3), who saw a three-game winning streak come to an end.
