OK, everybody can exhale now. This one was hardly easy, and it was in doubt right until the final minute, but the New York Giants defeated the Buffalo Bills Sunday, 27-24. Combined with Washington's 20-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, that means the 4-2 Giants head into the bye week -- despite all their obvious warts -- leading the NFC East.

Thank the toughness of Ahmad Bradshaw (104 yards, 26 carries, three touchdowns). Thank the big second-half play of Corey Webster, coming up with a pair of interceptions on underthrown balls by Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Thank the long arms of Jason Pierre-Paul, who batted down a desperation fourth-down pass by Fitzpatrick to secure the victory. Thank Eli Manning, who went 21-of-32 and did not turn the ball over against the opportunistic Bills. Thank Buffalo's Drayton Florence, who committed three penalties and had a miserable day trying to cover Hakeem Nicks and trying to tackle anybody.

Get used to this kind of stuff, gang. If you aren't used to it already. These are the Giants. Nothing will ever be easy.
