Eli Manning tossed 3 touchdown passes, the Giants held Buffalo’s top flight rushing attack to just 55 yards and Big Blue earned their first road victory of the season in Week 4.
New York’s well-balanced offense had the Bills defense on its heels for the majority of the contest with the Giants leading wire-to-wire.
Rex Ryan’s team committed a litany of errors including 17 penalties for a whopping 135 yards and handed the Giants two turnovers along the way.
Buffalo entered action as the NFL’s most penalized team, and did nothing to buck that trend on Sunday.
Ryan’s Bills lacked discipline throughout; often getting flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and late hits, while Tom Coughlin’s unit kept its composure despite making a few miscues of their own.
Manning threw his first interception of the season as cornerback Stephon Gilmore stepped in front of Rueben Randle at the goal line with 3:40 remaining in the game.
Big Blue’s offensive highlight came with 7:52 left in the fourth quarter when RB Rashad Jennings corralled a pass from Manning in the flat and escaped three tackles including a stiff arm along the sidelines before scampering for a 51-yard touchdown.
Opposing a formidable Bills defensive line that came into Week 4 leading the league in sacks, the Giants offensive line did an impressive job of protecting Manning in the pocket along just one sack.
The Giants played well in all three phases of the game, but surprisingly Odell Beckham Jr. had one of the quieter games of his short career by recording five receptions for 38 yards.
New York returns to MetLife Stadium next Sunday night for a matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.
