Win Streak Ends For Lions In New Jersey

There aren't enough spots for everyone, but only two games remain.

It was a rare win in Denver for Brady, who improved to 3-7 lifetime in the Mile High City.

Minnesota faces an uphill battle to grab a wild-card berth.

Mason Crosby nailed a 32-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Green Bay Packers past the Chicago Bears, 30-27, at Soldier Field.

That was in the Tom Coughlin era.

Detroit (9-5) was finally brought back to reality after a sobering 17-6 loss to the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. First, Taylor pressured Gary Danielson into a quick throw which led to an interception and a field goal.

The NFC playoff picture remains crowded. Detroit might have had more in the second quarter, but misfortune struck. Beckham finished with 6 catches for 64 yards receiving and 1 touchdown.

The best way to aid an injured quarterback is a solid running game and the Lions couldn't establish one.

Manning was on target during a first half in which he became the seventh National Football League quarterback ever to reach 4,000 career completions. Philly is 5-9 after starting 3-0. "He's had maybe some of the best tutelage that one can have watching his older brother play, and then obviously both of them watching their dad play". From there, tailback Zach Zenner fumbled the football into the end zone after a seven-yard run, and the Giants recovered for a touchback. The loss eliminated the Bengals from playoff contention.

The Eagles nearly snatched victory at the end.

Beckham Drop

Detroit had just 56 yards on 19 carries and was especially bad running the ball on first down, setting up far too many second and long situations.

That includes Thursday's game in Philadelphia. This situation will be worth monitoring as the Lions playoff hopes are looming.

Embattled quarterback Tyrod Taylor was 17 of 24 passing for 174 yards for the Bills (7-7). The Giants and 'Boys beat the two hottest teams - the Lions and Bucs each had a five-game winning streak snapped.

In the first quarter, Eli Manning threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard.

The Giants (10-4) stayed in contention to win the NFC East.

A lot of change took place inside the NFC North on Sunday.

Caldwell suggested that's simply the nature of playing road games in the NFL.

Last season, the Giants needed to be out of sight to have any sort of comfort about a fourth quarter lead- if it was under a 14 point lead, the odds were that the Giants would cough it up.

Vereen's status was iffy for the game on Sunday being designated as questionable but he will once again suit up after another injury.
