ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) As running back Rashad Jennings broke one tackle after another, the New York Giants began shedding their early season reputation for blowing fourth-quarter leads.
Jennings eluded three would-be tacklers to score on a 51-yard catch-and-run midway through the fourth quarter to secure a 24-10 win over the unraveling and undisciplined Buffalo Bills on Sunday. And if the outcome was ever in doubt, cornerback Prince Amukamara settled it on Buffalo's next possession by stripping the ball out of the hands of receiver Robert Woods.
"We were challenged after the first two games where we had leads going into the fourth quarter and lost them both," quarterback Eli Manning said. "So that was a huge play by Rashad. A great effort and we need it. The team needed it."
