EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Eli Manning and Tom Brady were
solid in their final tuneups for the regular season.
And Rhett Bomar may have nailed down the job as the New York
Giants' backup quarterback, throwing a 60-yard scoring pass to Duke
Calhoun with 1:49 to play as the Giants rallied for a 20-17 victory
over the New England Patriots on Thursday night.
The winning score came just minutes after Darnell Jenkins put
the Patriots ahead 17-12 by catching a short pass from Brian Hoyer
and turning it into a 66-yard scoring play with one move and a
burst of speed.
The good news for both teams was they came out the preseason
finale relatively healthy.
New England (2-2) will host Terrell Owens, Chad Ochocinco and
the Cincinnati Bengals on Sept. 12. The Giants (2-2) will open at
home against Carolina in their new $1.6 billion stadium.
