Amer­i­can Foot­ball Con­fer­ence EAST W L T PCT PF PA HOME AWAY AFC NFC DIV Gi­ants 22, Bears 16 Eli Man­ning threw a go-ahead 15-yard touch­down pass to rookie Ster­ling Shep­ard in the third quar­ter as the New York Gi­ants ral­lied for their fifth straight win with a 22-16 de­ci­sion over the Chicago Bears on a windy Sun­day. Man­ning (21 of 36 for 227) also threw a third-quar­ter touch­down to Will Tye, Rashad Jen­nings scored on a 2-yard run and Rob­bie Gould kicked a 46-yard field goal on a day he missed two ex­tra points in a gusty MetLife Sta­dium. The win­ning streak is New York’s long­est in the reg­u­lar sea­son since 2010, while the Bears’ starts matches their worst since 2002. Chicago N.Y.

NYG Bills 16, Ben­gals 12 LeSean McCoy ran 7 yards for a touch­down be­fore suf­fer­ing a thumb in­jury, and the Buf­falo Bills got just enough out of their de­pleted of­fense, beat­ing the Cincin­nati Ben­gals 16-12 on Sun­day. The Bills (5-5) had lost three straight head­ing into their bye week. Their ragged win on Sun­day preserved their hopes of a long-awaited play­off spot. Play­ing their first game in nearly a month at Paul Brown Sta­dium, the Ben­gals (3-6-1) couldn’t move the ball con­sis­tently or make an ex­tra point. They also lost re­ceiver A.J. Green to an in­jured right ham­string on the first pass of the game; he was taken off on a cart. The Bills lost two of their top of­fen­sive play­ers in the first half. Re­ceiver Robert Woods suf­fered a knee in­jury as he was tack­led af­ter a catch. McCoy hurt his left thumb late in the half. Buf­falo 7 Cincin­nati 6 First Quar­ter Buf—McCoy 7 run (Car­pen­ter kick), 8:52. Cin—Dal­ton 2 run (kick failed), 2:34. Sec­ond Quar­ter Buf—FG Car­pen­ter 26, 9:03. Cin—Boyd 1 pass from Dal­ton (kick failed), 3:10. Third Quar­ter Buf—FG Car­pen­ter 54, 10:25. Fourth Quar­ter Buf—FG Car­pen­ter 20, 12:05. A—61,356. 3 6

CIN Cow­boys 27, Ravens 17 Dak Prescott threw three touch­down passes, two to Dez Bryant, in the first game with Tony Romo as his backup, and the Dal­las Cow­boys set a fran­chise sea­son record with their ninth straight win, beat­ing the Bal­ti­more Ravens 27-17 on Sun­day. Romo, who broke a bone in his back in a pre­sea­son game, was ac­tive for the first time since Thanks­giv­ing last year, and was the Dal­las backup for the first time in 10 years. NFL rush­ing leader Ezekiel El­liott broke the Dal­las club rookie rush­ing record of 1,007 yards set by Tony Dorsett in 1977. El­liott had 97 yards to give him 1,102 this sea­son. Bal­ti­more Dal­las First Quar­ter Bal—West 18 run (Tucker kick), 5:28. Sec­ond Quar­ter Dal—Beasley 3 pass from Prescott (Bai­ley kick), 5:55. Bal—FG Tucker 46, 1:37. Dal—FG Bai­ley 30, :04. Third Quar­ter Dal—Bryant 4 pass from Prescott (Bai­ley kick), 7:31. Fourth Quar­ter Dal—Bryant 13 pass from Prescott (Bai­ley kick), 11:30. Bal—S.Smith 5 pass from Flacco (Tucker kick), 8:16.
