NYG 21 PIT 14
The Pittsburgh Steelers, stretched thin by injuries and their own mistakes, repeatedly kept the New York Giants out of their end zone. A game the Steelers were controlling turned dramatically when they couldn’t stay out of that end zone themselves.
Eli Manning threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Boss with 3:11 remaining for the Giants’ only touchdown after they tied it several minutes before on a bizarre safety. The defending champs are now 6-1 and atop the NFC East.
WASH 25 DET 17
Santana Moss scored twice, including a punt return for 80 yards early in the fourth quarter, scoring what proved to be Washington’s game winning touchdown in a 25-17 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.
The Redskins are now at 6-2 for the first time since 2000 with the win.
