    In a showdown of 1-5 teams, the Buffalo Bills managed to get their second win in a row, beating the NY Giants 28-24 on the solid play of QB Robert You and 3 TD's from CJ Spiller.

    The Bills got the ball first and would strike quickly, Spiller getting open deep on a wheel route and You finding his man with a perfect throw for the 58 yard score. The G-Men would respond however, Eli Manning driving down the field and hitting FB Greg Jones from 10 yards against an all out blitz to tie the game at 7-7 heading into the second quarter.

    The Giants took the lead on a 20 yard TD pass to rookie TE Jalen Driskell with just 61 seconds left in the half, but after having struggled until then, You the Buffalo offense would get it going, needing only 52 seconds to again hit Spiller, this time from 1 yard out, tying the game at 14-14 going into halftime.

    The only score of the third quarter came from the wildcat, the first time that formation has ever worked according to coach SRC, Spiller taking the direct snap and going 56 yards for his third TD of the game and the 21-14 lead.

    New York would take back the lead by scoring the first 10 points of the final quarter, first on a 15 yard catch by Steve Smith and then on an incredible 57 yard field goal by David Akers that honestly had enough distance to have made it from beyond 60. Once again however, the Bills would turn to their two minute offense to get the job done, Lee Evans getting open for the 34 yard TD with 42 seconds left to play. From there, the Buffalo defense did enough to hold on for the win, the contest between two lowly ranked teams a surprisingly good one.

    You and Spiller lead the way for the Bills, You going 15/28 for 238 yards with 3 TD's and 1 interception, Spiller totalling 163 yards from scrimmage with 3 TD's, his best game of the season. For the Giants, Manning was 12/23 for 164 yards, 3 TD's and 2 interceptions.
