The New York Giants had a less-than-stellar day on offense, but it was just enough in a 16-13 win as Philadelphia's long field goal attempt hit the upright with no time left. The ho-hum game featured 12 punts and only one pass play longer than 20 yards as the visiting Giants all but secured a wild-card berth. In other action:
- Tampa Bay had its four-game winning streak snapped, as backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels threw three scoring passes for Houston in a 28-14 victory. Earnest Graham had two scores for the Bucs who played without their starting QB Jeff Garcia.
- Fred Taylor had 132 yards rushing and Jacksonville's defense was stingy in a 37-6 thrashing of slumping Carolina.
