Jennings eluded three would-be tacklers to score on a 51-yard catch-and-run midway through the fourth quarter to secure a 24-10 win over the unraveling and undisciplined Buffalo Bills on Sunday. And if the outcome was ever in doubt, cornerback Prince Amukamara settled it on Buffalo's next possession by stripping the ball out of the hands of receiver Robert Woods.
"We were challenged after the first two games where we had leads going into the fourth quarter and lost them both," quarterback Eli Manning said. "So that was a huge play by Rashad. A great effort and we need it. The team needed it."
"As far as me as a player, I've got to make that play," Bradham said, referring to the missed tackle on Jennings.
Trouble was, it wasn't just Bradham in a game the Bills lacked finish on offense and undone by a lack of discipline.
Buffalo's offense combined for just 77 yards and two first downs on its first nine possessions. Once it finally began moving, it came away with no points on two consecutive drives into the red zone.
Another concern was penalties. The Bills were flagged 17 times for 135 yards, two weeks after they were penalized 14 times for 140 yards in a 40-32 loss to New England.
"Can we play a lot smarter? Absolutely," coach Rex Ryan said. "Say what you want, but I'll take a team that will fight."
"One after another, dumb penalties," Graham said. "It's terrible. We can't win games like that."
"You could really see the frustration starting to come over them," Jenkins said.
Manning went 20 of 35 for 212 yards and three touchdowns - including a 21-yarder to Dwight Harris and an 11-yarder to Rueben Randle - and an interception.
Kennard was in stride with Clay and reached up at the last moment to snag the pass as the tight end was prepared to haul it in.
NOTES: Manning's final pass was intercepted by Stephon Gilmore, ending the quarterback's interception streak at 142 attempts from the start of the season. ... Beckham finished with five catches for 38 yards, and upped his total to 1,612 yards, the most by an NFL player through 16 games. ... Giants K Josh Brown missed a 38-yard point-after attempt, which was backed up by a false-start penalty. Bills K Dan Carpenter missed a 30-yard field-goal attempt wide left.
