New Jersey ( Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two costly interceptions, and Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes hit a 23 yard FG with 1:35 left to hand the Bills a 27-24 loss on Sunday.

The setback pushed the Bills to 4-and-2 heading into the Bye week. They will play the Washington Redskins on October 30th in Toronto.

With the game tied at 24, the Bills had the ball on the Giants 27 yard line with 4:10 to play when Ryan Fitzpatrick was intercepted by by Corey Webster for a second time on the day. Fitzpatrick was looking for Stevie Johnson, but the pass was under thrown and intercepted on the Giants 4 yard line.

The Giants turned the interception into the eventual game winning points. Eli Manning marched New York 76 yards on 9 plays to set up the Tynes go ahead FG.

The Bills offense would get the ball back with 1:32 to play, but couldn't get anything going. Jason Pierre-Paul knocked down a Fitzpatrick pass at the line on 4th and 5 to finish off the game.

The Bills offense would respond on the next play from scrimmage. Fred Jackson broke off an amazing 80-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 7. The 80 yard scamper was the longest TD run for the Bills in 21 years.

Naaman Roosevelt would then give the Bills their first lead of the game.
Roosevelt hauled in a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass and took it 60-yards for his first career TD to put Buffalo up 14-7.

The Giants cut the Bills lead to 4 at 9:56 of the second quarter when Lawrence Tynes kicked a 26 yard FG. New York would then take the lead when Bradshaw scored his second TD of the game. His 1-yard touchdown put the Giants ahead 17-14.

The Bills would tie the game at 17 just before half-time on a Rian Lindell 49 yard FG. It was Lindell's 200th career FG.

Bradshaw would score his third touchdown of the game to open the scoring in third quarter. The running back once again found the endzone on a 1-yard touchdown run to give the Giants a 24-17 lead.
