Lawrence Tynes kicked a 36-yard field goal 3:54 into overtime to lead The Giants past the Atlanta Falcons 34-31 after the defense blew a two-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter.

     Eli Manning threw for a career-high 384 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Kevin Boss, to help the Giants (6-4) snap a four-game skid coming off their bye week.
    
It wasn't easy, though, as New York's top-ranked defense couldn't hold a 31-17 lead against Matt Ryan and the Falcons.
    
Ryan threw a 4-yard scoring pass to Eric Weems with 6:01 left in regulation, then found Tony Gonzalez for 11 yards with 28 seconds remaining to tie it.
    
Atlanta (5-5) has lost four of five after a 4-1 start.
