    New York Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes celebrates with punter Jeff Feagles after kicking the game-winning field goal against the Atlanta Falcons in overtime.

    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.
