THE NEW YORK Giants continued their roster purge after missing the playoffs, cutting leading rusher Ahmad Bradshaw and defensive tackle Chris Canty. The salary cap-saving moves on Wednesday came 1 day after New York let starting weakside linebacker Michael Boley go after four seasons. The Giants also waived defensive tackle Martin Parker, who spent this past season on injured reserve with a back injury. Bradshaw, Canty and Boley were all veterans who contributed to the Giants' Super Bowl win over the Patriots a year ago, but they all had big contracts and battled injuries.

FORMER EAGLES cornerback Asante Samuel likes to flap his gums. So it was a bit of a surprise when he declined to do a conference call with the Philly media Monday. Each week before games, Philly-area reporters ask to chat with a player from the upcoming opponent. This week, that's the Falcons, the team Samuel was traded to in April. For some reason, he didn't want to talk. Hey, it's not like Samuel hasn't mentioned the Eagles before. Just last week, he took a shot at Andy Reid on Twitter after the Eagles fired defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.

Bryce Brown giveth, and Bryce Brown taketh away. Just when it appeared that the explosive rookie would carry his ecstatic owners to the promised land, Brown put up a stinker of epic proportions. With just 12 combined yards on 14 touches, the Eagles' tailback couldn't blame an injury, and he didn't even lose a fumble. He simply got bottled up by the Buccaneers defense and, with that, doomed countless fantasy teams to an early exit. Then again, if you teamed him with Marshawn Lynch - who needed just 11 touches to generate 128 yards and a TD hat trick - you probably survived.

ST. LOUIS - Judging from the looks of things in St. Louis, each member of the NFC East is benefiting from having the Rams on its schedule. The New York Giants yeterday joined the Eagles in administering beat-downs to the Rams, picking up their 12th consecutive victory away from home, 41-13. The good news for Washington and Dallas is that each can look forward to a gimme W over the Rams next month - the Redskins at home on Oct. 12 and the Cowboys at St. Louis on Oct. 19. The Giants' defense spent the entire afternoon in the Rams' backfield, sacking Marc Bulger six times while limiting St. Louis to a fluke touchdown.

Oft-injured Derrick Ward re-signed with the New York Giants, reuniting with a group of halfbacks who did an outstanding job of replacing Tiki Barber and helping the team win a Super Bowl championship. Terms were not immediately available for Ward, who rushed for 602 yards and three touchdowns before his season was ended by a fractured left leg in December. An unrestricted free agent, Ward tested the market but decided to stay with the Giants. "The Giants gave me my start," said Ward, who shared the halfback spot last season with Brandon Jacobs, Ahmad Bradshaw and Reuben Droughns.

Finally, the Detroit Lions are winners. With rookie Matthew Stafford leading the way, Detroit ended a 19-game losing streak with a 19-14 victory over visiting Washington yesterday. The Lions (1-2) had not won since Dec. 23, 2007, and their skid matched the second longest in NFL history. "We've still got a long way to go, but we've got a quarterback, and that's a big piece of the puzzle," Lions vice chairman Bill Ford said. Stafford (21-for-36, 241 yards) threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Bryant Johnson in the first quarter and Detroit added a fourth-quarter score after a pass interference penalty.

Giants 17, Bears 3 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - New York knocked out Jay Cutler with a nine-sack first half and limited Chicago to 110 total yards in a 17-3 victory that left the NFL with only one undefeated team, the Kansas City Chiefs (3-0). Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown against a defense that had allowed 119 yards on the ground in its first three games, and Lawrence Tynes kicked a 22-yard field goal as the Giants (2-2) snapped a two-game losing streak and beat the Bears (3-1)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning wasn't searching for answers earlier this week when he said the New York Giants were looking for an identity after a season-opening loss. The 2008 Super Bowl MVP knows exactly who the Giants are when they have the ball. So do the St. Louis Rams, who will face them tonight at MetLife Stadium in the first coaching matchup of Tom Coughlin and former pupil Steve Spagnuolo. The Giants are a run-first offense. The passing game is set up by the rushing of Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs and the blocking of a hard-nosed offensive line.

THE PLAY: Giants receiver Ramses Barden is called for offensive pass interference after grabbing Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha - who had inside position - on the right shoulder, then the face mask, followed by the left shoulder, the top of the helmet and the throat. THE SETUP: The Eagles had just taken a 19-17 lead on Alex Henery's 26-yard field goal. On the ensuing kickoff, David Wilson, as he had done all day, found gaping lanes in the Eagles' special-teams coverage and ran the ball back to the Giants' 35. After a 9-yard completion to Victor Cruz on third down, the Eagles' Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was whistled for pass interference, giving the Giants first-and-10 at the Eagles' 35. Three Eli Manning incompletions and an Asomugha interference call put the Giants on the Eagles' 27. A 1-yard run by Ahmad Bradshaw gave Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes a legitimate shot at a 43-yard field goal.

INDIANAPOLIS - Mario Manningham is no longer the New York Giants' forgotten receiver. Manningham emerged from the shadow of Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz with a catch that will rival David Tyree's Super Bowl helmet grab 4 years ago, helping the Giants knock off the New England Patriots, 21-17, in the NFL championship game last night. Manningham's catch wasn't as improbable as Tyree's grab that led the Giants to a 17-14 win over New England in 2008. It was just as clutch and just as timely, and Tyree was there to see it. Running a go pattern up the left sideline on a first-and-10 from the Giants' 12 and down 17-15, Manningham made a 38-yard, over-the-shoulder catch between two defenders and right in front of Patriots coach Bill Belichick to help set up Ahmad Bradshaw's game-winning, 6-yard run with 57 seconds to go. Belichick didn't hesitate to challenge the catch, also contested by defenders Sterling Moore and Patrick Chung.

INDIANAPOLIS - For much of the first half, the Eagles' defense looked as if it was determined to revitalize the career of the Colts' struggling running back, Trent Richardson, and his sidekick, ex-Giant Ahmad Bradshaw. Since the Colts acquired Richardson early last season from the Cleveland Browns for a first-round draft pick, he has not come anywhere close to living up to expectations. He averaged only 2.9 yards per carry in 14 games last season, and had only 20 yards on six carries in the Colts' season-opening loss to the Denver Broncos.

THE COLTS' PLAN to bring Ahmad Bradshaw along slowly went out the barn door when second-year back Vick Ballard tore up his right knee in practice on Thursday. Colts coach Chuck Pagano called it "a freak accident" during a non-contact drill and said Ballard will have season-ending surgery. While we all wish Ballard well, there is a very real fantasy development here, and anyone who stashed Bradshaw on their roster could benefit greatly. "I'm ready. I'm set to go," Bradshaw said yesterday.

Wondering whether to start Matt Ryan and C.J. Spiller or to bench Terrelle Pryor and Santonio Holmes? Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 1 of the 2013 season.   Watch 'em roll Andrew Luck, QB, Colts vs. Raiders. We'll soon find out just how putrid the Raiders are. Luck and his wideouts are coming off a strong preseason and should have their way with Oakland's sieve-like secondary. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers vs. Packers. You can bet the Green Bay brain trust has been squarely focused this offseason on how to shut down Colin Kaepernick in the opener, but they'd better not take their eyes off Gore.

THE NEW ENGLAND Patriots yesterday announced the signing of the former Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, 6 weeks after he was cut by the New York Jets and just in time for the start of the 3-day Patriots minicamp that runs through tomorrow. Tebow practiced with veteran New England starter Tom Brady and backup Ryan Mallett. The newest Patriot wore No. 5, not his familiar 15 - which belongs to Mallett - on his shorts and helmet. The QBs wore red jerseys without numbers. "First and foremost, I just want to thank the Patriots for giving me an opportunity.

Recent history: Eagles eked out a 19-17 victory over the Giants on Sept. 30; the teams split last season's series, but the Eagles swept the 2009 and 2008 series against the G-Men. OFFENSE Eagles: 356.5 yards per game (12th) Giants: 352.7 yards per game (14th) Quarterback Eagles: Michael Vick hasn't played in almost 7 weeks and almost certainly is rusty, both physically and mentally. He had 14 turnovers in nine starts before being sidelined with a concussion, and faces a defense that is 2nd in the league in takeaways.

BALTIMORE - The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants picked a terrible time to play their worst football of the season, and now they're on the brink of missing the playoffs. A 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday left New York in a desperate position heading into the final week of the season. "The next game, if it's our last, whatever happens, we just want to leave with pride," running back Ahmad Bradshaw said. New York will need a win over the Eagles next Sunday and help from other teams to squeeze into the postseason.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - So much for that tired arm for Eli Manning, and that offensive slump for the New York Giants. They got it fixed in their bye week, then routed the Green Bay Packers, 38-10, Sunday night. The Packers certainly can attest to New York's turnaround following a week off. The showcase game was decided early as the Giants outscored the Packers, 31-10, in the opening half and cruised. Manning reached 200 career TD passes by throwing for three scores as New York (7-4)
