NEW ORLEANS - Drew Brees threw four touchdown passes as the New Orleans Saints torched the collapsing New York Giants, 49-24, on Monday night. Brees completed 24 of 38 attempts for 363 yards, and the Saints raised their record to 8-3 and took over first place in the NFC South. The Giants (6-5) lost their third straight and took a beating on both the scoreboard and on the field. Defensive end Osi Umenyiora went out with a sprained ankle and receiver Hakeem Nicks was rocked by a vicious collision with Saints rookie safety Isa Abdul-Quddus.

Vonta Leach was released Tuesday by the Baltimore Ravens, who failed to agree on a restructured contract with the all-pro fullback. Leach was an integral part of a running game that helped the Ravens become champions last season and was also a key figure in the locker room. Leach will visit the Miami Dolphins on Wednesday.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Eli Manning needed less than a minute to turn a bad afternoon into a sweet victory. Manning, playing at the scene of his 2008 Super Bowl triumph, threw two touchdown passes in a 58-second span late in the game and the New York Giants rallied to stun the Arizona Cardinals, 31-27, on Sunday. The scoring passes of 2 yards to Jake Ballard with 3 minutes, 37 seconds to go and 29 yards to Hakeem Nicks with 2:39 left came after the Cardinals (1-3) seemingly had taken control at 27-17 on Beanie Wells' third rushing touchdown of the game with 5:16 to go. Manning completed 7 of 8 for 126 yards on the decisive drives as the Giants (3-1)

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Super Bowl or midseason game, Eli Manning is the master of last-minute comebacks against the New England Patriots. Leading the New York Giants 80 yards in just over a minute, Manning hit Jake Ballard for a 1-yard touchdown with 15 seconds left for a 24-20 win on Sunday, repeating a come-from-behind victory similar to the 2008 title game between the teams. The Giants won that one, 17-14, on Manning's 13-yard scoring pass to Plaxico Burress with 35 seconds remaining.

The recession has been good for the NFL, according to commissioner Roger Goodell, who said it has helped build TV audiences for games. Speaking on an episode of CBS's 60 Minutes to be aired Sunday, Goodell said nearly 60 million people tuned in to watch Sunday's conference championships because of the lingering recession and high unemployment. "People want to feel part of a group, feel like they're connected, and right now during these difficult times, they can turn on free television and watch the greatest entertainment that's out there," Goodell said.

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.

SAN FRANCISCO - The Giants boasted a physical, intimidating defense with athletic linebackers and stout linemen capable of stifling the NFL's most productive offenses. San Francisco featured a high-powered passing attack led by an eventual Hall of Fame quarterback in his prime with receivers capable of turning short passes into big gains. When the San Francisco 49ers host the New York Giants in the NFC championship game Sunday for a shot at the Super Bowl, the matchup conjures memories from a previous era of this great rivalry - even if the roles are somewhat reversed.

SAN FRANCISCO - Statement game, you bet. Just what the San Francisco 49ers wanted to show they're a legitimate contender. Justin Smith batted down Eli Manning's pass in the closing seconds of the New York quarterback's latest comeback try, and San Francisco stopped the Giants on fourth down for a 27-20 victory in Sunday's NFC showdown. With his team trailing, Manning completed a pair of long fourth-down passes and got the Giants to the red zone with 1:53 to go. Unlike last week's rally by New York (6-3)

CINCINNATI Bengals receiver A.J. Green was on the New York Giants' radar long before opening his mouth. The NFL's co-leader in touchdown receptions, Green created some controversy for Sunday's game in Cincinnati on Thursday in a radio interview with WFAN in New York City, saying there are areas to exploit in the Giants' defense. "I feel like they've got a lot of holes in their defense," Green said. There is some truth to Green's comment. New York has given up 15 pass plays of 30 yards or more and 38 passes of 20 or more.

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.

Wondering whether to start Peyton Manning and Andre Johnson, or to bench Chad Henne and Joseph Randle? Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 10 of the 2013 season. Watch 'em roll Nick Foles, QB, Eagles at Packers. I realize you would have appreciated this recommendation a lot more last week. But with Foles still available in roughly 60 percent of all leagues, it appears he has quite a few doubters out there. The Packers gave up 271 yards and two TDs, without an interception, to Josh McCown on Monday night.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - As Bill Davis sifted through the rubble of his team's 52-20 loss to Peyton Manning and the Broncos last week, nothing frustrated the beleaguered Eagles defensive coordinator more about his unit's pathetic effort than the fact that it failed to force a turnover for the second straight week. "We have to be a turnover team," he said. "Our turnovers are not high enough right now. We've got to work on that. "The defense has to increase its production for the team to succeed.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 5 of the 2013 season. Watch 'em roll Michael Vick, QB, Eagles at Giants. No defense has given up more passing TDs (10) or generated fewer sacks (four) than the Giants. That's a tasty combo for Vick, who should have a stellar rebound against his struggling division rivals. With little pressure to avoid and wide-open running and passing lanes, Vick could be this week's fantasy big winner. Rashad Jennings, RB, Raiders vs. Chargers.

WE'RE LOOKING at this all wrong, through a pinhole and not a telescope. That "Monday Night Football" game between the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders was a thing of beauty for the Eagles. Provided great hope, in fact. Yes, yes, the Eagles will get killed this Sunday. If Philip Rivers looked like Peyton Manning against their defense, imagine what Peyton Manning will look like against those guys. On second thought, don't. If Alex Smith could find Donnie Avery in the middle of the field any time he wanted to last Thursday, imagine how ridiculous it's going to be with Wes Welker going through there.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 2 of the 2013 season.   Watch 'em roll Carson Palmer, QB, Cardinals vs. Lions. He's far removed from his days as an elite passer, but Palmer still has enough to get the job done on occasion. He had a solid debut with his new trio of receivers, and he'll give the visiting Lions a much tougher test than Christian Ponder did in the opener. Palmer doesn't have much choice, since his team can't run the ball. DeAngelo Williams, RB, Panthers at Bills.

ATLANTA - The Falcons sent a message to all the skeptics with a resounding victory Sunday over the defending Super Bowl champions. Matt Ryan threw three touchdowns passes as the defense handed the New York Giants their first regular-season shutout since 1996 in Atlanta's 34-0 win. Julio Jones caught a couple of scoring throws from Ryan, who broke his own franchise records for completions and passing yards in a season. The Penn Charter grad finished 23 of 28 for 270 yards. The Giants, meanwhile, were 0 for 3 on fourth down and missed a short field goal.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Rookie David Wilson's brilliant game might be the spark that gets the New York Giants back to the playoffs. Wilson returned a kickoff 97 yards for one touchdown, ran for two more scores, and piled up a team-record 327 all-purpose yards in the Giants' 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday. Eli Manning was no slouch either, throwing four TD passes as the Giants scored the most points since putting up 55 against Green Bay in 1986. New York also ended a three-game losing streak against the Saints, who lost their third straight.
