Punter Jeff Feagles signed a 2-year contract with the NFL champion New York Giants yesterday, a little more than a week after becoming the oldest player to play in a Super Bowl. Feagles, who turns 42 next month, represented himself in negotiations with assistant general manager Kevin Abrams. Feagles declined to say how much money he would earn, but he made $1 million last year in the final year of a 5-year deal. Feagles spent 20 years in the NFL before making it to the Super Bowl this season.

The Los Angeles City Council voted yesterday to spend $25 million on improvements around the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in hopes of luring an NFL team back to the city. Under the plan, the city Community Redevelopment Agency would issue $25 million in bonds for street widening, site clearing and other work near the Coliseum, which would be paid for by expected tax revenue from the stadium. In coming years, the city estimates it could spend up to $121 million more for additional transit and other improvements, which would also be funded by stadium taxes.

Dallas Cowboys coach Bill Parcells challenged his struggling offense to "do something" to keep pace with the high-scoring Kansas City Chiefs. Then he gave them some gimmicks to help pull it off. Getting touchdowns on a flea flicker, an end-around inside the 10-yard line and a pass to a blocker who hadn't scored in 2 years, the Cowboys kept their playoff hopes alive with a 31-28 victory over Kansas City yesterday in a barn-burner befitting a...

The Kansas City Chiefs made a quick trip worth the trouble. With Hurricane Wilma scrambling the schedule, the Chiefs arrived fewer than 6 hours before kickoff for a rare Friday night game, then shook off any flight fatigue to beat host Miami, 30-20. Trent Green threw for 289 yards against Miami's injury-depleted secondary, and the Chiefs rolled up a season-high 462 yards while controlling the ball for nearly 42 minutes. Lawrence Tynes' three field goals included a 51- and 52-yarder, the two longest kicks of his career.

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)

Lawrence Tynes' collision with football history is forever frozen in Lambeau lore, an unshakable legacy secured by the overtime kick that sent the Giants from Green Bay's frigid tundra to Arizona's welcoming rays for Super Bowl XLII in 2008. His command of a block of concrete a football becomes in subzero weather left a different kind of mark on Tynes, one he discovered when he finally sat down inside the craziness of the victorious visitors' locker room. "My foot was black," Tynes recalled during a phone conversation Tuesday.

How do you spoil a $1.12 billion housewarming party? Just the way the Giants did last night. They intercepted three passes that led to touchdowns and had a breakout game by Mario Manningham. Then they drove 56 yards to set up Lawrence Tynes' 37-yard field goal with no time left for a 33-31 NFC East win over the Cowboys. Tynes sent home the largest crowd (105,121) in NFL regular season history muttering about what might've been, ruining the debut of their rival's $1.15 billion stadium.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - For a change, the New York Giants didn't have to rely solely on Eli Manning's arm. They are heading into the bye week with hope and with a running game. Ahmad Bradshaw ran for a season-high 104 yards and a career-best three touchdowns, and Lawrence Tynes kicked a go-ahead, 23-yard field goal with 1 minute, 32 seconds remaining to give the Giants a 27-24 victory over Buffalo on Sunday. The win sent the Giants (4-2) into their vacation in first place in the NFC East, but knowing they have games against New England, San Francisco, the Eagles, New Orleans, Green Bay, and the Jets in their final 10-game stretch.

Kansas City Chiefs kicker Lawrence Tynes was charged yesterday with breaking a bouncer's nose in a bar fight, a felony with a maximum penalty of 3 1/2 years in prison. Tynes, the NFL's first Scottish-born player, turned himself in yesterday morning and made his first appearance in Pierce County (Wis.) Circuit Court on one felony count of substantial battery and one count of misdemeanor battery. He was released on a $15,000 signature bond. He practiced yesterday. Practice broke up before word of the criminal charges got out. The alleged fight took place early Sunday morning at a bar in River Falls, Wis., where the Chiefs have their training camp.

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.

SAN FRANCISCO - Antrel Rolle intercepted two passes by Alex Smith, Prince Amukamara picked off another and the New York Giants shut down San Francisco in a 26-3 victory over the 49ers Sunday in a rematch of last season's NFC championship game. After outscoring the Bills and Jets by a combined 79-3 the last two weeks, the 49ers met their match again with Eli Manning and New York's top team. No overtime needed this time - and not much of Manning either. Manning threw for 193 yards and one TD, Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 116 yards and a score and New York rode a dominant defense and four field goals by Lawrence Tynes to hand 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh the most lopsided loss of his tenure.

SAN FRANCISCO - The New York Giants have their own Super Bowl formula: in overtime and on the road. And with Lawrence Tynes' foot. Eli Manning directed one short, final drive and Tynes kicked a game-winning, 31-yard field goal in overtime, sending the Giants to the Super Bowl with a 20-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game yesterday. In another tight one in this decades-old postseason rivalry, both defenses made key stops before New York capitalized on another costly mistake by San Francisco.

Stephen Gostkowski, Patriots: The difference between Gostkowski's league-best 148 points and the league's 11th-highest scoring kicker was 24 points ... or, about 1 1/2 points per week. Don't reach too high for Gostkowski. Jason Elam, Falcons: The former longtime Bronco went 6-for-7 on the road from 40-plus as a Falcon last year, proving there's more to Elam than mile-high elevation. Robbie Gould, Bears: Figures to get more opportunities if the Bears' offense improves behind Jay Cutler.

Sean Landeta still checks the weather forecast. It's a habit he picked up in 22 years as a punter in the NFL, including 8 1/2 at Giants Stadium. What's the projected temperature, Landeta wants to know. And, more important, from where and how strongly will the winds be blowing? "To a punter and a kicker, your biggest opponent is the weather," Landeta said last week from his girlfriend's home in Bucks County. "It's not the other team you're playing. It's not the ball. It's not the field.

They are two players - one a Pro Bowl cornerback, the other a little-known linebacker who plays on special teams - who could have changed the course of NFL history last season had a split-second move gone in favor of their teams. The moment in the Super Bowl involving Asante Samuel is a familiar one. If Samuel doesn't drop an interception with just over a minute to go in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLII, then his New England Patriots - not the New York Giants - go undefeated for the season and capture the NFL championship.
