EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- A bye week was just what the New York Giants needed to get out of their two-game November losing streak. Eli Manning tossed three TD passes and became the Giants all-time leader with 200 career TD passes in leading the Giants past Green Bay 38-10 in a matchup of the last two Super Bowl champions.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- If the San Francisco 49ers have a quarterback controversy, Niners coach Jim Harbaugh will take it. Colin Kaepernick (KA'-pur-nihck) improved to 2-0 in relief of Alex Smith and led the Niners to a 31-21 win over New Orelans, ending the Saints' three-game winning streak.

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The Baltimore Ravens are coasting atop the AFC North with a three-game lead over Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. Ray Rice converted a screen pass on a fourth-and-29 play late in regulation and the Ravens rallied for a 16-13 overtime win over 4-7 San Diego.

TAMPA (AP) -- The Atlanta Falcons kept pace with 10-1 Houston with the best record in the NFL, but it took some effort. The Falcons needed a fourth-quarter comeback to edge Tampa Bay 24-23 on Michael Turner's late touchdown.

UNDATED (AP) -- It was Pink Slip Sunday for five coaches of underachieving college football teams. Auburn's Gene Chizik, N.C. State's Tom O'Brien, Purdue's Danny Luck, Colorado's Jon Embree and Frank Spaziani of Boston College all got canned yesterday.
