Giants Shock Patriots Again, 24-20

Elsa/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- The New York Giants (6-2) upset the New England Patriots (5-3) 24-20 on Sunday.  Eli Manning led his team 80 yards down the field and connected with tight end Jake Ballard to give New York a 23-20 lead with 15 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

All around New England, Patriots fans had flashbacks of the 2008 Super Bowl when Manning essentially did the same thing.

"It's a big win obviously coming in this place getting a win considering how good that team is and what they've done here in the last 20 games, it was a big win, to win it in the fashion we won it, it brings back memories," said Giants defensive end Justin Tuck.

With the win, regardless of what the Philadelphia Eagles do on Monday night, New York will still have first place all to themselves halfway through the season.

(1) LSU defeats (2) Alabama, 9-6 OT.

istockphoto(TUSCALOOSA, Ala.) -- Tigers kicker Drew Alleman hit a 25-yard field goal in overtime to give (1) LSU (9-0) a 9-6 victory over SEC rival, (2) Alabama (8-1).

Alabama's offense squandered numerous scoring opportunities, including four missed field goals.

"That was a heck of a football game," Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban said. "I was really proud of the way our players competed in the game. I thought that we played hard, we played physical. We played with a lot of toughness and it was a very physical game on both sides. We had lots of opportunities in the game we didn't take advantage of."

The road to the BCS national championship doesn't get any easier for LSU with regular season showdowns against Western Kentucky, Mississippi and Arkansas.

NBA Players Receive New Offer

Christian Petersen/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Take it or leave it. That's the message NBA Commissioner David Stern sent to the locked out players Saturday night, in which the league offered the union a chance to earn up to 51 percent in revenue sharing.

Stern says if the players do not accept their terms by Wednesday, the league is prepared to decrease future offers.

"The players will not be intimidated," Players Association Attorney Jeffrey Kessler said.  "They want to play. They want a season. But they are not going to sacrifice the future of all NBA players under these types of threats of intimidation."

The NBA has already cancelled regular season games through November.

Drosselmeyer Wins Breeder's Cup Classic

Matthew Stockman/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- Despite being a 14-1 long shot, Drosselmeyer came out of no where to win the Breeder's Cup Classic in the closing strides over Game On Dude.

With the win, Hall Of Fame jockey Mike Smith helped win the $5 million prize. He also beat his former fiance, Chantal Sutherland, who was the jockey for Game On Dude.

"When I looked at the wire and I saw white I said, 'You've got to be kidding me. Mike Smith. Ugh," Sutherland said. "But I'm very happy for Mike. That's his 15th Breeder's Cup so he's a pretty good rider."

Sutherland wasn't kidding about Smith being a good rider. His 15 Breeder's Cup wins is tied for the most all-time with Jerry Bailey.

Oklahoma Wide Receiver Ryan Broyles Tears ACL

Brett Deering/Getty Images(NORMAN, Okla.) -- One of the greatest wide receivers in the history of college football has played his last collegiate game.

In the third quarter of the team's 41-25 win over Texas A&M, Oklahoma wide receiver Ryan Broyles tore the anterior crucial ligament in his left knee and will miss the rest of the season.

Broyles' 349 career receptions are the most in FBS history and his 4,586 career receiving yards are the second most ever in FBS history.

"We're all you know, disappointed for Ryan for sure," Oklahoma Head Coach Bob Stoops said. "He's such a special, special player that everyone's talked about all year and for that to happen is really just deflating for him for and for all of us."

For the season, Broyles caught 83 passes for 1,157 yards, and scored 10 touchdowns.

Kyle Busch Parked For Remainder of Texas Speedway

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(FORT WORTH, Tex.) -- After Friday night's deliberate hit on Ron Hornaday Jr. in the Nascar Truck Series race at Texas Motor Speedway, Kyle Busch has been parked for the remainder of the Nationwide and Sprint Cup races this weekend.

"The responsibility that over the past two or three seasons we've given back to the drivers came I think with a very clear understanding that there could be a line that got crossed.  As annoying as the comments that I've made personally in the past about we'll know it when we see it, might of been we saw it last night," said Nascar President Mike Helton on Saturday.

Busch's Joe Gibbs racing teammate, Denny Hamlin will drive the No. 18 car on Saturday in the Nationwide race and Michael McDowell will race the No. 18 Toyota Cup car on Sunday.
