There weren't any brawls between the New York Jets and New York Giants last night in East Rutherford, N.J. But there was plenty of ugliness.
Jay Feely kicked five field goals -- including 52- and 54-yarders -- and Michael Strahan had a forced fumble and interception to help the Giants beat their crosstown rivals, 15-14.
Bryan Thomas and Ryan Myers scored defensive touchdowns for the Jets following fumbles into the end zone, and the teams combined for eight turnovers.
It was the first meeting between the teams since the much-publicized brawl during a joint practice earlier this month in Albany, N.Y. Everyone played nice during the game, but the play itself was far from that.
With Eli Manning out because of a sprained elbow and Chad Pennington playing poorly, there were no highlights from either offense. Pennington looked out of sorts, throwing two interceptions into the end zone and losing a fumble when Strahan hit him from behind.
Tim Hasselbeck, who started in place of Manning, also lost two fumbles and threw an interception, finishing 9 of 17 for 85 yards for the Giants.
"We just can't turn the ball over," Jets Coach Herman Edwards said. "The problem is when you turn the ball over in the gold area and you don't score points. That's not good."
* PATRIOTS 27, PACKERS 3: Tom Brady guided New England on five scoring drives, even though only one of them was longer than 41 yards, and Corey Dillon ran for two touchdowns in a rout of host Green Bay on a rainy night.
The Packers had a forgettable first half that included numerous breakdowns on special teams and eight accepted penalties. Brett Favre threw two interceptions -- a third was wiped out by a flag -- and he lost wide receivers Javon Walker (finger) and Antonio Chatman (neck) on the same series.
* VIKINGS 19, CHARGERS 16: Locked in a dead-even battle with Aaron Elling, Paul Edinger kicked four field goals, including a 50-yarder, to lead Minnesota at home.
The biggest story for the Chargers was first-round pick Shawne Merriman's sprained left knee in the first quarter. Merriman, the 12th overall choice in the draft from Maryland, is listed as day-to-day and said after the game that he didn't think the injury was that serious.
Daunte Culpepper continued his stellar preseason, going 12 for 14 for 197 yards, but failed to lead the Vikings to a touchdown in just over 11/2 quarters.
Vikings running back Mewelde Moore mildly sprained his left ankle in the second quarter, but he said afterward he felt fine.
* CARDINALS 17, RAIDERS 16: A wide-open Randy Moss caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Kerry Collins, but host Oakland remained winless in the preseason.
Also yesterday, Raiders Wide receiver Doug Gabriel had surgery on his left middle finger and could be sidelined several weeks.
* PANTHERS 23, BROWNS 20: In Cleveland, rookie Efrem Hill caught a 21-yard touchdown pass from Chris Weinke with 45 seconds left as Carolina overcame some late penalties and rallied for the win.
* BEARS 16, BILLS 12: Adrian Peterson had a three-yard touchdown run with 1 minute 32 seconds left, and Chicago rallied after another rough outing by starting quarterback Chad Hutchinson to win at Soldier Field.
* 49ERS 16, TITANS 13: Joe Nedney kicked a 24-yard field goal with 2:10 left in overtime to give San Francisco the win at home. 49ers running back Maurice Hicks rushed for 47 of his 92 yards on the drive that set up the field goal.
Tennessee quarterback Billy Volek completed 13 of 17 passes for 140 yards and a touchdown.
* COWBOYS: The Jaguars traded place kicker Seth Marler to Dallas for an undisclosed 2006 draft pick. The Cowboys also released cornerback Lance Frazier, who started eight games last season and became the team's main punt returner after being signed off the Ravens' practice squad.
