EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Lawrence Tynes kicked a 32-yard field goal with 1:03 to play and the New York Giants defeated New England 6-3 on Wednesday night in the preseason finale for the teams that met in the Super Bowl in early February.
This one was hardly as interesting as the title game, but the Giants (2-2) once again scored late to win. Adewale Ojomo set up the game-winning score with a sack and forced fumble against Brian Hoyer that Marcus Thomas returned 12 yards to set up Tynes' second field goal of the half.
Steve Gostkowski kicked a 20-yard field goal in the second quarter for the Patriots (1-3), who rested almost every starter.

Eli Manning and the majority of the Giants' starters played just over a quarter, with receiver Hakeem Nicks making his preseason debut. New England rested their starters with only fullback Eric Kettani and defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick starting.
REDSKINS 30, BUCCANEERS 3: At Landover, Md., Billy Cundiff made three of four field goal attempts — and was booed for the one he missed — making him the only first-stringer to do something noteworthy in Wasington's win over Tampa Bay.
Cundiff, signed Tuesday after the Redskins cut Graham Gano, converted from 39, 27 and 22 yards and got some grief from the crowd when he sliced one wide right from 46. The 2010 All-Pro joined Washington just two days after being released by Baltimore.Comment on this story

COWBOYS 30, DOLPHINS 13: At Arlington, Texas, Orie Lemon returned an interception 26 yards for a touchdown and No. 3 running back Phillip Tanner had a 1-yard score for Dallas.
Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill, the first-round draft pick from Texas A&M already tabbed Miami's starter, was 5-of-7 passing for 35 yards playing the first two series. The Dolphins led 3-0 when he was done.
