LANDOVER, Md. -- The New York Giants have shoved every distraction aside, including a shooting incident involving their star receiver, to become as dominant as, say, a Chicago Bulls team with Michael Jordan.Perhaps that's no coincidence.
Chadiha: Another Giant stepAs Eli Manning continues to build on his success, the Giants look more likely to repeat as Super Bowl champions, Jeffri Chadiha writes. Story
• The Giants won their seventh straight overall and improved to 15-1 in their last 16 road games including playoffs.
• Eli Manning threw for 305 yards, his first 300-yard game since Week 6 of last season. Without Plaxico Burress, Manning completed five passes each to three different receivers.
• After not throwing an interception in the first eight games of the season, Jason Campbell has thrown four in the last four games.
• Clinton Portis was held to a season-low 22 rushing yards. He's been held to fewer than 100 yards in three of his last four games (had five straight 100-yard games prior).
-- ESPN research
Portis suffered a sprained neck when hit by cornerback Terrell Thomas at the end of a 15-yard gain on a screen pass in the second quarter. He returned to the game in the next series. ... The Giants played without DT Fred Robbins (shoulder), giving Jay Alford his first NFL start. ... Redskins DT Kedric Golston (foot) was inactive, and LB Marcus Washington (ankle) missed his second straight game.
