PHILADELPHIA — Josh Brown kicked a career-high five field goals, Eli Manning played error-free and the New York Giants beat the Philadelphia Eagles 15-7 for their second straight victory Sunday.

Michael Vick returned for the Eagles (3-5) after missing 2 games with a hamstring injury, but clearly wasn’t healthy and was removed for rookie Matt Barkley late in the second quarter.

The Giants (2-6) snapped an eight-game road losing streak while extending Philadelphia’s home losing streak to 10 games. The Eagles’ last win at the Linc was over the Giants on Sept. 30, 2012.

In New Orleans, Drew Brees passed for five touchdowns and 332 yards, and the New Orleans Saints pulled away for a 35-17 victory over the Buffalo Bills.

Saints tight end Jimmy Graham played after missing practice most of the week with a left foot injury and scored on 13- and 15-yard passes over the middle, powering through tackles at the goal line both times.

Thad Lewis was sacked four times, intercepted once, lost two fumbles and appeared shaken up at times, but stayed in the game for the Bills (3-5), finishing with 234 yards passing and one touchdown. Buffalo’s Fred Jackson scored on a 1-yard run.

In Cincinnati, Andy Dalton threw a career-high five touchdown passes — four of them to Marvin Jones — as the Cincinnati Bengals drubbed the New York Jets 49-9 on Sunday.

Jones set a Bengals record for touchdown receptions, scoring on catches of 9, 6, 17 and 6 yards.

The Bengals (6-2) won their fourth in a row and padded their AFC North lead.

New York (4-4) took its most lopsided loss since 2010. Rookie quarterback Geno Smith threw two interceptions that were returned for touchdowns.
