The New York Giants are 3-0 and once again winning with defense. Terry Kinard returned an interception 58 yards for a touchdown and the Giants' defense forced six first-half turnovers in a 35-7 victory over the Phoenix Cardinals Sunday.

"We should just play the second half," said quarterback Neil Lomax, who led St. Louis to 28 fourth-quarter points and erased a 25-point deficit for a 31-28 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday. It is the greatest fourth-quarter comeback in NFL history, according to league records, and the point total tied a team record for fourth-quarter scoring. Lomax threw three touchdown passes, two to J.T.

New York Giants Coach Bill Parcells says it was a week of worry for him, but he wound up with two victories he wanted. Jeff Hostetler, replacing the injured Phil Simms, passed for 177 yards in his second NFL start and also scored his first two touchdowns of his six-year pro career as the Giants beat the Phoenix Cardinals, 20-13, Sunday. Simms sprained his left ankle early in last Monday night's win over Minnesota and Parcells feared a loss to the Cardinals.

No more than 2 months ago, Ron Johnson sat at home, waiting for the telephone to ring and wondering if his National Football League career was over. The call came 3 weeks ago, and Sunday Johnson made the most of it by catching two touchdown passes and setting up another score as the Philadelphia Eagles knocked the Phoenix Cardinals out of a 3-way tie for the NFC East lead, 31-21.

The way the St. Louis Cardinals look at it, they owe their season to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Cardinals kept their playoff chances alive Sunday with a 31-14 victory over the Buccaneers, handing Tampa Bay its seventh straight defeat. St. Louis (7-7) was 2-5 and going nowhere with three straight losses before staging the greatest fourth-quarter comeback in NFL history to defeat Tampa Bay, 31-28, on Nov. 8 at St. Louis.
