Rodney Hampton, the leading career rusher for the New York Giants and a fixture in their backfield the past seven years, underwent surgery on his right knee Monday and will be sidelined two to three weeks. The best scenario for new Coach Jim Fassel is that Hampton, who had loose bone and cartilage removed, will miss the regular-season opener against Philadelphia on Aug. 31 and he would be able to play in the second game at Jacksonville on Sept. 7.

Led by a season-high five interceptions, the New York Giants ended Detroit's 10-game home winning streak with a 35-7 victory over the Lions on Sunday at the Silverdome. The Lions (4-4), coming off their bye week, scored on their first possession, but the Giants dominated the rest of the first half with 25 points. "It really helped us that the defense forced all those turnovers, because that's a team that can score a lot of points against anyone," receiver Thomas Lewis said.

There was a remedy for the New York Giants: Rodney Hampton running against the NFL's worst defense. Hampton ran for 149 yards and scored a team-record four rushing touchdowns and the Giants amassed 474 yards and 31 first downs in beating the New Orleans Saints, 45-29, Sunday. "Things couldn't go bad forever," Hampton said. "Things have to turn around. That's the way I look at it. Today we did some good things, but we still have a long way to go."
