NFL notes: Giants rally late to beat Bills in HOF Game


CANTON, Ohio — Rookie Andre Williams scored on a 3-yard run in the New York Giants’ 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday night in the preseason-opening Hall of Fame Game.

Rookie receiver Corey Washington secured the win with a 73-yard touchdown catch up the right sideline from Ryan Nassib with 13:17 left. Williams provided the Giants’ ground game some punch with David Wilson sidelined by a second neck injury in less than a year.

Williams had seven carries for 48 yards, filling the No. 2 spot behind newly acquired starter Rashad Jennings.

Bills backup quarterback Jeff Tuel hit Robert Woods with a 2-yard touchdown pass.

Giants starter Eli Manning went 6 of 7 for 43 yards, but lost a fumble.

Letter: Bon Jovi wants Bills to succeed in Buffalo

CANTON, Ohio — Jon Bon Jovi said his prospective ownership group wants the Bills to succeed in Buffalo.

His letter in The Buffalo News on Sunday marked the first time the rocker has publicly discussed his plans regarding the Bills. The team is for sale after owner Ralph Wilson died in March.

Bon Jovi said his group is committed to working with state and local officials to identify a new stadium site in the region. He said it’s his intention to “carry on Ralph Wilson’s legacy” in Buffalo.

Bon Jovi added that he wants to clarify his group’s intentions in light of what he calls “conjecture.” Elected officials and Bills fans are concerned Bon Jovi’s group intends to buy and eventually move the team to Toronto.
