EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — In case you missed the result of last night's NFL game, the Giants got three touchdown passes from Eli Manning in a 38-10 drubbing of Green Bay. The win snapped a two-game losing skid for the defending NFL champion New Yorkers.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Tonight's NFL game has the Eagles playing host to the Panthers. Neither team is having much success this season as the Eagles are 3-7 while Charlotte is 2-8. Once again the Eagles will be without Michael Vick, who is recovering from a concussion.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Mike Holmgren is out as president of the Cleveland Browns. When new owner Jimmy Haslam took over earlier in the season, Holmgren said he had hoped to stay until the end of the season in an advisory role. The club made the announcement of his departure after yesterday's 20-14 win over rival Pittsburgh.

NEW YORK (AP) — Notre Dame is the unanimous pick by the AP's college football writers to be the No. 1 team in the AP poll. The Fighting Irish received all 60 first-place votes after running their record to 12-0 with a win Saturday over USC. Alabama remained No. 2 after its 49-0 rout of Auburn.

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — Less than two years after he led Auburn to the national championship, Gene Chizik (CHIH'-zihk) has been fired following a 3-9 season. The Tigers suffered through an 0-8 record in the SEC. Auburn lost its last three games by a combined 150-21, including a season-ending 49-0 loss to rival Alabama.
