Victor Cruz and Ahmad Bradshaw set career bests Sunday in leading the New York Giants to a 41-27 victory over the winless Cleveland Browns. Cruz caught three touchdown passes from Eli Manning covering 3, 7 and 28 yards, while Bradshaw surpassed his yardage on the ground for the season with a career-high 200. He had 132 entering the game. The Giants are 9-0 in games he has rushed for 100 yards or more. New York (3-2) also forced three turnovers, including Chase Blackburn's interception in the end zone midway in the fourth quarter to clinch it. That led to rookie David Wilson's first NFL touchdown, a 40-yard scamper. The Browns are 0-5 for the first time since their return season to the NFL in 1999. They blew a 14-0 lead against the Super Bowl champions and committed 10 penalties in losing for the 11th straight time dating to last season. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL
