The New York Giants
(3-2) beat the Cleveland Browns
(0-5) 41-27, today in MetLife Stadium
atEast Rutherford, NJ.
At first, I thought the Giants would be in for a tough battle with the Browns and didn't came close as "Big Blue" was leading the "Brownies" 27-17 at halftime.
Eli Manning got a lot of help from Ahmad Bradshaw who ran like a mad man and Victor Cruz also helped by scoring three touchdowns turning them into salsa dances.
This was the second time that the Giants had to make another comeback trailing their opponent by at least 14 points or less.
was picking the Browns apart downfield, even though his receiver's were being covered tightly by the Browns secondary and Eli managed to to find his receivers regardless. He went 25 for 37 with 259 passing yards, three touchdown passes and one INT.
had the best game of his NFL career by getting 30 carries for 200 rushing yards, scored one TD, fumbled once and loss it and caught 4 passes for 29 receiving yards.
scored a 40 yard rushing TD untouched by Browns defensive players which was his best run of the season and hopefully many more to come.
not scored once, twice, but managed to get the hat trick for touchdown reception in a totol of 5 catches for 50 yards.
had his best day of his rookie season by catching 6 passes for 82 receiving yards.
caught 5 passes for 55 yards.
played through an hyper extended knee injury showing he is a tough guy and overall he had 3 catches for 30 yards.
went 2 for 2 on field goals.
in the 2nd quarter forced a fumble on Browns returner Josh Cribbs
by stripping the ball away from him and Stevie Brown
made the recovery.
mad his first career NFL start and he caught an INT.
caught an INT as well.
The Giants offense had 30 first downs, a total of 502 yards (243 rushing yards), went 6 for 11 on 3rd down conversions and went 3 for 5 in the redzone.
The Giants defense held the Browns offense to 15 first downs, 375 total yards, 3 for 12 on 3rd down conversions and forced two INT's.
Great win for the Giants after being down 14-0 and there was no panic coming the Giants sideline during the game, even though there was concern among the fans.
It was too good to be ture for the Browns knowing they wouldn't come away with a win out of the Meadowlands. Eli Manning always comes thorugh in these tough spots and he shows why he is an elite QB.
