Ahmad Bradshaw ran for a career-high 200 yards on 30 carries as the New York Giants (3-2) overwhelmed the Cleveland Browns (0-5), 41-27, Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

The victory by the Giants was not as easy as the final score might indicate. The Browns scored two touchdowns in the game's first five minutes to take a shocking 14-0 lead. The Giants roared back to take a 27-17 halftime lead, at one point scoring 20 unanswered points in the second quarter.

There were plenty of offensive stars for the Giants.

- Victor Cruz caught three touchdown passes and had five receptions for 50 yards total.

- Rookie Rueben Randle had six receptions for 82 yards.

- Domenik Hixon caught five passes for 55 yards.

- Manning completed 25-of-37 for 259 yards with three touchdowns and one interception.

- David Wilson ran 40 yards for his first NFL touchdown.

The Giants took control of the game in the second quarter. With the Giants trailing 17-10 safety Stevie Brown intercepted a pass by Cleveland quarterback Brandon Weeden on third-and-one from the Giants' 25-yard line. Brown returned the ball to the Cleveland 40.

It took only two plays for the Giants to score, a 36-yard pass to Randle and 4-yard run by Bradshaw.

Cleveland's Josh Cribbs fumbled the ensuing kickoff and Brown was again on the spot, recovering and returning it to the Browns' 29-yard line. Five plays later the Giants took their first lead on a 7-yard pass from Manning to Cruz with 1:16 left in the half. The Giants never looked back from there.
