Cleveland struck first with a field goal in the second quarter, taking a 10-point lead, but New York came back with a field goal of their own to cut the lead to 17-10. Cleveland was driving for another potential score, but Giants safety Stevie Brown intercepted Brandon Weeden and returned it into Cleveland territory.

Eli Manning hit Rueben Randle for 36 yards, setting up Ahmad Bradshaw for a 4-yard touchdown run to tie the game. New York got the ball right back when Josh Cribbs fumbled the kickoff and the Giants recovered at the Browns 29-yard line.

New York didn't waste any time, scoring five plays later. Manning found Victor Cruz in the end zone for the second time in the game to give the Giants the 24-17 lead.

Giants trail 14-7 after 1st quarter

The New York Giants trail the Cleveland Browns, 14-7, after the first quarter of Sunday's game.

The game got off to a rough start for the Giants as Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled on the Giants' first offensive play, and Cleveland recovered at the Giants 22-yard line. Cleveland running back Trent Richardson needed just two carries to get into the end zone and give Cleveland an early 7-0 lead.


The Browns extended their lead to 14-0 on their next possession when Brandon Weeden hit Josh Gordon deep for a 62-yard touchdown. After fumbling and punting on their first two possessions, the Giants finally got some offense going on their third possession. New York went 92 yards on 11 plays, culminating in a 3-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz.

With Hakeem Nicks out with an injury, the Giants are in need of a receiver to step up and complement Cruz. Early on, Rueben Randle has been able to fill that role. Randle caught four passes for 42 yards in the first quarter. All four of his catches came during the Giants' touchdown drive.

"He complained of a headache and asked if he could be evaluated," Coughlin said. "They sent him for the evaluation yesterday. I think a lot of the symptoms were okay, but there was enough there to slow him down. He is on the (concussion) protocol."
