After leading 27-17 at halftime, the Giants extended their lead when Eli Manning found Cruz for a 28-yard touchdown. The touchdown catch was Cruz' third of the game and he now has four catches for 46 yards through three quarters.
Josh Cribbs nearly matched the Giants touchdown on the following kickoff 74 yards to the Giants 30-yardline. The Browns, however, were unable to capitalize as they gained just seven yards setting up Phil Dawson for a 41-yard field goal.
Manning has completed 22-of-33 passes for 250 yards and three touchdowns. Ahmad Bradshaw has provided a strong running game for New York, rushing for 131 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Bradshaw was strong in the third quarter, gaining 51 yards.
