The New York Giants needed a victory Sunday night, and they got a dominant one. The Giants manhandled the Green Bay Packers, 38-10.

The New York Giants had lost two straight games entering Sunday night's titanic clash with the Green Bay Packers, a meeting of the last two Super Bowl champs. In the days leading up to the game Giants' defensive end Osi Umenyiora said the Giants "need to prove that we are still world champions and play like it at some point."

The Giants Sunday night did just that in a 38-10 thrashing of the Packers at MetLife Stadium. The Giants put together a dominant performance on offense and defense, swatting away the November swoon talk and re-establishing themselves as a team to be reckoned with.

The Giants (7-4) lead the NFC East by two games over the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys, both of whom are 5-6. The Giants travel to Washington next Monday night.

Offensively, the Giants broke out of their recent malaise and had both the passing and running games working.

- Eli Manning completed 16-of-30 passes for 249 yards and three touchdowns. Manning, who had not thrown a touchdown pass in the previous three games, surpassed Phil Simms for the all-time franchise record.

- Ahmad Bradshaw ran 10 times for 58 yards and one touchdown, and had a 59-yard pass reception.

- Andre Brown had 13 carries for 64 yards and a touchdown.

- Hakeem Nicks caught five passes for 77 yards and a score.

- Victor Cruz had three receptions for 36 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, the Giants forced a pair of turnovers, had five sacks, and harassed Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers all night.

- Corey Webster had an interception.

- Osi Umenyiora had a strip-sack that led to a first-half touchdown.

- Mathias Kiwanuka, playing at various spots along the defensive front, had two sacks and six tackles.

- Chase Blackburn had six tackles and a sack.

The Giants raced to a 31-10 halftime lead, turning two Green Bay turnovers into points, Manning threw two touchdown passes.

Manning threw touchdown passes 16 yards to Rueben Randle and 9 yards to Victor Cruz, Andre Brown and Ahmad Bradshaw ran for scores and Lawrence Tynes kicked a 43-yard field goal.

Green Bay's only touchdown came on a 61-yard pass to Jordy Nelson in the first quarter.

The Giants scored the only points of the second half when Manning hit Hakeem Nicks for a 13-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Rodgers completed 14-of-25 passes for 219 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
