A 14-yard touchdown run by running back Ahmad Bradshaw has helped the New York Giants increase their lead on the New York Jets, 17-7, as the Week 16 match up enter the fourth quarter. Bradshaw's seventh touchdown of the season capped a 4-play, 81-yard drive that was highlighted by a 36-yard reception by wide receiver Victor Cruz from Eli Manning. The catch also helped Cruz the franchise mark for receiving yards in a season (1,322).
In the second quarter, Cruz caught a pass from Manning and run 99 yards into the end zone to help give the Giants a 10-7 advantage.
If the Giants hang on then the regular-season finale against the Dallas Cowboys is battle for the NFC East division title and a playoff berth. The Jets are hoping to comeback and keep their hopes of making the AFC playoff alive. A loss would make it very difficult for them to earn a playoff bid.
The Jets will begin the fourth quarter with the ball on their own 20-yard line and facing a 3rd-and-9situation.
