Giants-Browns

The Giants overcame some of their demons yesterday with a win over Cleveland. But despite Cleveland being a more competitive team in 2012, was the win enough to proclaim the G-Men are back on track?

The highlights include Eli Manning's three touchdown passes, despite the absence of top receiver Hakeem Nicks and Ramses Barden. Victor Cruz shined, and Reuben Randle and Domenik Hixon proved to be worthy replacements.

Ahmad Bradshaw enjoyed a career afternoon with a 200-yard effort. And filling in for the concussed Andre Brown, David Wilson scored his first NFL touchdown.

From Jon Wagner. SNYGiants Columnist

Trailing by two touchdowns less than five minutes into the game, the New York Giants had the Cleveland Browns right where they wanted them.

For the second time in as many home games, the explosive Giants (3-2) stormed back from a surprising and sizable first-half deficit against an inferior opponent, with a 41-point outburst.

After Ahmad Bradshaw fumbled on the very first play from scrimmage, it looked like it was going be a long afternoon for the Giants at MetLife Stadium against the 0-4 Cleveland Browns. The Browns jumped out to an early 14-0 lead, so Eli Manning and the offense were forced to dig out of a deep hole.

Not only did the offense respond in a big way, but they also played the most complete game of the season, other than the first five minutes, in the Giants? 41-27 win.

Bradshaw must have been really irked by his fumble because he turned into a different player for the remainder of the game. He finished the day with a career-high 200 yards on 30 carries with a touchdown.

Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 200 yards and Victor Cruz caught three touchdown passes as the Giants (3-2) sailed past the mistake-prone Cleveland Browns (0-5) at MetLife Stadium this afternoon, 41-27.

The Giants overcame some early rust after Bradshaw's fumble on the first play of the game helped put the Giants in a 7-0 hole. The Browns went up, 14-0, shortly after on a 62-yard TD pass from 28 year-old rookie QB Brandon Weeden to WR Josh Gordon.

It was all Giants after that. QB Eli Manning (25/37, 259 yds and 3 TDs) led a balanced offense that featured a ton of Bradshaw (30 carries for 200 yards and 4 catches for 29 more), a little of Cruz (five receptions for 50 yards and 3 TDs) and solid performances by the team's top two draft picks: WR Rueben Randle and RB David Wilson.

First Quarter Blues

The Giants defense should have had a stronghold on the Browns this afternoon, but early on they came out flat. Consequently, the Browns? rookies burned ?em.

Trent Richardson, who said he would find running lanes against the G-Men, showed he?s a man of his word.

Here is how the SNYGiants staff sees today's game vs Cleveland:

Sam Spiegelman: Tom Coughlin won't allow his team to slip up with a possible "trap game" this week. The Giants' crushing loss at the hands of the Eagles will serve as motivation to make a statement against the Browns. Despite who suits up at wide receiver this week, Eli Manning will exploit the Joe Haden-less secondary. And perhaps this is the game in which Coughlin decides to get back to the running game. A turnover-prone rookie and the lack of healthy offensive weapons should be the perfect remedy for a Giants defense looking to regain its form. Giants 34, Browns 17

Kel Dansby: The Giants defense will play well enough to keep this a low scoring game. Eli Manning will limit his turnovers and the offense will wear down the Browns defense on the ground. I wouldn't be surprised to see the Giants start slow in this contest and enter the half down by a few points, but with the help of a few big plays pull away from Cleveland in the third quarter. Giants 27, Browns 16

Last week, Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora said in an interview on Sunday Night Football he was ending his Twitter feud with Eagles running back LeSean McCoy.

Apparently, he had another running back to tease in mind.

Cleveland rookie Trent Richardson told reporters he was not afraid of the Giants' D and he was confident he would be able to have success on them come Sunday.

The Giants are coming off an emotional loss to division rival Philadelphia and will face a another tough rival next week in San Francisco. This week, however, they have a home game against the 0-4 Cleveland Browns.

The Giants have historically had letdowns in situations such as these in the past. Defensive captain Justin Tuck was asked why his team comes out flat in games against inferior opponents:

"I don?t know. I wish I knew an answer because you?re right. We?ve had a tendency to come out in a lull. I don?t know. I think we are kind of guarding against that this week. Coach brought up the fact that the last time we played Cleveland? what the stakes were and how that ended up, so I think guys are on alert for that, but I won?t be able to answer that question."
The WheelHouse questions whether the Giants are in a trap game against the Browns.

Hakeem Nicks will be missing his third straight game this Sunday as he continues to nurse his foot and knee injury. Ramses Barden has also been ruled out due to a concussion.

All of a sudden, an area that was the Giants strength will rely on contributions from a medley of different receivers.

Victor Cruz is a given. After a few timely drops Week 1, he?s bounced back to show that last season was no fluke. However, if the Browns or any other opposing defense focuses on limiting Cruz, Eli Manning will need his other targets to step up.
