David Wilson, Eli Manning Lead Giants To 51-27 Win Over Saints
Eli Manning threw for a season-high four touchdowns as the New York Giants maintained their grasp on first place in the NFC East with a 52-27 pasting of the New Orleans Saints at MetLife Stadium.
David Wilson rushed for a career-best 100 yards on 13 carries and scored three touchdowns -- one on a 97-yard kickoff return -- to help New York (8-5) achieve its highest single-game point total since a 55-24 victory over Green Bay on Dec. 20 of its 1986 championship season.
The win also kept the Giants in front of both Dallas and Washington for the top spot in the NFC East, with a 1-3 stretch that preceded Sunday's matchup enabling the Cowboys and Redskins to close the gap.
Manning finished with 259 yards on 22-of-35 passing and was intercepted twice, while Victor Cruz compiled 121 yards and a touchdown on eight catches to lead New York's receiving corps.
Drew Brees amassed 354 yards and a touchdown while completing 26-of-43 attempts for New Orleans (5-8), but was intercepted twice as the Saints suffered their third straight loss and saw their fading playoff hopes take another devastating hit.
