East Rutherford, NJ—Eli Manning found Victor Cruz for a 25- yard touchdown with 5:58 left in the fourth quarter, capping a comeback and lifting the New York Giants to a 20-17 victory over the still-winless Miami Dolphins.
Manning passed for 349 yards and two touchdowns for the NFC East-leading Giants (5-2), who trailed 14-3 early in the second quarter and used a 10-point fourth quarter to earn the victory.
Matt Moore, making his third consecutive start for the Dolphins in place of an injured Chad Henne, threw for 138 yards and was intercepted once. He also ran for a touchdown, but Miami (0-7) had another potential win stolen away.
Last week, the Dolphins lost to Denver in overtime after the Broncos erased a 15-0 deficit in the final 2:44 of regulation.
