Saints vs. Giants: Eli Manning, David Wilson lead Giants to 52-27 win

Elsa

The Giants used a three-touchdown day from rookie running back David Wilson and four touchdown tosses by Eli Manning to cruise to victory over the Saints on Sunday.

The New York Giants defeated the New Orleans Saints, 52-27, on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

The Giants ran away with this game in the fourth quarter. After the first half and even after three quarters of play, turnovers kept the Giants' lead to just eight points. The Saints had actually opened the scoring in the game by returning an Eli Manning interception for a touchdown. The Saints relaxed on kickoff coverage and the Giants tied the game up immediately when David Wilson returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. New York would take a lead which it would never relinquish with Manning's six-yard touchdown pass to Martellus Bennett with 4:19 remaining in the first quarter. While the teams traded scores until the fourth quarter, it never seemed to be in doubt for the Giants. New York scored 17 points in the fourth to pull away from the Saints.

Fantasy studs

Giants running back David Wilson finished with 100 yards rushing and three touchdowns, two rushing and one from a 97-yard kickoff return. Giants receiver Victor Cruz had eight catches for 121 yards and a touchdown. Manning threw four touchdowns to four different receivers and finished with 259 yards on 22-of-35 passing. Manning was not perfect, throwing two interceptions as well.

Injuries

Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw sustained a knee injury in the first half, but returned to the game.

But did they cover?

The Giants were favored by five points at home and easily covered that spread. The over was set at 53 points, which was almost surpassed by the Giants alone.

What's next?

The Giants travel to face the Atlanta Falcons next week. The Saints will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC South battle.
