Giants vs. Steelers final score: Eli Manning throws touchdown pass in 18-13 New York win

Justin K. Aller

The New York Giants bested the Pittsburgh Steelers, 18-13, in Saturday night preseason action.

It wasn't a pretty game, and few stood out, but the New York Giants bested the Pittsburgh Steelers, 18-13, in Saturday night preseason action. Giants starting quarterback Eli Manning came in and completed jut two of his five pass attempts, but one of them was a 57-yard touchdown to wide receiver Victor Cruz.

Cruz has a new contract and high expectations. That was his only catch of the game, and he didn't see the field for very long.

For the Steelers, not many stood out, though LaRod Stephens-Howling managed 40 yards off of seven carries, and wide receiver Justin Brown did manage four receptions for 32 yards.

Giants wide receiver Kris Adams appeared to suffer a pretty serious ankle or lower leg injury on his left leg in the third quarter. He was down and in obvious pain before being carted away to the locker room. No updates were provided on his condition, but it did look bad.

Steelers starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger completed four of eight passes for 36 yards before calling it a day.

Did they cover?

The Steelers opened as 3-point favorites and could be had for that amount on most books throughout the week.

Aug. 19, 8 p.m. ET: Pittsburgh Steelers at Washington Redskins
