Quarterback Eli Manning looked to his top receiver Victor Cruz early and often. It was good to see. After a slow start to the preseason (0 official catches in three games), Cruz caught a pass from Manning on the first offensive play of the game. He was targeted seven times in the first half and finished with four catches for 61 yards. Cruz also had three receptions for 50 yards on the Giants' scoring drive to end the half. Cruz, Manning and the Giants can at least sleep a little better now heading into their season opener.
The Giants offense has struggled this preseason, but it's good to see Manning finally complete some passes to his WR1.
