Recap


Eli Manning tossed a touchdown pass to Victor Cruz with less than six minutes to play in the fourth quarter, lifting the NFC East-leading New York Giants to a 20-17 home victory over the winless Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

After an incomplete pass to Mario Manningham on second-and-12, Manning threw the ball over the middle to Cruz, who broke a tackle and scampered into the end zone with 5:58 remaining.

It was the second TD pass of the game for Manning, who also connected with Manningham for a 7-yard score in the waning seconds of the first half. Manning was 31 of 45 for 349 yards.

Corey Webster's interception with less than two minutes to go sealed the win for the Giants (5-2), who have won five of their last six contests.

The Dolphins (0-7), who have lost 10 in a row dating to last season, opened the scoring on Steve Slaton's 1-yard run with 4:10 left in the first quarter. They took a 14-3 lead 5 1/2 minutes into the second on a 1-yard TD rush by quarterback Matt Moore, who completed 13 of 22 passes for 138 yards.

Reggie Bush gained 103 yards on 15 carries for Miami, which had its highest points total since scoring 24 in a season-opening loss to New England on Sept. 12.
