East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Terrell Thomas' interception
thwarted an Oakland drive and set up the go-ahead touchdown, as the New York
Giants came from behind for a 24-20 victory over the Raiders at MetLife
Andre Brown, in his first game of the season after recovering from a broken
leg, scored from the one to put the Giants ahead late in the third quarter and
finished the game with 115 yards on 30 carries.
The Giants (3-6) survived a multitude of mistakes, including a fumble on the
opening kickoff that led to an Oakland touchdown and the third pick-six thrown
by Eli Manning this season, to earn their third straight win after a
disastrous 0-6 start.
Manning threw for 140 yards with a touchdown while completing only 12-of-22
passes in the victory, which was aided by a blocked punt return for a score.
The Giants have now won six straight coming off a bye and snapped a five-game
skid against AFC opponents.
Oakland (3-6) has lost two straight overall and eight in a row on the road
dating back to last year.
Terrelle Pryor ran for the lone Raiders' offensive touchdown and completed
only 11-of-26 passes for 122 yards with the crushing interception. He also
lost a fumble to derail Oakland's last series.
