EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Oct. 17 (UPI) -- The second of Brandon Jacobs' two rushing touchdowns blunted a Detroit comeback Sunday and ensured the New York Giants' 28-20 victory.

The Giants (4-2) held a 21-10 lead in the fourth quarter, but the Lions roared back when Drew Stanton found Calvin Johnson on an 87-yard touchdown pass with 13:17 left in the game.

But two possessions later Nate Burleson coughed up the ball after an 8-yard gain and Deon Grant recovered it for the Giants. Ahmad Bradshaw ripped off a 45-yard on the next play for and Jacobs iced New York's win with his TD run with 3:24 to go.

Eli Manning tossed for 177 yards and two touchdowns and Antrel Rolle picked off Drew Staunton on the Lions' last-gasp drive.

Bradshaw ended the game with 133 yards for the Giants, who won their third straight.

Stanton replaced starter Shaun Hill in the first half for Detroit (1-5) after Hill suffered a left arm injury. He passed for 222 yards.

Jason Hanson booted a pair of 50-yard field goals in the Lions' loss.
