PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Eli Manning tossed four TD passes and the New York Giants' defense knocked Philadelphia's Michael Vick out of the game Sunday in their 29-16 victory.

Manning found Victor Cruz with two scoring strikes and hurled one each to running backs Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw in the win.

The Giants (2-1) scored 14 straight points in the fourth quarter to put the contest away after Philadelphia had earlier scored 16 consecutive points to take the lead.

But the Eagles' Vick gave way to back-up Mike Kafka for the second week in a row after suffering a likely broken (non-throwing) hand on a hard hit by Chris Canty.

Kafka was picked off with 8:07 left in the game on a deep sidelines pass with the Eagles trailing 22-16.
