EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Oct. 30 (UPI) -- Eli Manning's 25-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz with 5:58 remaining Sunday rallied the New York Giants to a 20-17 victory over winless Miami.

The Giants (5-2) trailed the entire game until Manning engineered a six-play, 53-yard drive in the final quarter, capped by his go-ahead scoring pass over the middle to Cruz.

Manning completed 31-of-45 pass attempts for 349 yards and a pair of scoring strikes with no interceptions for the Giants, who were coming off a bye week.

Cruz ended with seven caches for 99 yards and Lawrence Tynes went 2-for-2 on field goal tries in the victory.

Matt Moore managed just 138 aerial yards on 13-of-22 passing efficiency and ran in a touchdown for the Dolphins (0-7), who dropped their 10th straight game dating back to last season.
