Dec. 9, 2012 at 8:17 PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Dec. 9 (UPI) -- Eli Manning completed four scoring passes and David Wilson rushed for a career-best 100 yards Sunday in the New York Giants' 52-27 pounding of New Orleans.

Manning went 22-of-35 passing for 259 yards with two interceptions. Wilson recorded three touchdowns -- including a 97-yard kickoff return.

Victor Cruz hauled down eight passes for 121 yards and a touchdown for the Giants (8-5), who scored their most points in a game since 1986 while maintaining their grip on first place in the NFC East.

The fading Saints (5-8), meanwhile, lost for the third straight week despite 354 passing yards and a touchdown from Drew Brees.

The New Orleans signal-caller completed 26-of-43 passes but was intercepted twice.

Darren Sproles caught a TD pass and also scored on the ground for the Saints.
