Nassib lifts Giants past Jets

East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Ryan Nassib threw three touchdown passes and the New York Giants rallied past their crosstown rival Jets, 35-24, on Friday in preseason action.

Nassib went 8-for-12 with 103 yards in relief of Eli Manning, who was under center for the Giants in the first half and completed 12-of-21 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown.

Rashad Jennings gained 67 yards on 13 carries for the G-Men while Victor Cruz picked up 61 yards through the air on four receptions.

All three quarterbacks who played for the Jets threw a TD, while the trio combined to connect on 22-of-33 passes. Geno Smith threw for 137 yards, Michael Vick picked up 35 and Matt Simms had 106.

The Jets jumped in front, 10-0, as Nick Folk opened the scoring with a 31-yard field goal late in the first quarter and Smith found Jace Amaro wide open in the back of the end zone for a short TD pass early in the second.

The Giants offense got very little going in the first half until Manning executed a two-minute drill that led to a score. Manning completed seven passes on the 11-play, 91-yard drive and found Rueben Randle for a 15-yard touchdown moments before halftime to send the Giants into the locker room trailing 10-7.

Vick lost a fumble just two plays into the second half, and it led to Nassib's 3-yard touchdown pass to fullback Henry Hynoski on the ensuing Giants possession. Vick responded on the next series, leading an 11-play drive and finding Eric Decker for a 3-yard score to put the Jets back in front.

Later in the third, Nassib went deep for Preston Parker for a 39-yard touchdown pass.

After Greg Salas hauled in an 11-yard strike from Simms to make it 24-21 in favor of the Jets early in the fourth, Andre Williams capped a 75-yard trek with a short TD plunge. Corey Washington's 31-yard touchdown reception from Nassib accounted for the final margin.
