Cruz suffered a torn patellar tendon in his knee against the Eagles and is likely out for the season

Week 9: vs Indianapolis Colts

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Eli Manning bounced back from his 0-27 nightmare in Philadelphia (13/23 for 151 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions and six sacks taken for -32 yards) to post a solid effort at Dallas two weeks ago (21/33 for 248 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions with zero sacks taken). During the good game, he hit Larry Donnell for 7/90/0 out of seven targets to put Donnell in the lead spot as a receiver that week. The TDs went to Odell Beckham Jr. (seven for 4/34/2) and Daniel Fells (one for 1/27/1). Rueben Randle moved the sicks with nine targets for 6/74/0 at second place in receiving yards during Week 7. The Giants' passing attack got on track in Dallas despite the 10-point loss. The Colts' pass D was utterly destroyed by Ben Roethlisberger last week, who posted an awe-inspiring 40/49 for 522 yards passing, six TDs and zero interceptions or sacks taken vs. the Colts. Two games ago the Bengals had the opposite experience, with 18/38 for 103 net yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions thrown, and four sacks taken for -23 yards. Indianapolis' secondary has swung between extremes of late. Manning and company should have a decent level of productivity at home in MetLife Stadium on Monday Night Football against the reeling Colts.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs PHI (3 / 2 / 16 / 0 rec)

Victor Cruz only managed two catches in this game as he ultimately had to leave with an injury. Cruz failed to make an impression in this game and couldn't overcome the bad situation the Giants found themselves in. The pass protection was not good enough and Manning went down often before he had an opportunity to look at players like Cruz. Cruz got in breaking route early in the game and had another short catch in the redzone but got tackled short of the goal line. Cruz' biggest opportunity came on a corner pattern in the endzone. Cruz got open towards the corner and Manning found with a well thrown pass but the pass bounced off his hands as Cruz looked to have sustained an injury on the play. Cruz did not see the field much in the second half as a result and may miss the rest of the season, which would leave a hole in this offense for a younger Giants receiver to attempt to fill.
