Giants' Cruz says he and Randle must get ball more

The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Victor Cruz understood the need for Eli Manning to look for supporting receivers such as tight end Larry Donnell and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan early in Monday night's 35-14 loss to the Lions.

But the star pass-catcher, one of the Giants' five team captains, also knew that targeting him just twice in the first half is not a winning formula.

Cruz says there needs to be increased targets toward him and Rueben Randle. But he says it all comes with continuity and building what the offense wants to build as the game continues.

Cruz had just two catches for 24 yards. Manning looked toward Randle only three times as Randle finished with two catches for 1 yard.
