Giants | Victor Cruz quiet in Week 10

New York Giants WR Victor Cruz had just three receptions for 26 yards in Week 10 against a Cincinnati Bengals defense designed to take him out of the game plan. The Bengals were ready for the team's short-passing game after playing the Denver Broncos and QB Peyton Manning in Week 9. The Giants appeared to attempt the same strategy but managed just 45 yards after the catch on QB Eli Manning's 29 completions. "Everything was similar from last week's offense to this week's offense," LB Rey Maualuga said. "We knew that Victor Cruz was such a big part of their offense and is a great weapon. Most of our plays were based on doubling him and making sure where he aligned on every play. We wanted to execute him out of the game plan and then stop the run and I think we did a good job." WR Hakeem Nicks was the beneficiary of all the attention Cruz received. He caught nine passes for 75 yards and was targeted 14 times.
