New York Giants' news for Monday morning.
Victor Cruz: [Full transcript]
Q: Is there ever a time on the clock where you're worried?
A: With our offense and with Eli at the helm, we're never really too worried. We know that no matter what situation we're in, no matter how many points we need or a field goal, we have the confidence that we can do it. We can get ourselves in the right position to kick a field goal. We can get ourselves in the right position for a touchdown. We just have a lot of confidence in each other and in Eli and I think it shows on the field.

Q: What is it like to be a part of a game like that?
A: I said this week it was going to be a tough game and the physical team was going to win. We came out here to win. It was a great win and RG3 did his thing and the whole offensive line their thing. It was a tough game. Days like this we knew were going to be tough, so we just have to play hard.
Q: What was going through your mind when you saw Victor running down the field?
A: I wasn't even paying attention. I thought, this is good, it's another shot to go back out there and ... their offense. Eli did a great job throwing the ball under pressure. Did you see that play? And Victor Cruz caught it. Thank God for Victor Cruz.
Eli Manning: [Full transcript]
Q: Are you thinking touchdown in that situation when you're only down by three?
A: Well you think, "hey, we've got to get a field goal." I mean, that's the most important thing. When you're backed up like that you want to get some yardage, get in a good rhythm, move the ball. You've got three timeouts. You can throw the ball underneath and don't have to force the ball down the field, but as you get closer to the other side, if you've got that opportunity then you understand that you don't have to force things on third down if you get within field goal range. Your mindset does change a little based off time and distance but you always want to try and get a touchdown and win the game and not settle to go into overtime.
