New York Giants' backups rally to defeat New York Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Geno Smith and Michael Vick each threw touchdown passes with the New York Jets' starting offense, and the defense mostly shut down Eli Manning before the Giants' backups rallied for a 35-24 preseason victory Friday night.

Smith was 9 of 14 for 137 yards, including a 1-yard scoring toss to rookie Jace Amaro. Vick replaced Smith to start the second half, and after a rough first series in which he was sacked and lost a fumble, he led an 11-play, 76-yard drive capped by a go-ahead 3-yard TD to Eric Decker. Vick finished 4 of 5 for 34 yards in his two series for the Jets (2-1).

Manning, still adjusting to new coordinator Ben McAdoo's offense, struggled most of the way but hit Rueben Randle for a 15-yard touchdown with 5 seconds left before halftime. Manning was 12 of 21 for 139 yards for the Giants (4-0).
