EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Rookie David Wilson had a breakout game.  He returned a kickoff 97 yards for one touchdown, ran for two more scores and piled up 327 all-purpose yards and Eli Manning threw four touchdown passes to lead the New York Giants to s 52-27 win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

The win allowed the Giants (8-5) to maintain their one-game lead in the NFC East over Washington and Dallas. The loss all but ended the playoff hopes of Drew Brees and the Saints (5-8). The win also ended the Giants’ three-game losing streak against the Saints, who turned the ball over four times in losing their third straight.

Manning had TD passes of 6 yards to Martellus Bennett, 5 yards to Domenik Hixon, 25 yards to Hakeem Nicks and 10 yards to Victor Cruz. Nicks was active despite missing practice. Wilson scored on runs of 6 and 52 yards and finished with 100 yards on 13 carries on the biggest day of his career.
