EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) If only the New York Giants could play the Jets every week.

Landon Collins and Donte Deayon scored on interception returns, Jason Pierre-Paul recorded a safety and Eli Manning and the offense showed a little life for the first time this preseason as the Giants turned the annual game for the braggin’ rights of New York into an early laugher and late thriller with a 32-31 win Saturday night.

After failing to score a touchdown in their first two preseason games, the Giants (1-2) got three in the first half against the Jets (1-2) in opening a 29-3 lead against the franchise with whom they are the co-owners of MetLife Stadium.
