EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) 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 35 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).
